  • 99 Remind

    99 Remind is a SaaS website that allows businesses to manage their customers, staff, and bookings and remind their clients and staff about upcoming appointments. I was one of two developers who worked on the project. It was built with a React front end, a Node.js and Express.js back end, and MySQL, and deployed on Google Cloud.

    My initial focus was on the back end and creating a REST API for the front end and any future clients, such as mobile apps. The back end comprises authentication; CRUD operations for things such as customers, services, appointments, and reminders; and multiple integrations. I also integrated Stripe, Twilio, SendGrid, and Google Cloud logging and error reporting into the project. Authentication on 99 Remind is permission-based, meaning that admins can do things like manage billing and edit subscriptions, whereas regular users can create events and manage their customers and appointments.

    The front-end work was split, but I built out a front end for users to see prior to signing up, an authentication flow, and then a multi-business, multi-user dashboard for working with the platform.

  • Flutter

    Flutter was a mobile app for Android and iOS that I developed for a client, using React Native, React Navigation, and Redux. The App was for people in New York to find local events and book them in-app. It also gave users a space to hold their bookings and show them as paid when arriving at the door of venues. I also integrated Stripe for payments and a nice Tinder-style card swiper so that users could get recommendations tailored to their interests.

  • Live Casino

    A gambling application that allows users of to play live casino games in their pocket. The app itself started as a project containing 24 native apps developed with React Native. The integrated app features include face and touch ID, push notifications, social login, On-demand Resources accessing game content, and Firebase.

    This is the first app I developed while working at LeoVegas, and it's been a huge success since it was released in 2018. The userbase has grown organically to thousands of users, the app handles massive numbers of deposits, and many features are still being added.

  • Relivr

    A delivery-as-a-service application for iOS and Android. The app used Firebase for data storage and authentication, Google Maps SDKs to show users places near them, and data we had stored as a means to allow users to select items from those stores. If items did not exist, the users could also enter items to be collected.

    This was a personal project I developed with my brother, hoping to launch a business in 2017. My primary involvement was developing the app, using Ionic Framework, Firebase, and TypeScript.

  • Bet UK App

    An app that uses a shared codebase with the other brands at LeoVegas and uses a CMS with theming to differentiate how the app looks compared to others. Bet UK is a more sports-focused application that has an integrated sportsbook and betting functionality.

    The app offers users a great place to place their bets, watch live streams, and play casino games— all while managing their accounts and gambling responsibly. Alongside the features, the shared project offers biometric sign-in, social login, and other integrations. It has a series of "predictor games," allowing customers to predict results and win prizes. These predictors have also been used by thousands of users across Cheltenham Premiership Rugby and Cheltenham Rugby.

    Bet UK is another one of the 12 iOS and 12 Andorid apps I developed at LeoVegas. I collaborated with a great designer at LeoVegas and another member of the apps team to make sure the app was perfect for our customers. It was built with React Native, has integrations for PayPal and Worldpay, uses a GraphQL back end, and is actively used by thousands of users per month.
