Hi, My name is
A front end web developer.
I have a passion for creating innovative pieces of tech for the web. This passion began when I enrolled on a college course covering 18 different units of IT. Web development was one of them! That was back in 2010 and ever since starting my career in 2013, I'm still excited by each day when I can get stuck in on the latest technologies on the front end.
he technologies I have been using recently that I want to continue working with are:
- React/ Next.js
As a hobby and to diversify my tech, I'm also learning how to create web games, ustilising a HTML canvas and websocket technology.
A little hub put together with a collection of some of the tools I use daily to make my developmenent cycle more efficent.
- Searchable through text input
- Filterable with checkboxes
More to come..
More projects to come! I'm currently working on a few sites, which include a remake of a bands website, this is so I can work on Next.js 13 to learn the new routing methods.
- Band website remake
- Stream calendar clasher and planner
- Football team data viewer
