Completed the freeCodeCamp (FCC) Local Weather App intermediate project. This web app determines the user's local weather based on their geolocation. The background color also changes depending on the temperature range (like a heat map).

For the web app to work, you must have your "location" settings turned on (mobile) or allow access (desktop).

Please note that due to a bug in the FCC weather API. Sometimes the weather will show up as 28°C and in Shuzenji, JP. This is the fault of the API I am using.

About

Photo of David Nowak

Hi, I'm David!

I come from a civil engineering background where I've worked in the structural engineering industry for over 5 years. In that time I've gained a lot of knowledge, as well as practical and real world skills. Working 8-10 hour days allowed me to develop a very high level of problem solving skills, and the ability to quickly find errors in calculations, designs, drawings, and manufacturing. My attention to detail and abilities to think outside the box were constantly put to the test in day-to-day operations in order to solve real world engineering issues, and eventually lead to solving large company/industry problems. My abilities caught the Managing Director's attention, and I was being put on the fast track to becoming the Senior Design Engineer within months.

In addition to engineering, I was also able to work on numerous projects that really expanded my basic business knowledge at the time. As I got to see how the Managing Director worked and handled business decisions, it began to spark my interest more and more. I decided to supplement my learning by spending most of my free time reading the best business books I could find, and started to see links between the theory and practice. From all these experiences and the non-engineering projects, I had developed a good practical business sense. This is where my career mindset and the way I thought about things began to change.

Back in my engineering world, I also began to be annoyed by inefficiencies in the business and repetitive engineering tasks. Having to do similar things over and over again really began to bother and frustrate me. This is where I consciously decided to take up programming seriously. I had some experience with it in the past, but I never truely grasped the power of what you can do with programming, nor had the passion for it. However, that quickly changed as I began to study and eventually created some practical programs. When things started to make more and more sense, this is where I really started becomming passionate about programming.

I began to think more about how I could combine my passions for programming and business together, and what I wanted to get out of all this learning. The next logical step for me was to join my two passions together online and also learn web development. Together, these skills would create a powerful combination where I'd have many more possibilities available to me. I had reached that point in my life where I needed to make a decision if I wanted to continue down the engineering path or go on an adventure and follow my recently developed passions. I chose the ladder.
