I'm Puja Fitzpatrick and
a software developer.
a scuba diver.
a lifelong learner.
Hi, My name is Puja Fitzpatrick. Becoming a full-stack software developer has given me the opportunity to combine my love of design with my life-long interest in technology. I'm passionate about creating accessible, incuslive, and responsive web content.
My experiences as a research scientist focusing on infectious disease (as well as wearing several other hats) have cultivated my attention to detail and problem-solving skills. I recently completed a 16-week immersive full-stack coding bootcamp at DigitalCrafts in Atlanta, GA. That intensive training allowed me to develop skills and proficiency in many different programming languages and tools.
When I'm on airplane mode, I enjoy turning bowls on the lathe, spending time outdoors, doing DIY projects, and exploring new scuba destinations. I have one cat named Itty Bitty, one dog named Coley, and one husband named Nick.

Coming Soon: Each user's GitHub repositories displayed on their "More" page, as well as functionality to search within a particular user's repos.

Space Force Prime
A SPACE SHOOTER GAME
Space Force Prime is a Python3-only application designed as a single-player top-down scrolling space shooter game.
It's the year 2069 (nice!), and President Barron Trump's U.S. Space Force program is in ruins. Amazon's Cyborg CEO, Jeff Bezos 4.0, just bought out the derelict military branch. As a newly-hired delivery human, it's your job to deliver packages to Prime customers while defending your ship, crew, and cargo. Good luck ...and watch out for asteroids!
Featured Technologies: Python and pygame
Let's Get Quizzical
A FUN TRIVIA GAME
Let's Get Quizzical is an 80s-styled trivia game created using Frontend technologies. Single-player (for now), a user can choose the number of questions they'd like, and from which category. "Surprise Me!" serves up questions from randomized categories.
Coming Soon: Two-player Mode with buzzing in and separate player scores
