Reactor Comics (January – May 2017)
The goal for this project was to make something like Goodreads for Comics. That is, a site that aggregates data about comics, as there is no central resource for comic fans to go to log what they’ve read and to find new things to read, in a customized way.
The core problem that I solved with this project is taking unstructured and unclean data sources (various sites on the internet), scraping a significant amount of data in a way that is repeatable and scalable, cleaning it, and then putting it into a database which I designed. I also built up a basic web app to allow users to see and interact with the data.
