Hi, I'm Blair! I've been coding since I was 13, starting with Lua on the Roblox game engine, creating games for my friends, others, and myself. I am a self-taught developer and have learned by doing and through other learning mediums such as youtube, official documentation and developer forums. I love spending time fixing little details and solving complex problems. Currently, I've been working with React and GraphQL in Gatsby, but I'm always excited to learn new technologies!
The website you're currently on. This project was built using Gatsby and was my first time utilizing gatsby as I wanted to challenge myself using a framework I wasn't familiar with to create my portfolio. Some challenges I faced were data manipulation so I could dynamically load images when developing this project section.
Frontend Mentor challenge utilizing TypeScript and React grabbing country data through the https://restcountries.com/ RESTful API with togglable light/dark mode.
This project was for a freeCodeCamp front-end development certificate. I wanted to use jQuery to apply what I learned in one of my projects. One challenge I faced was getting ajax to work properly, as the documentation wasn't so easy to go through.
If you have an opportunity for me, feel free to contact me at any time.
