    2019 - 2019
    Freelance Client

    • Performed data entry to keep the gig guide updated. This included making backups of a production database and using custom calls to mass populate the database with correct information.

    • Designed and implemented an automated system that would crunch numbers in the morning every day to eliminate human error. This calculated the real number of passengers that went through the airport with a 99.8% accuracy.

Experience

  • Hova App — Making Hospitality Shifts Quick and Easy
    https://hovaapp.com/

    A cross-platform app that was developed over eight months from the ground up.

    I worked as a full-stack developer for the project with a small team of four. I mostly developed the front end but worked closely with the back end to make sure things would integrate smoothly.

  • Speech Sound Pics (SSP) Piano App
    https://www.speechsoundpics.com/

    The Speech Sound Pics (SSP) Piano app (iPad and tablet) is designed to help children develop phonemic awareness and phonics skills using a scaffolded, systematic "speech to print" approach.

    I was the lead developer for this project using React Native to bring it to life. Working closely with Miss Emma, who was on the other side of the world, I designed and developed the app to meet her needs. I also learned a lot about the English language—how it breaks down into graphemes and phonetics—and designed a system that the app uses to teach the right way.

  • Gig Guide for the Gold Coast
    http://gigl.com.au

    A cross-platform app and website for connecting music artists with venues to play live music. It also acts as a gig guide for finding live music near you. I worked mainly as the lead app developer in the early stages and helped a lot with the website codebase.
