Web site for a real steate office
We were hired to build the whole web site. The features should mimic the old site but using newer technologies and some new features.
A relative had a site for his busines but it was really outadated. The site had some features in flash (no longer supported) and was not a good experience for mobile user. We figured out that the best solution was recreate the site using tecnologies more fit to current needs.
It was really good to put to use the web development skills in a real project. Besides some smaller challenges, most of the learning came from put the site on line and manage/improve it while running.

Android app that plays songs to help babies fall asleep.
We used to play relaxing songs to our baby to sleep. That became a routine and we started needing this everyday. To avoid having to rely on a internet conection we decided to create a simple app that would play the song. Later we added some features like automatically stop after some play time.
This project was made using Java on the Android Studio IDE. Initially it was just for personal use but we decided to publish it and we are happy to know that this app is also useful for other families.
It was a good way to learn more about android services and audio players.

Memory game for Android
This project was our first Android app created and published. Its main purpose was to learn how to do every step of the app development in practice.
One of our goals is to create games that help kids learn while having fun. We had to start from somewhere so we develop a simple game in order to execute every step of a project in practice.
This project was made using Java on the Android Studio IDE. As it was a study project, no game engine was used. It was all developed in its own little engine using mostly the Android Canvas class.
We learned a lot on this project but the main points were: optimizations to avoid using too much battery, publishing the app on the Google Play Store and placing ads on the app.
