AboutHOWDY

I am Shawn and my interests are in UI/UX, web development and games. I find satisfaction in bringing software to life and getting people engaged into the experience. Over the past few years, I have been working with vialab as a co-op student and for my undergrad thesis. There I have uncovered my passion for web development as I built a couple of projects under the supervision of Christopher Collins and Mariana Shimabukuro. I am a fresh 2022 Computer Science graduate on the job hunt and am working on personal projects.

Learn Italian verb conjugations through flashcards! Users can study and be quizzed on decks of verb conjugation flashcards that they organize for themselves. My thesis adds the Versus module which allows multiple users to compete in answering questions quickly and correctly. Players can assist themselves and slow down their opponents by using items gained along the way.
