About Me

Style Guides, Components and Organisation.

In this talk I'll be looking at how we've put style guides and componenets together and how we've set about organising the platform to grow with the demands of the business.

Security as a Front-End Web Developer

Often website security is considered to be a problem for only backend developers to solve. This presentation looks at why this is not the case and how we can improve and be more aware of website security on the Front-End.

Do Some UX On It

In larger organisations introducing UX to the business and shifting the culture is a bit of a challenge. Here's an introduction to UX which I'm using to try and change the way people approach projects.
