ABOUT THE PROJECT
MyBankTracker is a personal finance news website meant to help and educate consumers to make smart personal financial decisions. MyBankTracker has been around for quite some time, and the goal project was to not only redesign the website to give it a more modern look and feel but also to rewrite the application from CakePHP to Ruby on Rails.
The design was completed prior to development. As for the engineering team, a team of 4 was formed: two front end developers, one manager, and one full stack developer. I was the full stack developer on the team building out backend APIs and architecture while simultaneously working on the front end with AngularJS. Significant amount of refactoring was also done on the codebase, making it leaner and more malleable.
The website is now live at https://mybanktracker.com.
