I have worked for Vinyl Matt Media
since 2008, making software for hotel marketing and online booking. I implemented a booking engine. I implemented a successful database content management system for hotel websites. This system includes a suite of website widgets for display of image galleries, menus, google maps, crossfaded image panels, multilingual text for international guests, a special offers widget with live information and prices from the booking engine, and local weather. I also implemented a system for gift vouchers and a loyalty club for collecting and redeeming points when guests book through our system.
I have implemented a PHP library for rapidly producing forms and reports for database applications.
I build virtual Linux servers for hosting applications and sites, and have implemented backup and site monitoring software.
I was a student at University College Dublin for 11 years studying science and computer science. I was awarded BSc, MSc and PhD
degrees, and won first place in my final exams. Between the MSc and PhD I worked as an e-commerce developer with New World Commerce. There I was responsible for implementing all of the code that drives the very successful Pigsback.com
Please look around my website. You can read about my PhD thesis. There is also a page of assorted articles.
