legacy projects / stepping stones

These are projects I've developed and since moved on from.

LunchTable lunchtable.io · Android

Chat with anyone in the world without ever signing up. Ridiculously quick private chat.

anonymously or pseudonymously., and each conversation has a plain, shareable URL

I created this from the ground up, starting with a Node.js-based API with socket support. The web app was hacked together with jQuery, but lately I've changed my focus to mobile. Version 1.0 of the Android app is under development right now, to replace the alpha version currently on Google Play.

lunchtables lunchtables.io

A community platform focused on bringing like-minded people together in groups, instead of the classic broadcasting of messages to an impersonal audience.

Evolved into a real-time communication platform for strangers, friends, and colleagues, and has remained tailored towards groups.

Technologies: HTML5, CSS3, PHP, MySQL, jQuery, AJAX, Socket.IO, node.js

LunchTab.la lunchtab.la

Music-focused site, utilizing audio posted to LunchTables to create a simplified music player experience. When showcasing tracks from SoundCloud, LunchTab.la utilizes node.js to convert mp3 streams to ogg, in order to use native audio in ogg-supporting browsers.

Technologies: HTML5 Audio, CSS3, node.js

FlashStuf flashstuf.com

Legacy. An outlet for the fledgling Flash animator / game-maker. Grew into the host of more eclectic content, from TI-83 programs to various videos. It has a PHP/MySQL back-end and admin management which allows control over almost all aspects of the site.

Technologies: HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, Flash, ActionScript


previous clients

Radford University EMS www.radford.edu/ruems

In order to maintain the organization's URL using a school subdomain that only allows static HTML, a single HTML document was created to hold the site skeleton and navigation functionality. The public-facing HTML page makes AJAX calls to a script on a server running PHP, which fetches administrator-created pages from a MySQL database.

Dean J. Baer Artist deanjbaer.com

Created my own CMS called Easy Site Package, which allows the client to independently manage the site. Used as both a study in developing a CMS and, simultaneously, a real-life application. Developed using PHP, MySQL, Javascript, and AJAX.
