Greetings, I'm Shane.

I'm a mobile applications developer. I have over 11 years of professional Java experience, and over 7 years Android experience in professional and academic settings. I have extensive experience in Android application architecture and development, constructing and consuming RESTful web services, publishing and integrating SDKs, and Android native code integration.

I'm self motivated and have contributed to the full-lifecycle development of multiple large-scale projects. I've worked as a part of both on-site and remote teams, in all development roles from Developer to Architect and Principal Developer.

The EnviSensor Android App and Environmental Sensor Module Prototype were developed independently as part of a research and development project at The University of Edinburgh. The focus of the EnviSensor Project was to evaluate the feasability of a low-cost portable environmental sensor module paired with a mobile application to be utilized in data collection within participatory networks. Through the use of a platform such as EnviSensor, a much finer grained description of environmental factors data can be obtained for a given area.

System features:

  • Manual collection of environmental factors such as air quality, algae concentration, and water temperature with supporting photos.
  • Collection via Bluetooth pairing to sensor module prototype of environmental factors such as air quality, temperature, and humidity.
  • Background pairing of all collected data with location and time data, and transmission to a remote server for evaluation and persistant storage.
