Portfolio

I love to create things. This page showcases the work I’ve done. I’ve created applications, books, open source projects, and more.

Web Applications

I've created several web applications using various programming languages and technologies.

CodeCaster

CodeCaster teacher interface

Codecaster provides teachers with a way to interact with students in the classroom or remotely by sharing code and collecting feedback. Teachers can push their code out to students and students can ask for private help. An integrated chat allows conversations to take place during lessons. Teachers can also live-broadcast code to student machines.

Amelius

Amelius interface

Amelius guides curriculum and subject matter experts through the course construction process. Define competencies for your courses, align lessons and items to competencies, and creaet your course content using Markdown so you can use it anywhere.  Share content with others, and even share your course publicly.

Rendera

Rendera interface

Rendera helps you learn HTML5, CSS, ES6, Sass, and CoffeeScript. It ships with basic examples and lets you try out your own code. You can save your code or share a private hyperlink with others.

Open Source Software

I work on open-source projects to help better the software development community.  I have contributed to the Ruby on Rails framework and the Phoenix framework, as well as several other projects. In addition, I maintain these open-source projects:

node-livereload

I am the current maintainer of the node-livereload library. node-livereload provides a server for reloading CSS and HTML in the browser.

QEDProxy

When developing front-end apps, you need an API. But that API might not support CORS. That means you have to write your own proxy and serve your app from the same server as your proxy. QEDproxy can serve your client-side app and let you proxy requests to a remote endpoint. Directory listing is supported, and index.html is a default filename.

Rubynew

Project generator for Ruby projects, similar to Elixir's built-in Mix task. Generates tests and a binary stub too.

QEDserver

QEDServer provides an API for you to test your client-side code against. Run the server and immediately have a products and categories API you can send JSON or XML requests to update, delete, insert, and retrieve records from this API in your Angular, Ember, React, or even Elm code.

Short-Attention-Span Docbook

Short-Attention-Span Docbook is a docbook build chain for OSX, Linux, and Windows. Contains everything you need to get started as an author as long as you have Java and Ruby installed.  Default XSLT stylesheets are included, as are command line tasks used to create PDFs. No complex setup processes required.
