Projects

Stock Market News Analysis

Project Link

For the project, my partner and I analyzed stock price and stock news data using Python to ultimately create a machine learning model to predict stock prices based on current events.

Pantrie

Project Link

What it does:
Its tracks groceries that people have so that they can know what food they have in their pantry.
How we built it:
This product is an iOS application that was made using Xcode. We programmed it with Swift.

Tindimals

Project Link

What it does:
It matches people with pets that want someone to play with them (especially useful for shelter animals). It then allows the users to chat with their matches.

How we built it:
This product is a JavaScript application that was built in a JavaScript development environment.

Reputation

Project Link

What it does:
It accesses your social media followers from many platforms (e.g. Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin) and assigns a raw score based on how popular you are. This score is calculated based on likes, follows, and general engagement.

How we built it:
This product is an iOS application that uses the iOS-centric APIs of social media companies. We also used various third-party frameworks in order to speed up development.
