Just Scan

Laravel Framework

web site

Just scan is a project I am currently doing as my final year project. It is a web application in which customers can order in a restaurant using their mobile device.

This project is a working in progress. The technology driving this application is Laravel PHP MVC framework and other several PHP and Laravel libraries. One of the issues I have encountered while building this application was creating a QR Code library which works on a web application and to resolved this, I created the user interface as a mobile app instead using Cordova and a few Cordova plugging available to speed up the development process.

Kohana is configure to work with Oracle 10g database has it is the database engine behind this website.

skill matrix apex image

Skill Matrix

Oracle Apex

Skill Matrix is one of the Leeds Beckett University apex applications which enable their developers and team manager to put down all their skills making it easy to allocate developers to the right projects as well as creating the prefect team for any projects which the department might do.

I had to create a PL/SQL procedure which executes when a button is clicked. The purpose of this is to print out all the developers skills into a spreadsheet format making it easier for the users to know the developers skill language in certain areas, whether they need training to improve any skills and if a developer shows any interests in other areas, they might train them.

cat project website image

Cat project

Oracle Apex

Cat project is a Leeds Beckett University oracle database system which enables lecturers to write reviews in a special Microsoft words format and then upload it to a database. Before the information is saved it is decoded and allocated to the right columns then stored in a schema (1). The information can then be reviewed in apex to make sure that it contains the right data before it is then transfer to a different schema (2).

Schema 1 is flexible and doesn’t have much validation as schema 2. This means that some data type in schema 1 might not be the same as schema 2, this is one of the main reasons why this information is checked before getting transfer to schema 2.

My role was to add a JQuery inline validation which runs every time a field is clicked and unclicked. JQuery validation process then calls a procedure which checks schema 2 database table column data type based on the apex field name to make sure that the data will fix that columns and if not, the reviewer will get an error message display informing them the right amount of characters which that column can take.

web site

Data capture is one of Leeds Beckett University systems which enable the allocating of rooms to events, lectures as well as giving department staffs access to various systems which are linked to this system.

This was an existing systems and needed quite a few changes and functionalities added to it. The client requirement was to make it easier to add rooms and staffs to the records as well as delete rooms and staffs, sort rooms in other of room describing as well as change staff access levels. I had to make minor changes to the database table to make it easier to make the client requirements.

aperture car hire website image

Aperture Car hire


web site

This incredible fully secure car rental site was developed by 4 other student developers including myself. We had only a few weeks to implement this site from scratch, implement a payment gateway which valid all payment details as well as meeting the client deadline. The site had to enable customers to find their ideal car in seconds and making full payment and all this had to be less than 2-3 minutes. The main goal was to save the customer time because we know time is valuable.

My role was to write the booking script, script for available cars as well as the script for the page which displays all cars. One of the most important part of the project was to make sure we have a way to prevent cross booking, what this mean is if two or more customers was to try and book the same car at the same time and only one type of that car was available we will then be able to provide the car to the first customer which complete the booking and then prove alternatives to the others.

The site is aimed at customers in Leeds and had various pick up and drop off points located around the city. Car owners could register their cars to be rent out and will be responsible of dropping and picking up their cars.
