Worked as a systems developer creating a portal and registration system for nonprofit organizations to request the Geek Squad Academy to take place their city. During the project we created an entirely new web system to replace an older system. This new system allowed for students and employees to register for camps that the Geek Squad Academy was hosting. On the project we implemented the Symfony PHP framework for rapid deployment and flexibility; as well as Bootstrap components to make the system mobile responsive. Worked on a team of two, which consisted of one other developer and our manager. Feel free check out the Geek Squad Academy at academy.geeksquad.com!
