Matthew Bullock

Web Developer


Passionate, with strong communication skills and a challenging innovative approach to my work I have quickly established myself as a professional Full Stack Developer.  I have demonstrated that I'm a patient and sincere individual who enjoys contributing to the growth of my colleagues and employer. These personal attributes have been rewarded with delegated responsibilities of leadership on key projects and individual ownership of important tasks . I have proven ability to deliver objectives on time and of the highest standard.

Committed to my profession I'm eager to grow and develop as a forward thinking Full Stack Developer and use these personal goals to the benefit of clients and the organisation I work for.

I am currently a contractor for Samdog Design Limited. My role here includes creating features and fixing bugs for clients. During my time here, I have been entrusted with the responsibilities of a team leader on a significant and complex project. This required me to collaborate with clients, establish their requirements and ensure the workflow and project deliverables were met.

PikaDish is a meal planning app where you input or select your week's recipes, and it will give you a detailed shopping list which you can then print or view on mobile.

A registered user can add recipes to the application and edit grocery lists. Now one person can do the planning and the other can do the shopping!

My responsibilities included the Front-End structuring and design and converting the website to an android app using PhoneGap.

Devalacious is a meal ordering app for parties at EDA. We used an HTML scraping tool to retrieve AROY THAI restaurant’s menu items. Students could then choose their desired meal, and assign it to their GitHub username. GitHub API was used to access the students name and other details.

My responsibilities included the front end design, consuming Github’s API and the backend database design.

Connect Four


  • HTML, CSS, Javascript


I embarked on this project to try and test whether I could build a fully functional connect four game, using only pure Javascript with no frameworks. The task was completed within 2 days, and is viewable on my portfolio.
