Spaced Repetition

The spaced repetition technique lets users focus on the words that give them the most trouble. This app tracks tracks user answers over time, revisiting words they answer incorrectly. Words that users get right are revisited less and less frequently as users master them.

About Me

During the past 7 years, I’ve been working as a personal trainer and during my free time I'd always look at design and coding articles. I've always been interesting in learning how to build fun and aesthetically pleasing websites. So I took a 1 year break from personal training to pursue UI/UX design by attending Bloc's designer program. That was a great experience for me and I learned a lot about what goes into creating a great user experience. After finishing the designer program I went back to personal training top save up so I could take Thinkful's Engineering course so I could learn to implement these design mockups myself.

Ideally I'd like to be working in a full-stack role working closely with designers. By utilizing my knowledge of various front-end and back-end technologies I'd like to help build applications that run as smoothly as possible for the end user. I'd like to help craft user interfaces that are both beautiful and accessible as well.
