Amy HenningAboutBlogProjects


Below, you'll find a selection of the personal projects I've built. If I'm working on something new, my goal is to blog a bit about the process. You can see some of my other projects on Github.

Word Counter

I wanted to practice regex and learn a bit about functional components in React, so I built this simple web app. It takes user-entered text and returns a word count, character count, and character count without spaces.

The first version of this site, with a customized theme I coded from scratch. Built with Gatsby.

Pokedex Screenshot

I've loved Pokémon since I was 8 years old. In a fit of nostalgia, I made a React app that integrates with the PokéAPI. Styling the app with pure CSS to look as much like the Pokémon Red/Blue games was a fun challenge! I wrote a blog post about how I built the app, too!

Korean Adoptee Library

I love Chicago and I love exploring all the tastes the city has to offer. Chicago Nomster is a Yelp clone built with Ruby on Rails. It uses the Google Maps API for locations and AWS for image uploads.
