PicScav iOS App

Perhaps one of the greatest achievements in my short career, this app is the culmination of everything I've learned both in college and at my first job as a developer. The backend is written in Java using the Spring Framework, hosted on AWS. The frontend is written in Swift and makes REST calls to the backend server. The full SDLC process was emulated in creating this app.

During a class on MVC at Grand Canyon University, we were assigned a group project to be done throughout the whole semester in which we had to create a Minesweeper web application. Utilizing SQL Server and Ajax to provide seamless Minesweeper gameplay, CSS and buttons to create the "mines", and some special algorithms to calculate surrounding mines, this was quite a fun application to make.
