Projects

I have a keen interest in innovation and always strive to bring imagination to reality. Over the past few years i have been actively seeking new projects to create and work on.

Solar Returns (2022 - Present)

I am currently collaborating with a Engineering Masters student from UCD to create a solar calculations app named Solar Returns. This app accepts parameters from the end user to determine the monitary payback from installing solar pannels to a home after a period of 25 years.

Prontotyper (2022)

Recently, I developed an Object Detection model which recognises and predicts hand drawn images of web elements in conjunction with a React.js frontend and REST API to serve the prediction model and generate appropriate code for the user to be able to use in real time. The algorithm then generates appropriate HTML code for the user to use and edit in real time. The tool uses two Azure storage solutions (Blobs & Cosmos DB with mongoose schema) in addition to Azure cognitive services.

Self-Made (2021 - 2022)

I worked and cooperated alongside a class colleague to design and develop a webbased application within the Homestead environment using Laravel PHP Framework. The application was intended for use by job seekers and employers within the start-up sector. The application also included a Andriod companion app which was coded with Kotlin to allow users to view job listings on the move.

I also have many other projects which are still in the initial phases of development.

GitHub

I have been commiting my work to GitHub via the GIT BASH terminal since 2019. My profile includes each of my completed projects, assignments and their corresponding code.
