I like building things people can use, creating something from “nothing” and solving puzzles and problems. Who wouldn’t want to be a detective looking for impossible to find bugs and always learning something new? It’s rewarding and challenging and that’s why I love it!

A few projects I’ve worked on:
DCMN Analytics Tool 2016 - Present
Offline (TV) and Online (Mobile) analytics service.
PHP (Zend Framework) for the RESTFUL API.

Python Jobs Ireland 2015 - Present
A jobs board for Python, the programmming language, exclusive to Ireland. It was built using Django and it is deployed to Heroku through Travis CI.
- I have collaborated in a team of three, another developer and a designer, writing backend code, unit testing and documentation.
During the Pycon Ireland 2015 Sprints we had a few external pull requests.
A School Management Information System, a multi tenant web application, written in a custom PHP framework. Running on Apache, MySQL for database and Git for version control.
It is a complete student tracking, reporting and information management. A different instance is deployed for each school.
I have delivered multiple features and improvements for backend, frontend and infrastructure. I’ve added Capistrano to automate the deployments to each of or all instances. Implemented various API integrations for file sharing, such as Dropbox and Google Drive, and information synchronisation with Active Directory and MSSQL databases, as well as the integration with Schoolbag.
Created XML and XSLT templates for school reports.
I migrated our instances to Azure and managed them. I added monitorisation and automatisation.
Ansible recipe written for automatisation of Classis.
I implemented it with Vagrant to improve the efficiency of the development process.
I delivered the Ansible recipe for Classis to deploy complete instances of Classis in minutes. Includes server configuration and a demo Classis application.
Classis API 2016
- I built it to act as a router to many different databases, to be able to fetch data from the different Classis instances. Fabric is used for its deployment. It proved to be challenge for me at the time.
A School Parent Portal written in PHP using the ELGG framework.
Schoolbag 2014 - 2016
An e-diary application for teachers, students and parents built using Phalcon PHP.
I delivered the Office 365 integration, synchronisation with the directory and authentication, adding Schoolbag to Azure Marketplace.
I have implemented various other API integrations (REST and SOAP) from data providers such as: Classis, Advanced Learning, VSWare, LDAP and Active Directory.
I also collaborated with the Schoolbag team fixing bugs in the backend and frontend.
