Hello, my name is James
I'm a Web & Mobile developer based in Brighton, UK.
I intend to write up some of these projects a little more in the future, but in the meantime here’s just a handful of some of the projects I've been working on:
Now Playing on BBC 6 Music
Realtime photo/bio/lastfm/spotify info on whatever is playing on BBC 6Music. I built a backend aggregator to poll Last.fm, Spotify etc. which provides a JSON endpoint. Presented in a responsively designed wall of tracks that can be flipped over to read more on the artist. Tech used: PHP, Pagespeed, HTML5, Responsive design, CSS3 Transitions & Animations, Social buttons.
