My Name is Scott.
I am a 23-year-old Graduate Software Developer from Dublin, Ireland based in Stadthagen, Germany.
I am proud to have achieved First Class Honours (1:1) in my
BSc(Hons) in Creative Computing degree from Dun Laoghaire Institute
of Art, Design, and Technology in Dublin. Additionally, I received
glowing verbal commendation from my course tutor for the exceptional
quality of my Capstone Project and Thesis.
Programming is a massive passion of mine. I'm always eager to learn
new programming concepts and feel deeply fulfilled when my code
successfully solves a problem. I am all about solving real-world
problems with technology. I strive to learn and grow. I thrive in
fast-paced environments and am always eager to take on new
challenges. I'm always fully immersed in the task, and my passion
for programming shines through in my work.
I have a particular interest in Backend & Full Stack Development. I
taught myself to create a Computer Vision model utilising Microsoft
Azures Cognitive services. I made a scalable and efficient algorithm
hosted on a REST API server. This API runs a recognition function
that generates code from an image of a hand-drawn wireframe uploaded
and stored in Azure Storage Containers. The generated code is
viewable to the end-user on the React.js front. This application
includes the creations of multiple database solutions and models in
order for the data to be stored.
I have broad skillset and knowledge base of programming languages &
technologies. I am also a quick learner and often spend my spare
time keeping up to date with any new features or updates.
libraries such as React.js and Express.js
Azure: Self-taught to suit the demands of capstone project;
Utilized cognitive services, storage blobs, API, and web hosting
NPM: Installed packages and libraries using NPM; Explored
documentation incorporate to projects
HTML: 5+ years’ experience studying + coding HTML along with
CSS as core elements of my college course
PHP: Experience working within the Homestead environment
running on Linux VM; Developed an API and web app using Laravel; The
application could then be consumed by an Android client device;
Back-end for the application connected to a hosted SQL database that
served the client
SQL: Gained knowledge of SQL data queries as part of
continuous database studies and practical work
Also experienced in other programming languages & frameworks such
as: Vue; Java; Kotlin; Python
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)
Currently, I am proudly partnering with a Engineering Masters
student from UCD to tackle the development of an innovative
and groundbreaking solar calculations application: Solar Returns.
This app boasts of its ability to accurately determine the
significant monetary returns to be accrued by homeowners who opt to
install solar panels in their homes - over a considerable period of
Recently, I undertook a project where I developed an Object
Detection model. The purpose of this model was to recognise and
predict hand drawn images of web elements. To accomplish this, I
made use of a React.js frontend and REST API. This enabled me to
serve the prediction model and generate the necessary code for the
user to employ in real time.
As the user interfaced with the model, it generated appropriate HTML
code which the user could edit and use or implement in real time. In
order to enhance the model's effectiveness, I used two Azure storage
solutions. This involved making use of both Blobs and Cosmos DB with
Lastly, to refine the model's ability to accurately predict and
recognise web elements, I made use of Azure cognitive services. By
doing so, I was able to ensure that the model was highly accurate in
its predictions and easy to use for the end user.

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.
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.
