Older work and experience

One Click Orgs (2010 to 2011)

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.

York Students in Schools (January 2009 to February 2010)

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.

Web developer, Nouse (2008 to 2009) and Web designer, YSTV (2009 to 2011)

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.

Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (2005)

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.
