Skills

Web Development

I’ve been teaching myself how to make websites for the last 5 years. In the meantime I’ve become familiar with the three technologies which make up the World Wide Web as it is now. HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Over time I’ve built a number of projects involving web technology. You can see some of them on my personal GitHub profile.

Some of the projects I’m working on in my free time are Beetroot, a social gathering-focused media player where guests can request songs from a library, and wwwserve, a quick little HTTP server for static website testing.

Work Experience

Device Repairs Wellington (2016)

I have designed and developed the website and administration console for Device Repairs Wellington.

The website was written in HTML, PHP, CSS and JavaScript, using the Bootstrap 3 framework. The backend was made to be a lightweight CMS and CRM for contact requests. The website is currently live at http://devicerepairs.co.nz/.

This job started the port of a quiz management interface from a Windows Forms desktop application to a web-based interface using ASP.NET.
