I attempt to keep pushing my knowledge about the industry, and I regularly give talks at Piksel and local development meetups to spread the knowledge. My most recent talk was exploring how to generate a GraphQL endpoint by using a Postgres schema. Previously I have talked about how to successfully practice Test Driven Development, using Functional Programming techniques in JS, creating Progressive Web Apps, and how to pair program.
York. March 2015 – present.
My current role is to develop a CMS for Video on Demand platforms. This is in latest React, but started as an Angular 1.5 app, which I helped rewrite. I am the main contributer to the open sourced SDK, which smooths over the inconsistencies of the APIs we create, giving clients a better development experience when integrating with our services.
Previously at Piksel I was a part of a team that developed a white-label VOD service to sell as a product. I created responsive websites, Android, iOS, and various television apps. I worked on the Backbone frontend, and used Cordova to help porting with platforms. I started working on reskinnning the apps for clients, but quickly moved to the core development team, working on both the backbone app and creating a React replacement.
