Welcome to Web Garden!
My name is David Conlisk and I am a freelance mobile app developer based in Glasgow, Scotland.
I have over 20 years of industry experience building websites and mobile apps for a variety of clients. I thrive in the fast-pasted agency environment, working with agile methodologies to tight deadlines.
Xamarin Forms. For the past number of years I have been using Xamarin Forms full-time for my clients. At the moment I am helping to create cross-platform apps for the medical industry with my client Clevermed Limited in Edinburgh.
C# and .NET - I am comfortable working on API design, implementation and integration. Anywhere you can use C#.
Flutter - I have recently been getting into Google Flutter which I really enjoy. I’ve released my first app using Flutter, the Bristol Stool Chart. It is completely free to use and fully open source. View the source code on github
Voice - I love building voice skills and I have experience building an award winning voice skill for Alexa and Google Home for a well known TV show. I also have a couple of skills active for Alexa, Daybreak Yoga and Tea Guide.
This was originally my first native iOS app built back in 2011 as a prototype for future medical app development. When it stopped working in 2015 due to an iOS update, I started to get emails from frustrated users, and I realised that a lot of people find it useful in managing their medical conditions. I then redeveloped it as a cross-platform (iOS and Android) app using Xamarin Forms and Grialkit. I have rebuilt the app once again in 2020 using Google Flutter. It has always been free, and now it is also 100% open source and available to view on github.
This is an app designed for users with memory impairments to help them in completing the activities of daily living. It uses speech and voice recognition to talk the user through the completion of a task if they are having trouble sequencing the steps required. It is being trialled with service users at the moment in Glasgow.
I’ve recently moved this website and the Bristol Stool Chart site from a creaky old Umbraco 4 instance to GitHub Pages. Using markdown with Jekyll and pre-built themes is just so easy! It’s free for one organisation site along with one site per repository. I highly recommend it.
