Joel Oughton

My passion for computer science and software development ignited when I made my first website at seven years old using Weebly. I was amazed at the opportunities available and how technology could be used to make a difference to peoples lives, both now and in the future – in every aspect of our lives.

Since then, my enthusiasm for computing has ceased to waver. I used the Python TKinter GUI Toolkit to develop a series of mini desktop applications which simplify the admin tasks in our lives. By learning from YouTube and Python documentation, I have combined theory with practice to develop tangible solutions to day-to-day problems.

Thank you for spending the time to browse my portfolio and I hope you enjoy using my applications.
