The best falling blocks game in the world (admittedly, I may be a bit biased). Continuously under re-revision and release pending.
This project started as a reaction to the frustration I felt while studying computer science in college. As a student, I developed a handful of interesting projects, but there was a wide chasm between the toys I made that ran in my development environment and something I could package and distribute to my friends and the world-at-large for general use. I resolved to write the “best falling blocks game in the world” to learn the skills to bridge that chasm without realizing quite the scope of the project.
This is a place where I get to demand that everything be my-definition-of-perfect without having to answer to anyone else. I imagine I’ve thrown away as much code as I’ve kept. I only work on it for a month or two every year, but it’s one of my true loves.
One day I will release version 1.0 for the rest of the world to enjoy, but I’m not in a big rush (as the nearly 10 year development period indicates).Despite the lack of an official release, I believe this project is responsible for driving my programming abilities way forward. It has allowed me to learn a wide variety of programming disciplines, and how to incorporate them all together in one project. As I have the luxury of being the sole developer of this project, I imagine it allowed me to develop some bad habits as well, like sparse commenting and an over-emphasis on code harmony.
- Close Encounters Games
- This is a small business that I run with a partner. We sell Collectible Card Games, board games, dungeons and dragons, Warhammer 40k, etc., and host gaming tournaments every day. I bought it in the beginning of 2014, and it’s really fun to manage (although incredibly time consuming). You can also check out our facebook page if you want to learn more about it.
- Nova Games
- My second gaming store. This website was designed by Alyse from seasik design. You can also check out our facebook page if you want to learn more about it.
- Dharā Dhamma Website
- I developed and maintain this website for the Dharā Dhamma meditation center on a volunteer in conjunction with three other talented volunteer programmers.
- I was very fortunate to have their experience and tutelage guiding the project. I think the four of us are very happy with the end result, i know I am (although, you will have to be an old student in that tradition to view the entire site).
- Accidental Seabirds Website
- This is a project for my good friends’s band. I did the coding and Jesse Lee and I collaborated on the design. Development on this project was rapid and I like the style we achieved.
- The New Bard’s Handbook
- I got a little crazy in the summer of 2015 and did a ton of research on the Bard class in Dungeons and Dragons 3.5. This is a compilation of all the stuff I learned. If you’re making a 3.5 bard, this should be a big help to you.
- My Music
- I occasionally write and record songs. When I do, if I like them, I put them on my soundcloud page. I record in pro-tools through an M-Audio Profire 2626 interface. I play piano and guitar, which I’ll often record direct. The other instruments are typically midi controlled.
- Law Office Website
- My office’s website. Development on this project was very rapid, and done between my other duties at the firm. WordPress is the back-end here as well. If I had a lot of time to continue development on this project, there are some bells-and-whistles I’d like to add, but on the whole I am content with the result.
- I really enjoy small-scale carpentry (although I don’t do very much of it lately). There are a few simple pieces I have made for around the house (a chess-table, a shoe rack, and a book shelf), which I’ll eventually take pictures of and post here.
- There are a number of other small programming projects I’ve put together or contributed to, which you can find on my github page.
