Scott Carey 

BSc [Hons] Creative Computing

I am a hard working 22-year-old individual with a great passion for Web, API and Software Development. From a very young age I have always striven to understand how things work. I approach any challenge presented to me with a positive attitude and keen eye for thinking outside the box to figure out the best and most elegant solution. I work well as an individual or as part of a team and I'm a friendly and outgoing individual and commit to high productivity and quality in everything that I do.

Project Description

Very few people see themselves programming but this application allows anyone to start coding. Inputs from rough-drawn paper or soft copy images are converted to a working website in seconds. However, by also including an IDE (Integrated Development Environment), the application provides the raw programming code that an experienced developer can use as a baseline for further development e.g. a more advanced website or integration into an existing application or project.

Implementation + Technologies

This project required a number of different areas of expertise and provided a rich learning opportunity to acquire skills relevant to today’s digital and multimedia world. The main focus has been on learning and using Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services, Storage Blob system, and new CosmosDB database. It incorporates all of these new technologies into integrated JavaScript back and front-ends.
All the technologies used were learned outside of current course scope. By including these technologies and also increasing understanding on use of React.js, Express.js and NodeJS, bringing the conceptual design to life has been a very rewarding learning experience on software research, design, and implementation.
It has also given me great insight into working Agile project management methodology. I feel that I have extended my software development competencies right across this project.
