Inventory Scanner is a mobile application for Anne Arundel County employees to scan bar codes for yearly inventory throughout the county. I developed it with a small team to reduce paper processes as well as save money on bar code scanners that were being purchased by Anne Arundel County.

We developed the mobile app using a proxy that built a GraphQL API on top of an existing RESTful API that the county had already built. This way we could have the benefits of GraphQL without replacing the old system entirely. We used React Native to develop this mobile app. It was one of my first fully-fledged apps I had build with React Native and was an amazing learning exprience for me to see where I could improve the cleanliness and structure of my code.
