About Me

An headshot of Samantha Atkins

My name is Samantha, and I'm a flight attendant turned developer.

After working for several years in the aviation industry, I decided to pursue my passion for technology and programming. I dedicated all of my free time to learning and practicing coding.

The transition from flight attendant to coder wasn't easy, but my experience in customer service helped me to develop strong communication skills and a keen attention to detail - two qualities that are essential in coding.

I love the challenge of solving complex problems and creating innovative solutions. I am looking forward to finding a job where I will have the opportunity to work within a team of talented developers and hone my skills while contributing my own knowledge and unique experiences. I am especially interested in backend functionality and web app development.

When I'm not at my computer, I enjoy traveling, watching live music, and taking advantage of all the amazing experiences New Orleans has to offer. I'm excited to see where my coding journey takes me, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to pursue a career that I'm truly passionate about.

Experience Neauxla

This project allows users to log 'outings' on an interactive map.
Each outing contains some data about the experience and local storage saves all of the user's outings so that they may be reviewed or added to on a future visit to the site.
This project was inspired by 'Mapty', a project by Jonas Schmedtmann, as part of "The Complete JavaScript Course" on Udemy.
