Study Stride

Studystride is a study aid for learners to help them maintain motivation in their own studies. It features secure user authentication and session management, ensuring a reliable user experience. Users can easily initiate conclude study sessions, and the application records the duration of each sesion, by topic. This session data is then transformed into user statistics, allowing users to track their study habits and push toward goals. To that end, I've implemented gamification for users, rewarding users with badges for every 10 hours of study completed. The project also includes a feedback interface, allowing users to offer suggestions, and an admin login for managing feedback and accessing app usage statistics.

  1. User Authentication: Secure login credentials and server-side validation.
  2. Study Session Management: Start, end, and track study sessions.
  3. Study Statistics: Insights into overall study habits and per-week progress.
  4. Topic Breakdown: Statistics categorized by different study topics.
  5. Milestone Tracking: Set and mark study milestones.
  6. Gamification: Badge rewards for every 10 hours of study.
  7. Feedback Interface: User feedback collection and management.

Sovereign Renovations

I took on a client to demonstrate my ability to produce code with real-world impact. This was built with an HTML template, which I tailored for the client's needs and added a custom Angular application for his gallery. That gallery uses the Contenful API to allow the client to expand their gallery moving forward.
