Hello, I'm Dave. I'm a software engineer based in the north west of England, and I rather enjoy writing code. I work in a software house based in Manchester, and use my freetime to learn new langauges and develop mobile applications across a variety of domains. I also enjoy running, reading, and talking science.
Pulser is an audible heart rate monitor, connecting directly to your Bluetooth (BLE) device to provide you constant updates as to how hard you are pushing your heart. Know when you are at your peak, and know when you can give that little bit extra and set a new personal record. Hear your heart, and reach your training goals.
Pulser was created after noticing that some activity trackers failed to provide realtime audible data on the users heart rate, even though it was being tracked. Pulser is written natively in Swift, and integrates seamlesly with activity trackers to achieve the best of both worlds.
Pulser is an open source project allowing users to contribute and add in the features which they desire.
Created to the clients specification, the UniSentials app allows door staff to verify e-tickets purchased for UniSentials events. The app authenticates users via Facebook, and also connects directly to the UniSentials API in order to securely verify the e-ticket. The UniSentials iPhone app was created using the ionic framework.
Alongside developing applications, I enjoy learning about science. As an extension to this, I started the blog Layman's Science in order to provide myself with an avenue for learning about science, and also a platform for which I can write about science and engage in discussions with the community.
My skills cover a variety of languages across multiple domains, including mobile and website development. Further to this, I have strong technical and analytical skills, which I apply to the task at hand to ensure the task is completed to the highest standard.
