Deductive Wine Taster
A tool for blind tasting wine with the deductive tasting format.
Use Deductive Wine Taster to memorize the deductive tasting format suggested by the Court of Master Sommeliers Americas in preparation for the Certified Sommelier examination and its possible grape varieties and growing regions used in the exam.
Keep record of your tasting history! Save the results of your guess and the actual wine variety is revealed to be for review later. The application will also attempt to make a guess of grape variety base on your own input of wine characteristics!
This is most useful for those studying and tasting for the Certified Sommelier examination for the Court of Master Sommeliers Americas. The application is modeled after and will only accept information in relation to the accepted grape varieties and growing regions for red and white wine that are used in the certified examination.
I am interested in the world of wine and oenology (the study of wine). So naturally, I decided to start a project with this in mind.
I have done a great deal of studying wine in order to prep for the Certified Sommelier exam by the Court of Master Sommeliers. This web application helps when blind tasting wines to point you in the right direction of what a wine might be based on its characteristics.
This project utilizes PHP and MySQL. However, I am currently in the process of porting over to Node.js.
You can find the source code for this project in my Wine Guesser GitHub repository.
I always like to find ways to be more efficient and save time. When I noticed it was taking quite a while for one of my managers to write a schedule, I thought I would make one of my first coding projects to help speed up that process. Using .NET WPF, and not quite complete, this program is meant for you to input all of your employees and their available shifts along with jobs available for assignment and output an Open Document Format spreadsheet with everyone scheduled in their relevant positions.
Although I am sure there are many other applications out there that do this and probably do it better, this is one of the many side projects I will be churning through to expand my programming skill-set.
