Software and Data Consulting
Through Complex View I focus on React and React Native development, but with genuine full stack skills and experience.
The following kinds of projects would potentially be great fits:
- React Native projects. I have built over half a dozen React Native Apps, worked across both iOS and Android and (unlike most React Native developers) also have full native skills in Swift and Kotlin/Java (on both platforms I have worked on many fully native projects). If you want to build an App quickly but maintain high quality across iOS and Android get in touch.
- React based web apps. I have worked on many React front end projects, with technologies like Redux, RxJS, Jest, Flow and Typescript. I've also worked on the associated backends in both Node and Rails (this can greatly accelerate development). So if you want to build highly interactive web apps with amazing UX get in touch.
- iOS Swift and Android Kotlin apps. I have built many Apps on both platforms including both 2D and 3D graphics apps, conventional productivity apps, games and workplace apps.
Additionally I can provide
- Technology/architecture consulting. If your project is at a very early stage (or you are looking to make a MVP more stable and sustainable) and you are investigating options I can give balanced, objective guidance. Unlike many developers who have a single skill which they see as the solution to all problems, I can guide you through the trade offs and key advantages of alternative approaches.
- Training if you are looking to upskill an existing team on new technologies through workshops or coaching. In particular React, React Native and Data Science.
I've build dozens of Apps on the web, native iOS, native Android and with React Native. You can see a fuller (but still very incomplete!) list at my project site, but here are a few of the highlights.
With hundreds of thousands of downloads, featured by Google, CNET, Lifehacker and others; this productivity App will help you achieve your goals with its easy to follow, motivational method based on building up streaks of habits. For Android: Habit Streak on Google Play
I've recently rebuilt it using React Native for iOS: Habit Streak for iOS (the Android version should be out soon-ish).
