It’s been a fair few months since an update so I’d share what has been going on in my domain.
I spent 6 weeks in June and July building an Android app for me alma mater, and it is finally available on the Android Marketplace. A great learning experience (layouts and style in XML and plenty of Java) but I’d have to say that I would be comfortable doing one again but I’d love to explore other options.
I’ve also moved backed to London after an incredible three years at University and was lucky enough to land a job at a great company in London called Forward. They have a great mentality and I have been pushed every day to learn something new, namely technique at table tennis on most days as my form is fluctuating (curses!). In terms of actual work it’s been mainly internal, but we launched a new version of the developer’s site at called Forward Technology complete with our own curated blog. I’ve used Ruby, Sass and Haml almost exclusively since I got (no more PHP for me) and even managed to write a post of my own post on responsive grid systems.
So its been a hectic couple of weeks, but I’m going to have some interesting points to write about over the coming months as I learn more so stay tuned.
