I’m Melanie.

A lot of words can be used to describe me. Mom, wife, crazy dog lady, horse crazy, bookworm, crafty, Volkswagen enthusiast, and developer are a few. While all of the words are accurate, they all describe my passions.

Being a passionate developer means that I truly enjoy coding and bringing a design to life. This requires attention to detail to acquire pixel perfection and a dedication to bring an idea to life one line of code at a time.

While I’m extremely comfortable with HTML, CSS, PHP, mySQL, and WordPress, I enjoy the challenge of JavaScript and occasionally Objective C. I enjoy learning new things and adding to my developers toolbox.

APHA Judging Application

The application was developed in Titanium Appcelerator, and was written in JavaScript. It was written for the horse show industry, as a way for judges to judge horses in the ring without billowing papers.

The application opens with a login screen. The judge is then asked to login. Upon successful login, the judge can view the classes coming up, and classes already judged.
