About Me

Hey there! My name is Dylan Sanders and I'm a Developer, Feminist, Francophile, Piña Colada Enthusiast, and R. Kelly SuperFan. Currently, I'm in love with Meteor.js and Python with special interests in AI/ML/NLP/CV and other acrynoms.

When I'm not staring at a computer screen all day I enjoy music, comedy, traveling, fitness, and painting. I studied in Paris for a year and fell in love with the city so I like to split my time between there, Orange County, and San Francisco.

Also, I love puns and gifs. I hope that doesn't change your image of me...

(not funny, I know. I'm sorry)

Pink Scroller - Meteor

project name

Sticky Notes - Meteor

A productivity web app similar to Trello for organizing virtual "sticky notes" using drag and drop.

See the code

project name

Pysetta(Stone) - Python

A script that will quiz me on a random phrase every time I open a new terminal. It pulls from a text file in the format question=answer so it can be used for anything that follows that structure. For French, I thought it would be nice to hear the correct pronunciation as I learned the phrases so I set up text to speech with Pyvona.

project name

Calendar - Meteor

A simple Calendar app that allows users to create edit and delete tasks.
