Hi, I'm Jackie Santana, a Fullstack Software Developer. With a fervent passion for all aspects of technology—from front-end to back-end—I strive to innovate and shape the future of the digital landscape.
Profile photo of Jackie Santana
"My love for coding was inspired by my passion for learning new things. As a kid I’ve always observed things differently and always looked at life as an opportunity to learn and experience, innovate in ways to help others. The reason why I chose to learn code is because it is a euphoric feeling knowing that you can create something from literally nothing. When I create, I feel like I’m the most powerful person in the world. I love when I stumble upon a task to be quite challenging and difficult to figure out because situations like that keeps my brain sharp and only makes me stronger. I just look at coding like one huge puzzle, just putting the pieces together until they all fit"

The projects featured here demonstrate my focus on coding, logic, working with backend technologies, APIs, databases, and CRUD operations. While I could have utilized frameworks like React, I chose to showcase my ability to write vanilla JavaScript from scratch. My primary goal was to display my technical proficiencies and create functional applications, even running them on a Linode remote virtual private server on a Linux Ubuntu image server, using nginx, which I set up myself, including my own SSL certificate. Additionally, this portfolio itself is being run on an Express Node.js server and is hooked up to a Firebase database, manifesting my ability to work with various technologies and highlighting my comprehensive skillset. These projects were developed with an emphasis on the underlying mechanics rather than aesthetics, as a testament to my capabilities and ability to deliver solutions across a range of languages and frameworks.

Reddit Threads: Engaging Conversations and Nested Replies

TypeScript, React, ESLint, Webpack

In this Reddit-style comment thread project, I've leveraged the robustness of TypeScript, React, ESLint, and Webpack to create a complex, interactive comment system. By employing recursive data structures, the application facilitates a parent-to-child relationship, where a parent ID of null represents a root comment, and any ID that matches the parent's ID is a child. This relationship mirrors real-world discussion threads found on platforms like Reddit. The comment system is built as a CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) application with a maximum recursion level of 10. This constraint ensures that the nested comments do not continue indefinitely, providing a practical and realistic structure. The project is not about the aesthetics or UI; it's a demonstration of my ability to code complex logic, understand recursion, and work with trees. It's a functional representation of online discourse, highlighting the intricate relationships between comments, replies, and sub-replies, all driven by thoughtful code and intelligent design. Whether you're interested in the nested complexities of online conversations or the underlying technology that enables them, this project provides a valuable insight into both.

Covid-19 Tracker: Interactive Data & Insights

Vue.js, GraphQL, Node.js & Firestore Database

This Vue.js application utilizes ApexCharts.js to render charts displaying data queried from a GraphQL back end. Queries are stored in a Firestore database, and I employ Apollo Server with Express integration as the GraphQL framework. Although the site is not currently live due to their API server (https://covid19-data.p.rapidapi.com/) being down. You can still view the code to see how I've masterfully implemented full-stack development. This includes the secure handling of API keys, and the utilization of GraphQL to manage and query data efficiently. I'm currently working on implementing a new COVID API to restore the functionality of the site.

The main purpose of this app is to demonstrate the functionality that allows users to search for the current weather forecast in any city. The minimalistic design serves to highlight the core features without distraction, placing a priority on functional programming rather than UI/UX design.
