Pool Ball Tracker
A fun side project at GoCardless to track pool balls with a GoPro camera. More information in the write-up.

A simple, free “lights-out” puzzle game released to the android market.
This was my first Android app and my attempt at learning Android development by creating a very simple game.
The objective of the game is to turn out all the lights. Pushing a light toggles that light and four surrounding ones. The levels are randomly generated each time and gradually increase in difficulty. You must complete a level within a certain number of moves or you lose a life.
Written in Java with the Android SDK.
I was the tenth hire at this YCombinator-backed, London-based payments startup. I mostly worked as a back-end Rails developer with a short stay in dev-ops using Chef. I worked at GoCardless for one and a half years.
My achievements include introducing an authorisation server for a more service-oriented architecture and writing the back end and migrating customers to a new and improved dashboard.
