Failed my first technical assessment
Received a technical assessment
Received and failed my first technical assessment in my job hunt for my first role in Software Development.

The assessment required me to build out a front end interface with unit tests. I'd never written unit tests before so failing this technical assessment taught me to research, write, and connect the front end with the tests. I learned about Jest. ✨

This interview process was actually a positive one even though I failed it and didn't get the job.

Waste Watcher is a web and mobile application that makes recycling fun. It provides a way to track what and how often users recycle and shows users the impact they're making on the environment. Points are awarded for every item recycled-- every 100 points a digital tree is planted. The ultimate goal of the app is to spread awareness of how important recycling is for the environment, and make recycling more accessible for everyone.

This project has authentication implemented, so you can create an account and track your recycling habits. It's completely responsive so you're able to do everything on mobile as you are on web.
