Just finished my first web app! Feedback would be appreciated!

Hey guys!

I’m new to this forum so let me give you guys a little background on myself:

I’ve worked as business analyst for about 4 years now, so I’ve had exposure to software development, however I’ve never created any software for myself but I’ve always had a curiosity for it. Well, when the pandemic hit in 2020 I suddenly had tons of free time (luckily got to keep my job but didn’t have much else going on) so I thought why not use this opportunity to explore my curiosity. So about 200 hours, many swear words and frustrating nights later, I manage to create my first web app!

My app is a simple web app that allows users to create accounts and view NFL team & player stats from the 2000 season onward. This app is built using Ruby on Rails and connected to a PostgreSQL database, both are technologies that I’ve never worked with in my full time job (I definitely did not make this easy on myself haha).

Anyways, here is a link to the app and my GitHub. I would appreciate if you guys could take a look and give me some tips on what I can do to improve as a developer. Thank you!!!

I don’t think many people here are going to be willing to give you their email address in order to evaluate your app. Do you have a test account we can use? I suppose I could create a throwaway email address but I’m to lazy to do it :slight_smile: Basically, if you want feedback on this you’ll probably need to make it very easy for us to log into your app.

Ahhh great point, my apologies for overlooking that.
