Li Chinese Takeaway

This is my part time job at a local Chinese takeaway. I work there every Saturday from 4:30PM to 9:00PM. My job there is to take orders in the shop and over the phone, and also to hand the orders out/organize deliveries. This job requires good communication skills and ability to cope under pressure when it is busy. I feel that I have developed these characteristics through my 3 years of work there.

I volunteer at my church youth group helping out with the Audio Visual systems whenever necessary, and this has allowed me to develop my understanding of computer systems in another different environment.

Assistant Researcher

Heriot-Watt University

In the summer of 2011 I was selected to do a 6 week project at Heriot-Watt University in the Chemical and Process Engineering Department. I designed and set up a control system to regulate the biomass level in a cell suspension. I had to learn an entirely different GUI based programming language, LabVIEW, and write code to control the hardware to run the system.  This experience taught me further the interaction between software and hardware, and how great a part computing plays in the field of science as I saw the versatility of programming to tackle real life problems. Separately from the computing aspects I gained an insight into university learning. For the majority of the project I was left by myself to research and understand the equipment and methods, and I had to motivate myself in order to complete it.

Balerno High School

In addition to studying at Balerno, I have also been elected the Head Boy for the school year 2011/12. Through my duties, such as organizing meetings to writing and delivering speeches, I am developing valuable leadership qualities including good time management as I also have to study for 3 subjects. I believe this post reflects my responsibility, reliability and confidence in meeting the expectations of many.

Skills

Skills

Web Development in PHP/MySQL

For my Advanced Higher computing project I decided to create an on-line order taking service for a small takeaway company. In order to achieve this I learned how to develop in PHP and MySQL. Pictures and an example of the system can be seen in my portfolio.

Programming in Java

I began learning to program in Java in my 3rd year of high school in Standard Grade computing. I have developed this by continuing to create programs and write Java code through Higher and Advanced Higher computing. Additionally I have also been developing outside of school and have worked on projects such as text games and network chat programs written in Java.
