– Hey there! I'm Noelle Laureano, a full-stack engineer.

After developing major dashboards in the finance industry for several years, the urge to switch contexts and dive further into tech grew too strong to ignore.

In January 2018, I left the security and stability I had always known to focus solely on honing and growing my programming skills.

My passion for developing is unmatched. Every day I wake up pumped to collaborate, design and code. I love every aspect of bringing an idea to fruition and find each step of the way exciting.

Front-End

JavaScript • ReactJS • Redux • HTML5 • CSS3 • Sass

Back-End

Ruby on Rails • NodeJS • Express • AWS • MySQL • PostgreSQL • MS SQL Server • Firebase

When I'm not coding, you can find me...

Projects

MapStack

A social media platform that allows users to create, follow and stack maps on one another to curate a perfect collection of places to explore in their own neighborhood or halfway around the world.


Saucesome

A mock e-commerce site that sells a carefully curated selection of gourmet hot sauces from small-match makers around the world. Saucesome also integrates the Mapbox API to show the shoppers where their desired hot sauce is made.


The Listening Room

Passionate about music, Luis Rincon and I developed The Listening Room during a four-day hackathon. By leveraging Firebase's Cloud Storage and Realtime Database, users are able to seamlessly upload mp3 files, and listen and chat about music simultaneously anywhere in the world, without skipping a beat. The minimalistic front-end was built using React and Flexbox.


GRACE Card

A bingo-like rubric for Fullstack Academy and Grace Hopper Program students to track their progress and develop their "Grace Shopper" e-commerce sites according to industry norms.
