About Hughes WD
Hughes WD is the sum of my work. This site has links to some of my past projects as well as links to all of my social media locations and an easy way to send me business related requests. My education is in software development and information management and that has continued to be my focus. I have an extensive background working with people and solving problems as well as a very logical mind so becoming a developer was a very easy choice to make. Since I was young I’ve always been a problem solver and I have my parents and grandmother to thank for that. As I grew older I found that I love to learn. Now education is a continuing passion of mine, and I plan on continuing mine for the rest of my life. Of course none of this would be possible if it wasn’t for the support of the closest people to me.
Some of my Work
My Burrito Finder
This is my favorite project up to this point and seeing how much people like it truly reaffirms my passion for writing software. Check out what Time, Gizmodo, Mental_Floss, Metro, Life Hacker, Food and Wine, and many more had to say about the project
Gifferent is my second production app that was completely written in Kotlin. It offers users random .gif images based on randomly generated words and allows users to share or save the images they find. This has been an amazing project to work on and has kept me passionate about the Android platform.
I created a full web experience for the team over at Graveyard Tattoos after I was approached by the lead artist Angie Sanchez and asked to bring them into the modern age. This was a very fun and fulfilling project for me. Projects like this one keep me excited for what is to come.
Foodie Monster started as the rewrite of My Burrito Finder but quickly spun up onto its own project. The app brings the power of Google maps together with Yelp and provides an easy to use interface the quickly finds the user restaurants based on their preferences.
Mt. Hood CC
Mount Hood Community College was the foundation for my education. The advising team allowed me to basically construct my degree around application development and computer science. But more than that MHCC gave me the knowledge, skills and confidence to go out and obtain my dreams. My college education has changed my life and I have the team at MHCC to thank for that
What about all of this awesome design? Of course there’s no way I could have pulled this off on my own. I needed the help of a good friend for that, one who knows a lot more about photography than I do. So I contacted Reese Blanke over at Fire Optic for most of my desktop images and some great design ideas. Anyone who loves the images and logo of this site should click this image and check him out.
