Hi, I'm Jack Lyons. I'm a Front End Developer from Gold Coast, Australia.
I build sleek, modern and responsive website solutions using React, Vue, TypeScript and GraphQL. My experience spans across Government, eCommerce, SaaS, Logistics, Real Estate and Enterprise Software. Contact me today for a free, no fuss consultation.
A selection of my latest projects
Here's the tech I love to work with:
My front end framework of choice is Vue.js. I love working with Vue as it allows me to write clean, powerful code and prototype fast! I'm also a big fan of Nuxt.js for building Server Side Redered applications.
I also enjoy working with React.js coupled with TypeScript. React is just as powerful as Vue, but it does involve more technical decision making and code co-ordination with other third party libraries. React is a great tool for building powerful, modern web apps and I especially love using React Hooks and Functional Components.
GraphQL with Apollo
Apollo is the industry-standard GraphQL implementation, providing the data graph layer that connects modern apps to the cloud. REST APIs are not a good fit for modern apps because they require large amounts of hard-to-manage data fetching code. With Apollo, components simply declare their data requirements using GraphQL and Apollo gets the right data to the right place!
WordPress & Headless CMS solutions
WordPress is by far the most popular platform for custom client websites. I also use it to build eCommerce websites too. However, it's bulky and slow, and easily hackable. A headless CMS is a back-end only content management system built as a content repository that makes content accessible via an API for display on any device.
