This is the portfolio of Tom Jenkins, freelance web developer based in Manchester. I bet he promised you coffee and cake. Good luck; he hasn't fed me in years. In return, I haunt his conscience daily and force him to work on socially responsible website and mobile app projects. Strange karma, but there you go. Besides, he enjoys it.
Yours, The Raven
I create websites & mobile apps. Here are some of my latest.
I wanted to share the message of the power of the luxury of a couple of weeks free from the demands of clients, money, and reality in general. I didn't lock myself away in a log cabin somewhere; I used the same office I do every day. It was just that freedom to experiment and work at a different pace that allowed me to quickly crack a nut I'd long been hammering away at.
Element queries allow you to write layout rules for components that react to the size of the component's root element, rather than the viewport, meaning you can create components that are truly reusable and can be placed anywhere in a page's layout and "just work".
You may have heard a lot about the new Web Speech API, currently only implemented in Chrome. It's likely to be most useful as a voice controller for HTML5 apps, but I can see it adding a dimension to games too, and wanted to play about with it a little and create something fun. If you know your Tolkien it'll be a cinch, but in case your Elvish is a little rusty, I'm sure you can find a translator online somewhere...
