volunteer profile

Pacific Standard Time

I've been developing software for thirty years, everything from real time embedded systems through to Android apps and web applications. You can learn more about me at my LinkedIn profile at https://www.linkedin.com/in/robert-thomas-82297515/

For web apps, I work with Java on the back end, with Angular 2/4 and Bootstrap, or JSF for the client. Sorry, no Ruby or Python!

I spent two very rewarding months last spring at the refugee camp on Samos, with Samos Volunteers (also on Facebook). Since my return, I've developed a simple application for managing their lending library. It's a responsive Angular web app hosted on Google App Engine, with Google Datastore for the database. It's a great free platform for low volume applications.

I live in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia.
