Carl Halliburton

Graduate in IT – Wellington
Bachelor Information Technology

I have completed a BIT from Wellington Institute of Technology, majoring in programming, but covering other areas such as database design and coding as well as UX/UI and testing with a smattering of management and business analysis experience. 

My proudest achievement was the completion of project with a team of three at 450 hour of work each to build and Android app from requirements to deployment.  App was called Ascend which is part of a film project called Woman of Influence with Opinion being done by Keith Hawk of Hawke Films. 

One of the interesting parts was neither of us had previously work or had any contact prior to forming but we managed to successfully complete it and deploy it to Google Play under the name Ascend – Woman of Influence as well as gaining an A+ grade.

I am passionate about accessibility, it is essential that all software and applications are accessible, for example I have a vision impairment which gives me personal experience with designing for the blind and vision impaired community.  I can help with accessible design, testing and optimizing for screen readers and magnifiers.
