Whilst freelancing, the bulk of my work consisted of custom-made WordPress websites and plugins with a sprinkle of various static websites and a full-stack Ruby on Rails project. All website designs were built following responsive design principles and passed the WCAG 2.0 (Level AA) accessibility tests.

However, the CodeClan Professional Software Development course really opened my horizons and I have since been working on a variety of side projects, solo or in collaboration, using mainly React, Vuejs and Java. A few are still on the pipeline, so watch out for new ideas coming up!

Here's a selection with links and a brief technical description:
