Software engineer with a passionate interest in distributed systems, scalable architectures, and robust applications.
Starting in programming computers at 9 years old, I have written software in a wide breadth of technologies and fields, most recently focused on architecting scalable and maintainable systems using managed AWS primitives and serverless technologies.
I have a strong DevOps ethos, preferring to operate and support on the systems I build. A self-motivated learner, I'm able to adapt quickly to change and to find pragmatic solutions as urgent requirements arise.
Currently: working at askporter as a software engineer.
My previous roles are listed on my LinkedIn page.
Here are some past things I've worked on:
- A platform for connecting young people with the opportunities and information they need to succeed in their first careers. I was the sole developer on this project for the first year, and I was responsible for designing, architecting, developing, and deploying the application across mobile, web, database, and backend.
- TISS Mobile
- A mobile information portal for a B2B business, used by sales and distribution partners all over the world, including South Africa, Mexico, and India. On the App Store.
- Career in Health
- Prototype recruitment platform aimed specifically at the British Health & Care industry. I worked on this while interning at a reasonably well established software development company from my local area, who had special expertise relating to the Health & Care industry. GitHub repository.
- A basic video game made for LudumDare 28, using Java and a library called Slick2d. I made this when I was very young - I'd just turned 11. The source is lost to history. Here's an archive of the original LudumDare page - and there's also an archive of my itch.io page, where I uploaded other small games, and an archive of the blog I had at the time.
