Built a Domain
Used Azure AD
I built a new domain for a school on new hardware. This new domain is linked to Azure AD for user syncronisation and auto sign in. OneDrive is synced and configured automatically for all staff.

This domain is the product of a lot of consultation with the school to ensure that the staff and pupils are getting the most they can out of the computers.

Automated deployment
Setup automatic releases of my utils library to build a publish to NPM from github actions.

This is why my utils library exists so I can test out things like this on something only I really use.

Built a React App
Built a GraphQL API
I designed, built, and deployed a new GraphQL API and React Application to manage the companies stock.

It pulls in customers, suppliers, quotes and purchase from Xero so we can track items through purchase, delivery, allocation and supply.

This gives us long term tracking of all items and stock levels.
