Over the years I’ve specialised in designing and constructing front end applications, that is websites and mobile apps for iPhone and Android. More specifically the type of apps that I’ve specialised in are bespoke dashboards that add insights and convenience for the customers & employees of a company.

Vaki Aquaculture Systems Ltd. (acquired by Pentair AES) is the industry leader in fish counting and size estimation of live fish. Vaki offers a variety of solutions but the one I worked on was the Biomass Daily system. The gist of it is this: you are a company that operates fish farms. On each farm there are multiple sea cages with salmon. You rent hardware frames from Vaki and lower them into the sea cages. As the salmon swim through the frames their weight is estimated. This data is then aggregated and analysed in various dashboards.

This project was about creating an auxiliary mobile app to monitor the status of the hardware frames that run 24/7 capturing size estimations. Before this app, users would check the current hardware status on a PC. With an app the process became more convenient for the site managers, who are often on the move.

Access is restricted to users of the Biomass Daily system. The system has been in daily active use by Vaki's customers and employees since its launch in 2015.
This was the project that sparked my interest in frontend development. A very small 1-2 week project I worked on back in 2010 for Já.is, the official phonebook registry of Iceland. Super simple OSX Widget and Windows Gadget dashboard tools, obsolete today as operating systems have dropped support. You would start typing some name and it would drop down an autocomplete menu of possible results. Once enter was pressed it would redirect to the ja.is website.
This was one of the most fun projects I worked on. I didn't know it at the time but this project planted a seed that would eventually lead me to specialising in dashboards as a career.
