Hello! My name is Rory Williams Doyle and I am a first year CPSSD student at Dublin City University. I have created this website to aid you in getting to know me and my technical skill set better. Hopefully, after seeing what my skills can bring to your company, you will reach out and give me an opportunity to demonstrate my abilities in person.
For my second year college project I am working with a team of three others to create an online e-commerce platform we call UniShop. My role in this project is focused on backend development. I created the database schema which we use to store our website data. I am the sole person responsible for the development of our REST API. I use NodeJS for the development of the backend and I use the Mocha testing framework for unit testing. I am also responsible for the smooth running of our project on a AWS server and have also held the role of scrum master in our project, as we use agile development in our work. Our sprints last 3 weeks and are intense, but I have loved every moment working on this project.
The Twitter_Bot project is a small open source project that I started during December 2016. The idea behind the project came from an assignment I had to submit as part of a team for college. However, after much deliberation, I decided to create my own version of the project from scratch. This piece of software is capable of managing a Twitter account automatically once it is given the right permissions. The benefit of this for a potential user of the software is that you are able to run and manage a public twitter page without any human overhead. It was a lot of fun to make and it really helped expand my knowledge of working with API's.
My work at CoderDojo involved teaching kids, from between the ages 6 to 16, how to write software. When starting out, my role primarily involved teaching kids the basics of Scratch, the drag and drop programming language. However, for some of the more advanced students, I branched out and taught them the basics of Python, which is my programming language of choice.
