The results page for Fshionable pulls in search results from a Clojure API and renders them with Angular.js. This application makes heavy use of a service orientated approach to allow separation of concerns in an otherwise potentially complex architecture.

About me

I'm a programmer from the UK, with a strong interest in functional languages like Clojure, Scala and Haskell. I currently work as a senior developer for the BBC and also run a software consultancy at Forward where we build products like Frequency.io.

My interests and skills are diverse, ranging from machine learning, product design, web apps, and web design. I have experience in a range of web frameworks including Play2 (Scala), Django and Ruby on Rails. If you're interested in working with me please feel free to drop me an email. I'm always happy to chat about your ideas. I tweet as @owainlewis, write code at Github and reply to email from owain[at]owainlewis.com.
