  • Torchbox

    Creating an AngularJS app for Pennsylvania University, Philadelphia, for "Giving," which is where people can give money and other gifts to various departments across the university. For this app, I decided to go with ES6 and worked with classes. I carried out full unit testing and responsive Sass as well, and I had the chance to use a Postgres back end for the first time.

  • Admiral Car Insurance

    I was brought into Admiral to kick off a new dashboard app for their Telematics products. The app displays data taken from the black boxes installed in the customers' cars. Different gauges, graphs, and tables were used, and the entire app runs off of a configuration system I devised. This allowed the business to update the layout and the content of the app without making a change request to alter the build! The app was built in AngularJS, using many tools for development in Gulp. Alongside the development of the front-end code, we created unit, E2E, and visual tests. Mocha, Chai, Protractor, and BackstopJS were the tools selected for this job.

  • Fantasy English Premier League

    Fantasy football app produced for Fox Sports Australia.

  • Actual Experience

    Helping to build a white label React app that allowed clients to set up different components and settings for a network analytics product. I worked mainly with JSX templates and helping with the design work. Something of note; the end client was Verizon, in the US, so I created a system where we could "skin" or "theme" the white label app by changing a single JSON file only. This would then brand the app during the build process. This allows the app to be branded in minutes for other clients.

  • DotLabel

    Not a lot can be said about this project as it’s under an NDA, but the small information app was created in AngularJS and combined with PhoneGap to produce apps for iOS and Android. I was brought in as this needed a quick turnaround. The app consisted of four different parallax experiences linked together via a central navigation.

  • Wazoku Idea Management

    Added features to the idea management tool that they sell all over the world to companies such as Microsoft, BBC, and Aviva, among others. This is a Python project with a front end built fully on AngularJS. Along with new features, I also had the chance to refactor and debug parts of the app, which was a nice challenge.

  • iRelo

    Short contract to design and build a data capture user journey for an alarm company. The design had heavy animation and a very direct journey to get the user to the end as quickly as possible. Once designed, i created the web page in AngularJS to make good use of the binding and loading features.

  • Yell Mobile

    Added to the team to help bug fix and add features to the new and improved smart phone version of An excellent HTML5 project to be involved in!

  • Bouncepad

    WordPress site with light WooCommerce integration for the manufacturer of safe tablet enclosures for stores and public spaces. Built all the back end in WordPress and built the front end in HTML5, PHP, jQuery, and AngularJS.

  • Open to Export

    The project I worked on while at Hibu has now become its own company due to its success. This time around, I worked on giving the site a new look and feel while expanding both the admin area and the user-facing content. AngularJS is being used for the admin system and HTML5, JS, and Sass for the site. It is still working on the Freemarker MVC system.

  • Harrington Starr Recruitment

    WordPress site for Harrington Starr recruitment. Built the back end in WordPress and the front end in HTML5, PHP, and jQuery.

  • BMW

    Creating two apps for the BMW group.

    The first is a booking app that allows customers to book a newly created service called “Genius.” Once the user creates a booking, it then gets passed on to the admin app, also built in Angular 7. Here, the BMW or Mini retailer can view bookings, set working hours/appointment slots and generally administer the product.

    The second app is Real Time Test Drive. This is a new service to give customers the ability to see local stock of cars and then proceed to book a test drive. I made a single Angular app that had the ability to output two differently branded builds so they could sit in the BMW and MINI websites. Alongside these projects, I also mentored other developers and took on more of a lead/head role within the business. It gave me the chance to improve workflow too by setting up the Angular builds using Azure devops pipelines.
