The PDF copy of my CV contains my most recent experience.
One Click Orgs is an online service to help groups with their legal, decision making and membership structure. I regularly worked over IRC and in person with other volunteer developers, committing Ruby on Rails, Haml and Sass code to the OCO GitHub repository.
I was involved with the York Students in Schools placement scheme, spending half a day each week at a local school to assist the teacher with activities and any computing issues or questions. I feel that the placement was useful in many respects, primarily because it greatly improved my explanatory and presentation skills.
At university I became very involved with media societies, including the student newspaper Nouse and the television station YSTV. Redeveloping the newspaper’s website was invaluable experience for working in a team, reinforcing obvious good practices such as detailed code commenting. YSTV has offered similar experiences, though there what I found most useful were the weekly “station meetings”, where I was able to give opinions and be part of a group that makes decisions about the future of the station.
I completed the award while at school, which included volunteering locally and improving my knowledge of Microsoft Office through completion of the advanced-level European Computer Driving License. The expedition showed us how to work together as a team, both in the planning and undertaking.
