Having worked in the public sector for over nine years, I specialise in the development of accessible and responsive web applications.
I developed a custom Alexa skill that enables users to find out what country is represented by the code featured in the blue section on the left of a European vehicle registration plate. I used the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) to create an Alexa-Hosted skill using Node.js. I created a custom intent and integrated Alexa Presentation Language (APL) by adopting the responsive AlexaDetail template using JSON. The aim of the project was to provide information to the drivers of vehicles with Alexa. Ascertaining feedback and continuous enhancements resulted in European Plate being published to the Alexa Skills Store.
Dangerous Goods Driver Training
As part of the re-development of SQA web applications to adhere to The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018, I developed a boilerplate to maintain continuity and reduce development time. The boilerplate was utilised to re-develop five SQA web applications, including Dangerous Goods Driver Training. The aim of the project was to ensure that the content was Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust (POUR). Continuous enhancements to the boilerplate and team collaboration resulted in Dangerous Goods Driver Training conforming to WCAG 2.1 Level AA.
Leeanne Lyden Photography
As my first non-academic project, I developed a simple web application, specialising in photography. I used WordPress to develop the web application. Here, I developed a custom child theme using the Twenty Twelve theme and developed a number of custom page templates to provide structural variation. The aim of the project was to highlight the work of the photographer. The successful planning, development and evaluation of the project resulted in the photographer gaining more recognition.
