Vince Casbarro


I am a speech-language pathologist working in the acute care and outpatient settings, finding the intersection of innovative problem solving, evidence-based patient care, and the art of empathy.

I strive to be a life-long learner, and to that end I am diving into the world of web development.

Code Snippets

Temperature Conversion

This ruby program will prompt the user for a temperature in degrees Celsius and let the user know what the corresponding temperature is in Fahrenheit.

puts "Enter degrees in Celsius:"

def celsius_to_farenheit(c)

puts "That is #{celsius_to_farenheit(celsius)} degrees Farenheit."

puts "Enter a number you want to make an ordinal:"
number = gets.to_i

def last_digit(number)
    number % 10

def last_two_digits(number)
    number % 100

def ordinateur(number)
    if last_two_digits(number) >= 11 && last_two_digits(number) <= 13
        return "th"
    elsif last_digit(number) == 1 
        return "st"
    elsif last_digit(number) == 2 
        return "nd"
    elsif last_digit(number) == 3 
        return "rd"
        return "th" 

puts "That's the #{number}#{ordinateur(number)} item!"

Ordinal Challenge

This ruby program will convert a plain number to the ordinal of the number. So for example, if the user enters 2, it will display 2nd, if the user enters 3, it will display 3rd, etc.


This ruby program is an adaptation of a classic technical interview problem which displays sequences of the Foobar pattern.

puts "How many items do you want to see?"
number_of_items = gets.to_i

def remainder_is_zero(dividend, divisor)
  if dividend % divisor == 0
    return true
    return false

def foobar(number)
  foobar_array = []
  element_number = 1
  while element_number <= number    
    if remainder_is_zero(element_number, 3) && remainder_is_zero(element_number, 5)
      foobar_array << "foobar"     
    elsif remainder_is_zero(element_number, 3)
      foobar_array << "foo"      
    elsif remainder_is_zero(element_number, 5)
      foobar_array << "bar"    
      foobar_array << element_number
    element_number = element_number + 1    
  puts foobar_array

puts foobar(number_of_items)

Web Apps

This section is a placeholder while I get started until I start producing my own work!

webapp one

A database-powered quote generator with a mobile-first design, using the Ruby on Rails framework, HTML, and CSS. Uses Git and GitHub for version control, and launched on Heroku.

Yelp Clone

A Yelp clone that integrates with the Google Maps API and includes features like user comments, star ratings, image uploading, and user authentication.

Two-Sided Market Place

A two-sided, video-streaming marketplace platform that features credit card payment capabilities, user role management, complex user interfaces, and advanced database relationships.

Test Driven Development

An Instagram clone that was built using industry-standard, test-driven development following numerous red/green/refactor cycles.

Single Page To-Do Application

This single-page to-do application features a fluid user interface that– by using JavaScript– allows users to rapidly add dynamic content.

Agile Team Project

Worked on an Agile software development team building a chess application. Under the guidance of a senior software engineer, we had weekly Agile team meetings for code reviews, sprint planning, and feature assignments.
