Throught the years our toolbox has grown and now includes technology such as PHP, NodeJS, Bootstrap, Websockets, and others. Each technology allows for a different approach to a problem, and I have even used R (stats language) to generate a static CSS ruleset for a webapp.
Web based applications have been the current trend, and leveraging realtime communication through web sockets makes you feel like you were using a desktop application.
There was a lot of data to link in this analysis. I started by grouping similar subreddits and used Tableau for my intitial exploratory analysis. For the author's age I wanted to show the author's age at the time of submission, so I made a calculated field that returned the difference in the date of the author and the date of the submission.
Comparing polical subreddits needed context, which is why the grouping of all other subreddits and subreddits that commonly have throwaway accounts were needed. [read more...]
Created this from the 2011-2013 ODOT data because someone was complaining about cyclists not paying the gas tax where they lived (Portland). Taking into account the damage (1/9,600 the damage of a car, and roads cost a pretty penny to repair) and that many cyclists have cars if not at least a license, (89%) it became clear that cyclists have been subsidizing motorists in Portland.

Data comes from the 2012 Minneapolis ALPR data inside the date range August 30th to November 29th. For readability's sake any coordinates with fewer than 5 pings were removed. Circumfrences increase starting at 51 pings, red is 100 pings, and overlaps are from coordinates very close to each other. The overlap is prevelant in the bottom right with the values 100+80+76+54+9 = 319. I plan on doing a traditional heatmap as well using Google Maps to interactively explore if there is enough interest.
Technologies Used: PHP, NodeJS, Express, Socket.IO, jQuery, and MYSQL
Built a realtime web-based multiplayer version of connect four with chat. Users are automatically sent to a new game minimizing unncessessary user interactions.
Playlist builder which creates a filterable track listing from BandCamp albums. Users can drag and drop tracks as well as filter by sub-genres and specific artists.
Minimal web application written in a night for my girlfriend. She mentioned there weren't any simple, aesthetically pleasing pollen tracking applications out there.
Web development for Phoenician Engineering and custum reporting tools that hook into their cart.
Written mostly out of curiousity of how much it actually costs in fuel for me to fly.
Created a pizza tracker that delivers SMS notifications on a pizza's status. Works with Pizza Luce and Domino's (Domino's blocked the IP though).
