Wines Website


Source Code

Sommelier’s Corner – this individual project involved the MERN stack. I designed and developed the user interface, API, and Mongo database set-up. I managed to complete the first iteration of this project from start to finish in ten days.

Brief Introduction

Every programmer needs a moment to just take their eyes off the screen, lean back, relax, and enjoy a nice glass of wine.

My simple application allows users to create a wine preference profile and search recommended wines based on the grape variety they like. Users can add the wines to their cellar and save them to their profile. As a subsequent iteration, I would like to display the profile with the saved wine list and add more functionalities, like modifying, adding, and removing the wines; searching recommendations based on criteria; and pairing wines with different cuisines.

The application is very straightforward and requires no tutorial at all as it is basically self-explanatory. Just fill out the form, submit it, and your profile will be displayed. Then, you can select a grape variety from the dropdown menu and the application will list 4 recommended wines. You can add the wines to your cellar and once you have decided on your wine list, you can save it to your profile.

Movie Apps

Source Code

I wanted to create a nostalgic, cinematic experience by displaying the flashing “Now Showing” signage and classic theatre red curtains while playing Sinatra on the radio. The list of movies displayed on the website are productions of the past, few decades up to the present time. The movie poster images, titles, descriptions, and ratings were retrieved from IMDb API, Go ahead, grab a bag of buttery popcorn and enjoy! Don’t forget to purchase the “Langara Rocks!” Tee.

React Native Movie App

Source Code

I created this movie app using React Native and NativeBase. It’s a simple application that has 2 tabs listing out different categories of Movies and TV Shows. It also has a search function to find productions by title and type.
