I attended the Hull School of Art and Design Degree Show last night. The work on show was really impressive! lots of interesting and very practical projects on display.
This post is a quick review on some of the work I got to see some of the work wasn't finished but that didn't matter as what was being shown was very impressive.
Charlies Kennel Kitchen by Samantha Foston
An interesting project, aimed at children to teach them to cook using an interactive application. Through each step instructions are provided for equipment's and supplies in order to make the recipe. The interactive elements and creative use of imagery makes it fun and engaging.

Webrepo by Jack Keenan
Webrepo is all about sharing useful resources amongst the community. The backend of this site is coded in Laravel 4 and the frontend is coded in Foundation 5.
I was very impressed with this project you can browse and share code snippets, guides (mini tutorials) and share useful links with others and keep track of latests news from up to 5 different sites by using their RSS feed.
Bass Fishing UK by Chris Metcalf
"For my final major project I decided to build a website that would bring together all the information a bass angler would need for a days fishing around the U.K. coastline.
The website features a five day weather forecast, live webcam feeds, tutorials, equipment reviews and a competition which not only help to care for the environment it also offers some nice prizes too."

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.
In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.
Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
