These are in reverse-chronological order (newest to oldest).
Misc Smaller Projects
I do a handful of smaller things that aren’t worth making full repos or blogs for. Sometimes I’ll post about them, and try to list them all here:
- A python script to find the furthest location within a given area from a Dunkin Donuts
- A python script that emails all of the participants of a Murder Mystery party who is guilty and who is innocent, so that everyone can play without someone knowing secret identity of the murder! Keeps a record of the emails sent later. It’s useful for anything that needs to randomly and secretly assign roles to a group of people, without anyone knowing any one else’s role.
Visioning Texts is a data visualization tool for your conversations. It runs locally in your browser, giving you power over your information. It works with Signal, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger. You can extract your own data, and if you’re too busy to try it yourself, you can view an example image.
Forest is a procedurally-generated VR ‘game’ that a friend and I made for the Oculus Rift at HackRice 6 (original version). The working title was “No Man’s Forest”, and was just a chance for us to make a VR game, It ended up being a blast. However, since I don’t own a Rift, I had to port the game to Mac! It also builds on Linux (Ubuntu 16.04, feel free to open an issue if it doesn’t build on your machine).
For earlier hackathons, my teams and I made several android apps. They’re all a little old, so I don’t know if they build for versions of android newer than L.
- Pacer, an app that chooses music based on your running pace at the moment.
- Pandora’s Pantry, an app that gives you recipes you can make based off ingredients that you have in your refrigerator. The app was one of the finalists at HackRice 4 and our resulting business proposal based on the app idea won 2nd place at the 2015 Owl Open Startup Competition at Rice.
Just some neat web-based drawing demos written in Angular2 and Dart.
I used to be a volunteer photographer at BARC, the City of Houston animal shelter, and I gathered a ton of beautiful pictures of some gorgeous pups. Some of my favorites are below, and you can also view the entire collection.
Please please please, if you are living in the Houston area and are considering adopting a dog, go give the good pups at BARC a chance. Check them out!
