A self-taught software engineer with a passion for entrepreneurship.

About Me

Hi! My name is Calix Huang and I love software engineering! I am homeschooled as a part of an independent study online program called Connections Academy. I am completely self-taught, using online resources to teach myself every single thing I know about software engineering.
I also love entrepreneurship, so I try to model my projects around useful ideas that can be deployed to users around the globe. My skills in full-stack development allow me to take a project from an idea to a product.

My Projects

These are all of the projects I've completed! I always maintain and improve each one, and I am always open to others joining the team or helping test out the software!

Remember! All of these projects are hosted on free dynos on Heroku. These applications sleep when it is not being used, so on first load it will be very slow. Please be patient when viewing these projects!
