Hello, I'm Dillon!
I'm a web developer based in Sheffield.
I previously studied Web Systems Design at Sheffield Hallam University and I now want to pursue professional web development as a career. I'm looking to find work at a company where I can continue to grow as a person and as a developer.
Book API is my most recent project built with the Laravel framework and makes use of the Laravel Passport package to provide a full OAuth2 server implementation.
It makes use of several Laravel features such as form requests, API resources and custom middleware.
It follows the JSON:API specification for building APIs in JSON and was built as a project to demonstrate my knowledge of RESTful APIs.
This is a personal project that I am currently working on that I embarked on for a mixture of fun, challenge and development of my skills.
It aims to be able to automate trading strategies on a sports exchange such as Smarkets.
Selenium is used to interact with Smarkets in the background which is then broadcasted to my frontend in realtime.
Using this realtime feed of data, my next steps are to implement the functionality to be able to partake in trades based on certain parameters and conditions.
This project isn't currently publicly hosted.
Software: Laravel, VueJS, jQuery, Bootstrap, MySQL, Selenium

A local business wanted a presence online so I built them a website to provide details of the services they offer and a point of contact.
The site is built to be fully responsive when viewed on any device.
The gallery features an image viewer which allows prospective customers to view prior work in closer detail.
