Any relevant updates on my work, this website, or general commentaries on life will go here.
I'm classed as a 'Microsoft Full Stack Developer'; with specialisations in Xamarin, AI and back-end development work.
Over a decade of experience in the IT industry
I have worked with a wide variety of clients from different industries as is the nature of the work that I do. I am a big believer in futurology and I think that the landscape of consumable AI and Machine learning services is going to lead to some ground-breaking industry changes in the near future. I fall under the term full-stack developer, but I personally subscribe to the T shaped model which comes from the idea that an individual can possess deep skills in a few areas as well as a broader range of shallower skills. I have been fortunate to work with some really interesting industries and business which has helped me broaden areas of certain tech stacks.
C#, .Net, .Net Core, ASP.Net, UWP, WPF, WinForms.
Working with micro-services in the Azure Cloud has been really interesting. Logic apps, Azure Functions, general cloud based architecture.
I've been working with Xamarin since before it was owned by Microsoft, it's come a long way and is my preferred method of developing cross-platform application.
Microsofts BotFramework, Decision, Vision, Speech, Search and Language APIs driven by AI and Machine Learning.
On a lighter note the animations were made using photoshop and pencil2d, I am by no means a designer but I have some experience with these tools and found it enjoyable to try and bring together the light and dark modes that the site uses with the use of animation.
The parallax images are also all photographs that I have taken, with that being somewhat of a hobby I wanted to incorporate it into the portfolio site as a reflection of my character. If you are viewing this on mobile unfortunately parallax sections are slightly less supported depending on your browser so they are disabled, feel free to check it out on a desktop.
Product Name: Cuda single page portfolio
Author: Adrian Paszul
Description: Single page portfolio site layout. It needed some re-work to be more mobile friendly (minor changes here and there), but the styling was perfect.
Description: Pencil2D is an easy, intuitive tool to make 2D hand-drawn animations. Pencil2D is open source and cross-platform. I used this to create the animated portfolio logo, it's pretty decent for a bit of open source tech.
Description: JQuery responsibe scrollable timeline, I used this for the certificate section, but I had to do some decent rework of the JQuery and It's still not quite how I like it. Great starting point through.
