I'm currently in my 4th year of Computer Science in DIT, majoring in Enterprise Systems Development. I have a keen interest in Data Analysis and Natural Language Generation. I am currently working on a final year project which will be a system for operational reporting in a target driven work environment. I’m also currently holding the position of Treasurer in DIT’s DJ Society, where I look after a budget of over €8,000 as well as various other responsibilities. I have a passion for music, both creating my own and performing as a DJ. This year I’m also participating in the LEAD module in DIT which aims to recognise and award credit to the important learning that takes place outside the confines of formal academic study, in particular the personal and professional skills developed by undertaking a leadership role over a sustained period of time. I maintain a personal blog where I write about various interests of mine including mindfulness, spirituality and music. I also write articles whenever I come across new or interesting technology or applications of existing technology. When I finish my degree, I will be looking for work in the field of Software Development but I also have intentions to travel before settling into a career.
An e-Learning tool for teaching computer science students the basic concepts of arrays, linked lists and pointers. This project was developed in Python using the Flask framework. The system sits on top of a MongoDB NoSQL database which is hosted on MongoHQ. The web application itself is hosted on Heroku and can be seen in action here.
A tool built to scrape fault data from Eircom's web based fault tracking system for analysis and faster processing. Using Excel VBA and it's internet controls, I was able to fully automate the once manual task of checking each fault for processing. You can read further about my experience with this on my blog.
A 2D shooter in which the player must fight wave upon wave of increasingly difficult enemies at sea. I developed this game as part of an OO Programming module in second year with a team of 3 of my classmates. We used the XNA framework for C#.
