Sony Ericsson P800 Smartphone

Writing new code and understanding, developing, bug fixing and optimising existing code was required.

Worked on the Telephony, Messaging and Calendar applications of the world's first ever smartphone the Ericsson R380. Development was in C++ for Symbian OS (ER5u). Work involved writing GUIs and interfacing with mobile phone driver software that was being developed in parallel to the application. Writing new code and understanding, developing, bug fixing and optimising existing code was required. Also a member of the R380 tiger team setup during the latter stage of the R380 project to solve some showstopper problems.

DEAPTEQ Time Analysis

Responsible for the implementation of an MS Windows client component called “Time Analysis” for Baker Hughes Inteq Inc. The primary function of this component was to aid the time/cost planning process of drilling oil wells for BP Amoco using statistical analysis of historical and current drill log data. Development involved porting an existing C/X-Windows/Sybase module to a new Visual C++/MFC/Windows 95/NT/ADO based system. The component interfaced with a new proprietary three-tier OO API called “DEAPTEQ” and used COM, ADO and MFC. The DEAPTEQ system, including the Time Analysis component, went live replacing BP Amoco’s existing “DEAP” system shortly before the contract finished.

Period: 1998-1999. Trading as Spider Developments Ltd.

2Patient (free)

2Patient is a free game of solitaire for two players also known as Chinese Patience.  The object of the game is to be the first player to get rid of all their cards.  During play you move cards into stacks like traditional solitaire and then play them out sequentially by suit.  You can also move cards to your opponent's card pile if the sequence is valid, i.e. same card value, e.g. a 10 of hearts on a 10 of clubs, or same suit and next value up or down, e.g. 8 of hearts on a 9 of hearts or a king of diamonds on a queen of diamonds.

You can play 2Patient against either your computer or another person and there are downloads available for both Windows and Sony Ericsson P800/P900 mobile phones.
