Hi, my name is Scott. I’m a developer who builds things for the web. My other interests include hardware hacking and travel.
I work at Colony where I get to work with some great people and cool tech! When I’m not on the job, I love exploring the countryside and spreading the gospel of “dumb hacks”.
Ethpollo: interact with Ethereum contracts using GraphQL. Handles data encoding/decoding on the client, developed in my spare time.
Notable Past Projects
Taxicoin: a decentralised protocol for ride-sharing apps. Uses the Ethereum platform and functions without the need for any central authority. Originally my University final-year project.
Don’t Laugh: this was a hackathon project created at OxfordHack 2016. Players sit around a beer bottle with a camera and makeshift rubber-band gun mounted on it. If a player laughs or smiles, they are shot.
Web3: Actually using Ethereum: aiming to bring down the hype a little bit, explain what Ethereum is and go a little bit into what we can do with it — BrumJS November 2017 and WM-JUG May 2018.
(Not) Selling Out: a rant disguised as a talk, discussing hackathon sponsorship and staying true to the hacker ethos — Hackcon EU III (video).
