Some highlights from the various projects I've worked on over the years

Showing django projects

RockTome

RockTome is designed to be a full featured distribution and showcasing platform for independent musicians and labels, allowing them to publish their work easily across multiple digital platforms. It includes integration with echonest for up to date artist metrics.

Behind the scenes it also makes use of django-rest to provide an API which is then made available to a number of analytic and data processing packages.

Mindfull and BeatBullying

BeatBullying was an international charity organisation which operating two services (Mindfull and BeatBullying) aimed at reducing bullying and offering online counselling and mentoring services to young people. During my time working with them I contributed heavily towards improving their award winning web platform which was built primarily using Django.

NeoNotes

NeoNotes was a simplistic web application which allows the easy creation and sharing of virtual sticky notes. It started out life as a proof of concept, but quickly grew into a useful application which I used in-house for some time to store and share developer notes and code snippets with clients. It featured an early example of social network integration including signup and sign in support from Facebook, Twitter, Google and LinkedIn, with the ability to easily share notes on those platforms. The site also included a mobile version designed for smaller screens.

Flickathon

I was tasked with assisting the team at Flickathon in finishing the initial beta development of their unique social movie website. The site integrates tightly with Facebook and allows users to recommend (and get recommended) film marathons to watch based on their preferences. It was a great app to work on, and a lot of fun!

Dooster

I was contracted as the primary developer on Dooster.net, one of the leading cloud based project management applications. Initially I was tasked with picking up where the previous developers left off, completing and bug fixing the work and getting the product production ready. After it's official launch I provided adhoc development work on new features and maintenance for a number of years.

It’s absolutely packed full of features including gantt charts, Google syncing, time tracking and much much more, it’s a must for anyone who want’s to stay organised!
