From working on RentZen, my partner and I were challenged with the task of creating an application for the use of landlords and prospective renters. Not only did we interact with API endpoints, but we also created our own API endpoint that our server and database communicated with. Working on this project helped familiarize myself working with NodeJs for APIs and how it is used to develop API interfaces and NodeJs for devops and how it is used from the command line to preform system operations. RentZen exposed me to working with synchronous code rather than asynchronous code and how to create connection objects to be able to communicate with a database (specifically mySQL). My partner and I learned how to make use of Google Developer Tools and interpret the status response codes. We also learned how to integrate open source tools to enhance the functionality of our application through the use of the Google Maps API.
