After their 12-week journey to becoming Full-Stack Developers, our students have grown their technical skills. These students have gone from little to no experience to learning HTML/CSS, JavaScript, React and then diving into a back-end technology stack to round out their full-stack understanding. We are proud to present to you our graduating students from Cohort 21.

Our Graduates

Mary Toth

Mary Toth: Developer, Musician, Vegetable Lover, and Nature Fanatic

Before coming to SDG, Mary was feeling very lost and stagnant in her career. She attended USF for psychology, worked in the field for a couple of years, and ended up at a secretarial job which was not mentally stimulating enough for her liking. She was really craving a change as well as a career in which she got to learn new things and feel inspired.

Mary has a passion for front-end development and is eager to join a team where she can improve upon her skills and be challenged. She really values learning from others and the opportunity to ask questions. Mary has an artistic eye and has thoroughly enjoyed designing aesthetically pleasing apps that are easy to use.

As a lover of fresh, local produce, I wanted to create the app Farm Finder that would help people support local farms in their area. Users can view a list of farms, filter by city and type of farm, and add farms to the database.


Bianca Brown

Bianca is a developer from downtown St. Petersburg. She is enthusiastic, easily inspired, and passionate about doing things that matter: creating web applications that make people's lives easier.

Bianca's capstone, Lego Log, is an app for that helps you keep track of all the Lego sets you have built, and all the Lego sets you want to build next. You can add to the “Build List” and “Wish List” by entering the Lego name, theme, piece count, price, photo, etc. You can also add comments and a rating to the sets you have built to help you remember what you liked or disliked about that particular Lego set.


Megan Lukes

Megan Lukes: Programmer, Explorer, and Bamboo Master

Megan is a fresh and eager developer that loves Back-End development. She loves finding clever solutions to create a functional and maximally operable program. Megan believes in teamwork and to view obtacles as an opportunity for growth.

BambooFinder allows a user to create a bamboo species profile, create a nursery profile, populate the nursery's inventory list with bamboo species, list which nurseries carry a given species, directly link between the individual nursery and the individual species, view a list of nurseries, and filter a list of species by their growth habit, hardiness zone, and light requirements.


Nathan Pham

Nathan Pham: Developer, Learner, Creative

I attended USF going for an accounting degree. I was working a lot and playing a lot of tennis. Wasn't doing anything that would further build my creativity or my productivity.

Nathan is a developer with experience in full stack web development. He enjoys learning new skills and techniques to improve the quality of his work. He believes in the problem solving process and collaborating when facing new challenges.

Zip Tennis is about connecting tennis players in search for a quick match. Using a general zip code search for players, view their rating, home court preference, and schedule a match. Users can make an account and view their past matches and scores.


Danny Le

Danny Le: Developer, Anime Aficionadon, Admirer of Happiness

Danny is a developer who wakes up every morning and can't make up his mind about whether he enjoys the Front- End or the Back-end more. One thing Danny is sure about is that he hope to bring about a touch of diversity and perspective into the personal and collaborative work he partakes in.

St Pete Rising is a full-stack application that interactively display a robust source of information on future, current, and past urban development locations that St. Pete Rising has reported on.


Brady Grapentine

Brady Grapentine: Developer, Lifelong Learner, Lover of Free Food

Brady's experiences in higher education and management have provided him with the interpersonal skills needed to tackle complex, layered problems and deliver comprehensive solutions, as an individual and in a team setting. Brady is a new developer with a passion for software of all kinds. He enjoys learning about popular and emerging technologies, frameworks, and algorithmic approaches.

To preface, I do a lot of research online, and I don't always buy the most amazing machines. I wanted to build an application that would let me search for whatever I wanted at whatever website I wanted. I also didn't want to open all the tabs and execute the same search query for every website personally. So, I built Query Dash that overcomes all those problems - without having to close all of the other applications running on my subpar computer.


Justin Marin

Sailor, Cat-dad, Aspiring JavaScript Master

After a six-year stint in the Navy, Justin worked as a higher-ed administrator where he was exposed to SQL. Not fully satisfied with the slower pace of a part-time Java certification program at St Pete College, Justin decided to go back to boot-camp, but this time for full stack web development at Suncoast Developers Guild. Justin loves to work in supportive roles and thrives under task-oriented leadership. He is extremely resourceful and analytic, and loves the way full stack development enables an outlet for his creative and problem-solving skills.

Justin's Capstone project, Cerca Cup, is a CRUD application with MapBox geo-points that helps him find the closest cup of coffee; be it from a cafe, gas station, or fast food restaurant.


Vicki Tiller

Vicki Tiller: Developer and Leonardo da Vinci Enthusiast

Vicki is a new developer back from five years teaching in rural Japan. She love trying new things and has a passion for sharing knowledge. Her experiences moving around and changing career paths have made her adaptable to different situations.

Vicki's capstone project, Gay Old Time is an interactive database that allows people to learn and share information on LGBT+ historical figures. It was inspired by a newsletter she worked on for Stonewall Tohoku, a Japanese LGBT+ organization.
