Dan Purdy is a London-based frontend developer. He graduated from the University of Huddersfield with a degree in music technology and audio systems and then worked as a technical engineer at a top London recording studio, where he helped maintain their vast array of equipment and provided technical assistance on a variety of projects. During this time, he developed and built several web applications to centralize and digitize many of the studios' processes, while also experimenting with Raspberry Pi. He developed several standalone applications and games, ranging from kiosk-style displays and take counters to aid assistants and clients to a barcode reading microphone logging system. Projects are documented, along with tutorials, on his blog at
