FoodSmarter

My final year project at the University of Sussex. FoodSmarter is a web application designed for mobile aiming to aid in the reduction of domestic food wastage for young professionals. Using a Google Firebase real-time database alongside a vanilla HTML, CSS and JS front-end to visualise user's food stocks and suggest efficient food recipes using the Yummly API to avoid food waste.


Locate A Mate

My team's award winning submission for HackSussex 2018. A service aiming to connect shy users with drinking partners using localised chatrooms. Managing a small team of 5 to create this webapp within 24 hours using geolocation, Twilio's web-chat API and Node.JS to win the 'Best User Experience' award.

Mixologist

Originally a prototype submitted for my third year module 'Technology Enhanced Learning Environments' at the University of Sussex, this mixology learning-platform concept was further developed to be useable on the bar as a webapp. Using the Web Speech API alongside a self-made RESTful drink monitoring API to measure and promote the accuracy of user's mixology skills, displayed using Bootstrap and vanilla JS.
