I'm a software developer at Scott Logic focusing primarily on JavaScript development, particularly with React. Recently, I've also taken an interest in mobile development.

I joined the company after studying Mechanical Engineering at Bath and Computer Science (MSc) at Bristol. The fantastic learning opportunities at Scott Logic are one of the main reasons I joined, and as a result I'm currently learning functional programming (F#) in between projects.

A few weeks ago the new Bristol Pound mobile app was launched, allowing users of this local currency to find vendors, view transactions and make payments on both iOS and Android. This post describes our experience of writing this application using React Native.
