Hi there! I'm Ben Robinson,

Student, software engineer

and tech enthusiast.

About Me

I’m a student learning software development for Apple’s platforms, the web and the server. I enjoy a challenge and love exploring new frameworks, languages and technologies.

In 2021 and 2022, I was named a winner of Apple’s annual Swift Student Challenge and was lucky enough to present my app to Tim Cook and other top Apple management. I've also been featured in an Apple EU article on learning to code.

Since then, I have also become an AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner having demonstrated my understanding of cloud computing and its applications.

Explore some of the projects I have worked on below.
