Coursework

Software Engineering Large Practical – Score – 98.5%
I built an android application called ‘Songle’ where users walk around the Edinburgh campus and collect markers corresponding to song lyrics – they then attempt to guess the song. The specification required that some additional bonus features were added on top of fulfilling the basic game functionality. I added over 10 bonus features the most interesting of which being ‘VS’ and ‘Co-op’ Multiplayer game modes.

I received the following feedback:

“This is an exemplary submission
which goes considerably beyond the bounds of the practical to provide a very impressive
and professional app. Congratulations on your achievement.”

Personal

I’ve completed my own android app, LostPets, to  roughly mark locations where pets have gone missing and provide the user with a notification if they are near one of these locations. Changelist. Blog Posts.


I’m also working on a second project, when I can’t work on LostPets, in Python that periodically checks when a Facebook friend is active. Progress report on the way.
