ETH Student Profile
I quickly threw together this customized personal profile in less than a day. The design was inspired by about.me, although I implemented it independently. Good chance to experiment with some of the new CSS3 features.
Bite-sized bits of inspiration. Each time the page is loaded, one motivational quote, phrase, poem, video, image, or link is displayed.
I created this site for myself. It can be easy to lose motivation, especially when working alone or working from home. By setting MiniMotivation.com as my homepage, I am given a tiny motivational reminder every time I open a new tab in my browser (which I do hundreds of times each day).
I hope that other people will find this as useful as I do.
DevCheatSheet.com is a cheat sheet and quick reference card directory. It provides one central location to find any cheat sheet that a developer might need by aggregating all technical cheat sheets from around the web.
I created this website on my own from conception to design to implementation. It is built with Python and Django. Part of the reason for this was to learn a new programming language (one of my goals for the year) and also to expand my skill set. This was my first time working with Django and I've loved it.
DevCheatSheet.com is hosted on Web Faction.
Mud and Chocolate Trail Run
Created this simple website for a new trail run in Washington that is going to be put on by NRG Running. I designed and developed a custom Wordpress theme for this site, and I also designed the logo. I chose to use Wordpress for this project, even though it is a static site and not a blog, because of the great admin interface. This allows non-technical users to easily edit the content without relying on me (or another programmer) to make those updates.
Web Template Generator
Currently being developed.
The idea is to have an easy way to generate the basic skeleton of any web design project. This is not intended to be a full WYSIWYG editor, but rather as an aid to help jump-start web dev projects. Allows user to quickly create well-formatted, valid layouts and stylesheets using a number of common techniques and best practices.
Designed and built this site from scratch for my sister-in-law Nina who is a running coach in the Seattle, Washington area. The design was finalized through an iterative process in collaboration with Nina. This is a relatively basic website, consisting mostly of static HTML pages. However, I did get to use some new web development techniques such as css image replacement and css image sprites.
If you live near Seattle and like to run (or want to start running), be sure to check out Nina's Running Group!
This project merges several RSS and ATOM feeds into one master feed for all of my online activities. There are some existing products and companies out there that do this, but I wanted to do a custom implementation that I could have complete control over. I use SimplePie to parse the feeds then I archive them locally for both performance and longevity (keeping the data around after it has been removed from the original feeds). Some additional processing is done to group photo and bookmark feed items by date. This helps to keep the master feed manageable and easy to read, as well as preventing certain feeds from dominating the lifestream. Also, the feed item titles are updated into a uniform format.
The initial version of my lifestream is now live, but I hope to make several improvements to it very soon. Read more »
