This is a summary of how I pulled travel data from across the internet built a travel site with it in two months.
I’ve been building a new pet project that lets engineers find remote jobs. I share a little bit more about it in this post.

Bedrock is a quick way to start an Express app with nice defaults without having to worry about setup and configuration. It’s free, open-source and MIT licensed.

A quick little NodeJS app that makes it easy for me to check cricket game timings, and watch live games. Check it out. Rationale Going on popular cricket sites like Cricinfo just to check what time the next game was starting to get annoying. Game times on those sites are hidden away and require multiple clicks […]

We’re launching Lift today so that all businesses can take advantage of technology to increase their bottom line. UI Design, Web/Mobile Development, and consulting. No bull, just great work. Check us out.
Some shots of a native iPad app that I have been making. I finished designing most of it, and have implemented the screens below. More details coming soon.

Peekaboo is an iOS app that lets you find out more about people around you. It accomplishes this by using facial detection and recognition. Simply snap a picture and Peekaboo tries to find out who the people in it are.
A look into my final year design project, and some of the tools and architectures used to create it.
