The Music Messenger
Contract Lead iOS Engineer
September - October 2015
I was contracted to lead the iOS team which involved integrating sharing via Twitter/Facebook and converting the layout of the application to AutoLayout. I also implemented a Snapchat-style content creation screen to translate, rotate and scale text on top of an image. This required the need to create a method for turning the text and background image into a single image file - all of which was done with Core Graphics. The app was then deployed to the App Store.
Converting sketches into realistic mobile and web prototypes.

I co-lead the iOS team, helping to maintain and upgrade the integrity of their current code-base while implementing new features simultaneously. This included implementing lazy-loading custom UICollectionViewCells, a custom slide-out “side bar menu” and a myriad of bug-fixes.

Project Manager & Engineer
June - August 2014
Hailed the “Trip Advisor for Schools”, I was the iOS and project lead of School Report, responsible for designing and developing the application from scratch. This required me to interact with Edubase - a government sponsored organisation for school data, as well as parse the information of over 27k schools into a manageable and readable format for the application.
I made use of a concurrent Core Data stack which would sync with Parse to store favourites and reviews as the app tended towards a social network.
