Pop ballons game

Pop The Balloons

This was the first time I fully built something from the ground up just using CSS and HTML.
It was a fun but very challenging game to build which is set at a night carnival, where you can pop some balloons for fun.

Simple exciting game where you get to pop some balloons on your way home.

Learn to dance

Learn to dance mzansi

This was an individual project. I have used EJS together with jQuery and Ajax as a front end tool to create a very slick looking web app that teaches you how to dance. Fully RESTful you can login and logout securely and upload videos that are kept in the database that I created from scratch using MongoDB and Express.

A bit about myself

I’ve worked in the performing-arts sector over the years, from social media monitoring, coordinating live music events and curating visual art exhibitions in Southern and Eastern Africa mostly.

Travelling between countries and continents, I often used my laptop to create personal sites for musicians and artists. To create these portfolios, I was using website builders.

They were expensive to maintain and limited regarding the scale of creativity and customisation for myself and ultimately the client. This is why, I decided that I would like to build my own website from start to finish.

Due to the limited resources and technologies back home in South Africa, I then moved to London and joined GA. I fully immersed myself in the web development community to unlock my potential in the digital sphere.

After discovering the various paths in web development, I learn and admire the fact that you can work in teams as a developer (like joining a band again). Getting my feet wet in front-end development is where I would like to start my journey with the possibility to later on jump back into back-end development to become a well rounded full-stack developer.
