About myself

My name is Liguo Jiao a.k.a iceman201. 28 years old graduated from University of Canterbury, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. Living in Auckland, New Zealand. I’m an iOS developer with 5 years experience in Swift. I have been responsible for producing both technical and user interface designs. I have been contributed to ThunderMaps, Sidewinder and SCADAFarm iOS Application, and get involved with build up RefitPlaner iOS Application. Meanwhile, I'm also running an on-going self-project with couple of friends named Gymme Dairy and PokeCP iOS Application.


Mobile Application development is so much fun for me I love to design application, I prefer a clean and cute visual design, and also with useful & intentional interaction. I eager learn new things to extend the limit of my knowledge. Therefore, I am running the Swift New Zealand GitHub group to invite more Swift developers(worldwide) to do project together as a way to learn from each other.

RefitPlaner

2016 - 2017

McKay Ltd Project

Refit Planner is a mobile data collection App that allows vessel captains, owners and operators to gather information relating to maintenance, refit and repair work specification compilation. The mobile nature of the App allows members of the crew to utilise a tablet to answer questions about the various tasks at their location anywhere in the vessel. Pictures can be taken of the work site and related systems/equipment and edited in the App. All collated data will be simultaneously synchronised with the RefitPlanner website when connected.

The App has 2 stages; the first being a registration process, addition of vessel and contact details and the submission of a categorised work-list containing all known tasks for the upcoming refit, repair or maintenance work package. This work list is then submitted to MML for review of categorisation and allocation of a unique numbering system. Stage 2 follows this review where the work list tasks can be accessed individually within the App and a questionnaire completed to allow additional information and pictures relating to each task to be captured and uploaded, via the App, to the website. Further tasks can be added within the App at any time and anything new added will be synched with the website and will therefore allow dynamic update and review.
