Some of my previous projects (including this website) are available on my GitHub profile.


Dissertation

I completed my dissertation project in May 2019. The project was designed to derive multiple apps from a single codebase, and evaluate the development lifecycle.

I decided to use React & React Native, which allowed me to pull a web app and Android/iOS apps from the same code. The project was a success, and I graduated with a 2:1 in Software Engineering.

More details are available on request.

Karen Coulson's Website

I have re-designed Karen Coulson's personal website, showcasing her art. I used Bootstrap for the basic layout and made some minor modifications using Sass (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets) in a node project. PHP was used to ensure Karen could easily update her featured art and gallery pages.

This has replaced Karen's old website and is viewable here.
