Pebble
Pebble Apps and Watchfaces

PebblePoints

PebblePoints was an app I developed for the Pebble Smartwatch with a team of 4 during the Austin Spark League summer camp. I really enjoyed going through the whole development process: brainstorming, designing, Q&A / research, brainstorming, programming, and finally presenting our product. PebblePoints is an app conveniently located on your wrist used for game scorekeeping and dice rolling. You can roll any number of sided die, and you can keep score for up to 6 players. The app we presented pretty closely represented what we originally planned on creating, and I'd say it was a success.

Slack Messenger

During Austin Spark League, (a summer camp dedicated to teaching kids about the world of startups and getting to dive into product development processes), we used Slack as a method of communication away from face to face. I decided to combine the two technologies we were using, the Pebble Smartwatch and Slack, into a little test app. Inside of this messenger app, you could select a base message to send to a predetermined channel. This could range from "I'm running late!" to "Hi there, this was sent from a Pebble!" I used an HTTP GET request sent to Slack's web API to send the messages. I think it was sort of an inspirational thing for some of the other members in our afternoon coding sessions to produce bigger and better applications.

Minecraft
Mostly Bukkit Plugins

BorderPrice

BorderPrice was a plugin that hooked into WorldBorder and allowed the server to collectively expand the border of the world by donating ores they had mined, such as diamond. It was never released publicly, and was developed for a server that was never released.

BukkitDonger

BukkitDonger was created to "assist" the administration of my sister's minecraft server. It allowed any player to type /dong and display a "Raise your dongers!" message. The plugin also allowed players to get or give fake OP to other players.

Other Games
Probably Garry's Mod

S.M.E.E.G.

I don't remember what S.M.E.E.G. means. I was developing a gamemode for Garry's mod that was aiming to be a combination of Call of Duty's Nazi Zombies, and the RDM fun from DarkRP. I had added a mystery box item, and allowed players to buy weapons off of the wall. This project died abruptly as I burnt myself out of Garry's mod, yet again.

Lorem Dong

Right?

Anything Else
Probably not Garry's Mod

Local YouTube Playlists

I had the problem where I wanted to be able to quickly download my music from a youtube playlist, or, more importantly, the music discovery site plug.dj. But, after discovery it was incredibly difficult to export existing playlists from plug.dj, I settled for just YouTube. I set off to make it so I could download YouTube videos... but that quickly changed. I ended up crafting together an embedded video viewer, custom playlist selection and creation, and custom video controls. I should continue this project...

Soundcloud Downloads Automated

There's quite a few resources online for downloading individual songs from Soundcloud or YouTube, but I really wanted to automate this process. I developed a script that would use some API to download the soundcloud songs if you entered their ID. Originally I had planned to couple this with a web interface to remotely play songs from a mobile device on the go. Not too sure why, because there's an app for that.
