About

Hey! My name is Stuart Jones, a JavaScript developer and travelling enthusiast from Cardiff. The purpose of this website is to tell you a little bit about myself and showcase my projects.

At the moment I am working full time as a Front End Engineer at Homelyfe in London, helping build an insurance app in React and React Native. Before moving to London, I attended Cardiff University graduating with a First Class Honours degree in Computer Science.

My main passion is JavaScript, specialising in web and mobile app development. I also enjoy learning new technologies, most recently React, Progressive Web Apps and Accelerated Mobile Pages. Away from computers I love exploring new places, having visited 47 countries. My last trip included Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Moscow, Minsk, Kiev and Chernobyl.
