Crescendo App

Crescendo

The Crescendo App features the ability for musical artists to create their own website. Users can submit images, videos, songs, upcoming shows, and social media links to help engage fans of their music. Fans can also sign up for the artist's mailing list. The target audience for the Crescendo App is musicians. After having created my own personal website for my music I felt it would be useful to provide a free website builder for other musicians to utilize. I am expanding this application.

Tech: HTML / CSS / Javscript / React / Node

Ghost Pavilion App

Ghost Pavilion

The Ghost Pavilion App was created as a personal website for my music project. The app allows fans of my music to sign up for a mailing list, see upcoming shows, listen to our music, and watch videos. Fans can also access a number of social media links. The target audience for the Ghost Pavilion App is fans of my music. I felt it was important for fans of my music to have a centralized website to peruse through, with recent updates regarding shows and music releases.

Climate Change App

Climate Change

The Climate Change App was created to display the effects of climate change. Users can enter in a city or click one of the markers within a Google map to show the projected max tempuratures within the continental United States. The map details projected tempuratures in Fahrenheit. The target audience for the Climate Change App is the general public. I felt it was important for people to know how serious of an issue climate change is by demonstrating their local temperture increase over time.

Tech: HTML / CSS / Javscript / jQuery

Quiz App

Music Quiz

“Do You Know Bands” Quiz App tests an individual’s music knowledge in regards to contemporary artists. The user answers a set of ten questions and the number of questions answered correctly will be assessed a “grade” at the end of the quiz. The target audience for the “Do You Know Bands” Quiz App is music fans, young and old. I wanted to make a fun quiz utilizing my skills in jQuery.
