The students learn to complete user stories, create and test acceptance criteria and manage team budget and burndown using purpose-built dashboard software.

Open Source

I’m a keen open source contributor and try to regularly contribute to projects I use and admire. An example of projects I’ve contributed to:

24PullRequests - “Give little gifts of code for Christmas” encouraging participation in open source contributing and supporting the maintainers of some of the software many of us take for granted.

canned - File-based canned responses for JSON APIs. I’ve used this extensively for a project and have tried to return the favour with some contributions.

My website! - This site! Fully developed open source and published via Netlify.

Cornwall Ruby - The website for Cornwall Ruby, my recently-started Ruby Users Group here in Cornwall.
