Lawrence Pickford



Cross Platform Mobile Developer


I’m a Software Developer from Liverpool, UK, currently living in Porto, Portugal, making apps and coding professionally since 2014. Generally I code in the day, then do some training in the evenings with Capoeira, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Climbing.

What’s my experience?

I started out with native Android/Java development while I was still in University and have worked in small startups/studios since then. I’ve worked on apps for various clients, and have switched languages/frameworks a few times depending on my roles in any given company. So far I have work as (in order):

- Native Android/Java
- Xamarin/C# Cross Platform Mobile for Android/iOS/UWP
- Spring Boot/Java Back End
- Flutter/Dart Cross Platform Mobile for Android/iOS/Web

What’s this blog about?

This is just a place for me to put my thoughts, experiences, any code I want to share or anything I build which I think may be helpful to other people. This could be in code, exercise, or other aspects of my life.
