Other Projects

This is a compilation of early projects I created while learning the ropes of web development. The technologies used are primarily Ruby on Rails and JavaScript.

Modulo Oblongata (Old Site)

Before migrating my website to its current iteration on WordPress, Modulo Oblongata was built with Ruby on Rails. It uses Markup (Redcarpet Gem),  syntax highlighting (Pygments.rb), a comment system with the Disqus API, Friendly_id for slugging and permalinks, Devise for user auth, the Sendgrid API for contact, and pagination with the Will_Paginate gem.

Bombastq

One of my first projects, Bombastq is a lightweight Software as a Service (SaaS) application that allows for additional services for paid users. It makes use of the Bootstrap framework, Sendgrid, and the Stripe API for payment processing. This is merely a demo website and not intended for production use.

Twitter Clone

Twitter Clone is a fully functional 'clone' of Twitter based on Michael Hartl's book "Ruby on Rails Tutorial: Learn Web Development with Rails." User authentication is built from scratch. Once signed up, a user can create their own "microposts" and upload images through CarrierWave (hosted via Amazon Web Services S3). They can also follow other users and gain followers of their own.

Weather Application

This Weather Application is a simple JavaScript application that queries the Weather Underground API to pinpoint the user's current location and output the weather. Hosted on CodePen. Created for Free Code Camp.

Twitch.TV Streams

This Twitch.TV application uses AJAX and JSONP to query the Twitch.TV API and return the status of certain users from within an array. Users can be sorted using JQuery's "hide" and "show" feature. Hosted on CodePen. Created for Free Code Camp.
