Congratulations to the graduates of our Fall 2018 Web Development Immersive program. Each graduate completed a project using the skills they learned in the course. See below for more information about each graduate’s final project, including the technology stack they used.
Using IBM’s textual personality analysis, Movie Finder matches a user with a critic with a similar personality. On the basis of that match, it recommends movies.
Bookcrawler takes user-uploaded books and processes them with Natural Language tools to generate keywords that then connect books across the app, so users can explore meaningful links between all books uploaded.

Ever see a cool dog or cat and want one just like it? Using IBM Watson’s Visual Recognition program and Petfinder’s API, Life Pawtners allows users to upload images of animals they think look awesome to find local adoptable cats and dogs that are similar to the animals they love.
Food Mapp is a restaurant review app which cross references users’ “likes” with cities, states, and countries in which they have resided. A user can search for nearby pizza places and see that a particular restaurant has received a number of “likes” from folks who once also resided in Chicago.
ChatFix is an app designed to connect you with local professionals at the click of a button. By answering a few quick questions, you will be connected via text message to local professionals that will give you their rates and availability.
Final Project: AffordDBMD
AffordDBMD helps diabetics and their loved ones access local, affordable diabetes testing and medical supplies. It also gives users access to events and resources specific to diabetes.
Breed Finder uses IBM Watson's Visual Recognition service to identify the breed of a dog. Instead of payment to use the app, we ask users to help train Watson further by identifying breeds of three dogs before they upload a dog photo.
Heart Black Art
Heart Black Art is a Rest API designed to allow users to search for black artists in the United States. Use of the API will allow users to easily search and discover visual artists with a sample view of their work, locations, and social media presence for future communications and investments in art work.
