Web design & development
Hello! My name is Sarah Verbelen. I'm a 20 year old student from Belgium with a focus on website design & development. Other than that I spend my time reading, writing, drawing cats and learning new things!
Final Show 2020
Over the span of three weeks I worked together with a team of my classmates to bring our school's Final Show to a digital platform. It included a 3D model of the campus, a live chat, a place to view the livestream and a room in which you could walk around to meet new people and make connections. This was coded with Angular, Typescript, HTML and CSS. I focused mainly on the 'interaction room', where you could meet other people in real time by digitally 'walking around', like you would at the physical event.

ABC Lesson Planner
These were small prototypes for my Web III course in order to quickly get to know a new technology. You can find the full repository here.
I learned the basics of react and made a small to-do app in about one day. I used props, states and components. You can create new to-do's, delete them and mark them as done.
Restify + MongoDB
It took me about two hours to learn how to make this small API using Restify. It can serve an HTML, return data with a get request and save data to a Mongo Atlas database using a post request. I used Postman to test the API routes.
I made a chrome extension that reads the titles from posts in the subreddit r/worldnews and saves them to a mongoDB database. It also highlights the posts that have less than 1000 upvotes. It comes with a front-end React application that displays the data from the database.
AI & ML in Python
I learned to use Python for the first time and used Scikit Learn to train my very first AI model to do sentiment analysis. This prototype included a front-end React application that made a connection a python api that used my model to return an analysis of a text. The model was trained with a Dutch dataset.
Final Work Prototype
This was the final prototype I made. It tried to integrate some of the other technologies I had learned to make an application existing of a chrome plug-in and a python api that could work together. It read the posts on Reddit, gave them an AI-based sentiment analysis and displayed this.
