Sticky Note
I wanted to create an application that seemed liked post it notes. I love using post it notes in my work to orient myself on a project but I always find that they are easily lost and usually in one place. Making this application solved having my notes saved to the cloud so I can have access to our post it notes.

About Me

Hello, it's good to meet you!

Picture for George Colon

Journey to Programming

I'm a Brooklyn, NY, transplant who moved to Los Angeles, CA to be a part of the tech industry. My goal is to change the world the way that California tech companies have been changing the world with their software innovations.

I'm a software engineer with UX & UI design experience. At the moment I use a MERN stack for most of my projects. I am also learning React Native and Unity Game Engine so I can make apps for iOS and Android operating systems.

In college, I studied fine art and digital design. In the planning stages of a project, I find my art skills are useful to communicate my design ideas on paper or white board.
