About

I’m Stuart Jones, a web developer from Cardiff. I am currently living in London and working full time as an App Developer for Easyodds. In July 2015 I graduated from Cardiff University with a First Class Honours degree in Computer Science.

My main interests are web and mobile app development. Away from computers I enjoy travelling, having visited 45 countries including Australia, America and Egypt. In the summer of 2014 I went backpacking across Eastern Europe where I visited over 20 countries including Ukraine, Croatia, Poland and Estonia. Supporting both Cardiff City and Arsenal football teams is a passion of mine in conjunction with playing badminton and football at Cardiff University.
