I was awarded a scholarship to attend Apple's annual developer conference in San Francisco. The requirement was to make an app in Swift for any Apple Platform, demonstrating creative use of available technologies. This year I submitted my new app, Sunscreen, which demonstrates integration with Apple's HealthKit, Safari View Controller, push notifications and more.
I was awarded a Silver Award on ASL's Special Thanks And Recognition (S.T.A.R.) Scheme 'for the quick development of Acronym Finder' - an internal tool which allows employees to search through a crowd-sourced list of over 17,000 acronyms used within Amadeus, including airline/airport IATA codes, ICAO codes and general acronyms.
Following on from achieving my bronze and silver DofE awards, I worked on my Gold award for a significant amount of time. For my group expedition, we decided to challenge ourselves by choosing a particularly intensive route, we spent three days doing each of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, followed by a longer, but less inclined hike on our fourth and final day.
I was awarded a scholarship by Apple to attend their annual developer conference (WWDC) in San Francisco this June. The scholarship requirement was to make an app in Swift for iOS. The source code for my app can be found on GitHub.
