About Me

Hello! My name is Dylan, I enjoy designing, coding & shipping digital experiences. My interest in web development started back in 2017 when I decided to try building my first WordPress website.

Fast-forward to today. I've had the privilege of working at a start-up, a digital agency, and as a freelancer. My main focus these days is building accessible, inclusive products and digital experiences at FirstView for a variety of clients.

I also recently started my side project. A headless eCommerce API. That covers everything you need to rapidly build eCommerce experiences with your front-end of choice, focusing on the African market.

I also enjoy Technical writing and have published a few articleshere

My Experience

  • Write modern, performant, and robust code for a diverse array of client and internal projects.
  • Work with a variety of different languages, frameworks, and content management systems such as JavaScript, Vue, Nuxt, PHP, Strapi, Capacitor, TailwindCSS, Wordpress etc.
  • Communicate and collaborate with multi-disciplinary teams of engineers, designers, management & Project Managers on a daily basis.

Projects I've Built

Headless eCommerce API

I am building a Headless eCommerce API with a focus on the African market. Its NodeJs Express based API, with MongoDB and Redis. Currently its still a Work in Progress

NodeJS, Express, MongoDB, NuxtJs, CapacitorJS, PayStack

Kids Education App Concept

The client approached me with the idea of creating an app to teach kids to learn in multiple languages. The app allows parents to sign up via email or social, add & manage their kids, choose the preferred language for each kids profile. Kids can then browse different eBooks and learn different topics in their primary and additional language. Payments are handled by PayStack and the Front-end was built with NuxtJS. The backend API was built with NodeJS, Express & MongoDB. Unfortunately the Client abandoned the product after completion and all source code is under NDA. If you would love to know more please contact me directly.

NextJs, Wordpress, Apollo, GraphQl, MaterialUI

WorldOfRugby

After the business needed a better alternative to using wordpress themes I Engineered and maintained major features of WorldOfRugby's customer-facing eCommerce app using ES6, Material UI, NextJS, GraphQl, Apollo, Strapi & Wordpress API.
