An experienced software engineer with a knack for solving client's needs.
Highlight include building enterprise software at GitLab while working remote from exotic locations, co-founding AirSorted (now Houst), and giving a presentation to rocket scientists.
Along the way I've built games, startups and numerous websites (too many to include here).
Check out some things I've learnt at https://jameslearnt.com.
I've submitted patches to a wide range of open source projects, made forks of some that others have found useful and started some small scale projects myself.
I also have several hundred contributions to GitLab where I worked for 4 years.
The below are projects I've either started myself or made significant forks of.
Album Art for your Movies!
Wrote a C# tool to decorate folders with movie posters and IMDB ratings.
A Chrome extension to add an IMDB rating link to Wikipedia movie articles. Fetches ratings from OMDBapi.com if the page has IMDB as an 'External Link'.
I wanted to try out web-components, so got started with dart and implemented Cascade. It's a direct port of my first ever java GUI project, which was in turn a port of PSION cascade aka SameGame
As an excuse to continue learning AngularJs, I built a Salary Converter. I wanted to focus on keeping the interface simple by hiding all options within a natural sentence, and removing options when they get in the way.
My first website where I learned my craft, back when GeoCities was the cool new thing and picking a web framework was Frames vs Tables.
My first game, of many. Written in Macromedia Flash when I was around 11, oh the nostalgia
This is why I know I'm not a natural-born designer 😂
The companion website to our winning entry to a Mars lander competition.
Complete with VRML models and a spin-off game: Mission Husky
