Employing the latest web technologies, specifically React and Firebase, I designed and developed a mock estate-agency website that provides users with an intuitive and interactive experience. The website is designed with full CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) capabilities, which enables users to create profiles, login, and add or edit house listings for sale or rent. Additionally, the website allows users to upload images of properties and facilitates communication between landlords through an email-based messaging system. By leveraging React and Firebase, I was able to develop a responsive and dynamic website that offers a seamless user experience. The use of React allowed for efficient rendering of components and ensured that the website is highly performant, while Firebase provided a secure and scalable backend solution. Overall, this project represents an innovative and well-executed approach to developing a functional and user-friendly estate-agency website that is equipped with advanced features and capabilities.

With a focus on user experience, the application features a form for easy employee detail entry, an automatically updating table that lists employee information, and a pie chart that visually represents the total number of cakes by size. The table is sorted in ascending order by cake delivery date, ensuring a clear and organized overview of upcoming celebrations. In addition to its functional and visually appealing design, the application is built using cutting-edge technologies such as Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and the Chart.js library, ensuring a reliable and robust solution for your company's employee birthday tracking needs.

He also has great communication skills and can adapt quickly to any new challenges."

"I have had the pleasure working with Jack on three separate occasions. when we first met in Recruitment, he showed me the ropes and I have him to thank for alot of the skills I have today. it has been great watching Jack progress and develop his skills. Working with him at Formulate really showed off his ability to adapt to and learn development skills that would take most months. He is never afraid to jump in the deep end and get stuck in and his communication and relationships skills have always kept clients and customers satisfied! Overall Jack is a dynamic worker, with an analytical mindset. But, equally as important, he is very empathetic, understanding and a fantastic friend and family man."
