Next up for our Team Spotlight is another of our software engineers – Stewart Fullerton.
Who are you?
I am Stewart Fullerton
What is your role at Linknode and how long have you been working here?
I’ve been working as a Mobile Development Engineer at Linknode for nearly 4 years. I specialise in building Android and Windows Phone apps as well as developing commercial websites. I work in a team of 5 developers on Linknode’s products like VentusAR, Album Flow, HistoryLens, MyStory and 3DTry.it. I am also responsible in building and maintaining the company’s websites, a few examples are ventusar.com, historylens.co.uk and urbanplanar.com.
What are the technologies that you use?
At Linknode we make the most of cutting edge technology in software development, the piece of software that we use frequently is Xamarin, which allows you to create IOS and Android apps using C#, part of Microsofts .NET Framework. Other technologies that we use are SignalR, WCF, MonoGame, Google Cardboard, MVC, Azure , Jquery and many others.
What is your proudest moment in Linknode?
I think my proudest moment came in 2013 where our main product VentusAR was at its prototype stage and we focused more on consumer apps. I was responsible for the development of Album Flow, an app that allows you to browse your music using a flow of album art. The Windows 8 version was submitted to a contest it was placed in the top 10 apps and we won prizes as a result.
How has Linknode helped you in your career development?
Before I joined Linknode I came from a web background, already fluent in web development, database design etc so I was looking for a job within that industry. I was however very intrigued by developing mobile apps as I felt that smartphones and tablets were the way of the future. 4 years later I have new commercial experience in developing apps and I also get the opportunity to use my old skills in web development.
What do you do when you are not working?
I am a keen music photographer which I have been doing for almost a decade now, I work for many music publications covering concerts from all over Scotland. If I’m not doing that I’m either chilling in the flat or out with friends.
Any random facts you could share with us?
Cows drink milk……… oh wait….
What’s the last joke you recall?
Two fish are in a tank, and one says to the other “How on earth do you drive this thing?
