Programming

Nelson Wylie  About Me

My passion in life is creating digital products using pixels and code with the aim of providing the user with an engaging and rewarding experience. With my abilities of listening for key words and concepts from business owners I use my skills to organise information, create wireframes, help categorise sevices and set about building the design for the client. Keeping the core ideologies and overall principles of what the business offers and portray this in a convient acessable design for ease of use. Allowing the consumer to access information on the business products or services.

I have just finished a BSC honours degree in IT Creative Multimedia in LIT where I received a 2.1 Honour. Over the course of my degree I was exposed to a wide variety of programming languages and web technologies and now that I have graduated it is my intention to develop key skills further while also continuing to challenge myself by learning relevant new ones.
