Hello, I am Ashley.

I am a Software Engineer.

Say Hello  

About Me

I am a software engineer from Australia, with a passion for hand crafting applications that enable clients to do what they do best.

I believe in designing and developing software that enriches users' lives and enables them to engage in awesome experiences, whether that be on desktop or mobile.

I solve real world problems through the application of software engineering processes and am working my way through the last year of a Bachelor degree with 5 years' experience in web and software development.

I enjoy learning academic computer science concepts and software engineering processes as well as developing skills through University projects and developing applications for clients.

You can find some of my projects on GitHub.

Feel free to contact me, if you are interested in working together or networking.

Projects

I have recently developed the first iteration of sleek, a Reusable Learning Object generator that will allow users to author unique learning objects on the fly, while being cost effective- saving the client thousands of dollars.

I have also recently built a few web applications with Laravel and Vue.js, including Elite Forum and Salon Pricing.

Elite Forum is a project that I initiated, to further my front and back-end development skills. Containing all expected forum functionality, including an @mention implementation and private messaging system, the project was successful and provided many hours of development experience.

Salon Pricing was an app that I created when I was contracted by a Beauty Salon to create an elegant pricing system to rely on for internal client services. Incorporating a complex data structure, using Fractal, the project was a success and has since been open-sourced.

Another noteworthy application I have recently developed is an extensive data entry application for a sporting club, replacing the administrator's large and difficult tasks with a beautiful and elegant solution. The application simplifies the administrator's daily duties, allowing them to import, collect, query and export crucial data needed throughout the season with ease. Team coaches duties are also simplified via the implementation of reactive JavaScript components for team data entry views.
