Side Projects

I think that working on side-projects are an excellent way to keep up with technologies. All the extra hours of practice, outside of work stuff makes a difference. What are you working on today?

This page is a list of some of my public side projects.

You can find more in my public GitHub profile

Spoonbill

Spoonbill is a static web site generator. The web site you are reading right now is built with it. Here are some others:

Philosophy of Programming

Philosophy of Programming (Work in progress) This is a long time passion project. I finally pulled the trigger and got it going. The site is raw. Keep coming back to it to see it evolve. What is it? It's a way for me to disseminate my programming style. Through this, I can teach as well as build community at the same time.

Fedora Games Lab

I am the the official maintainer of the Fedora Games Lab

The Games "spin" is a specialized distribution of Fedora Linux designed to expose children and young people to Linux as well as to show that Linux is a viable gaming platform

In this role, I am responsible for ensuring that every game is ready on time for the Fedora release schedule. This is done by monitoring the build status of the games, notify maintainers when they have something to fix and (rarely) personally repair the games directly when needed.

See the official Wiki page here

PrestoPalette was also mentioned in some internet publications: - Press Reader - Fedora Magazine - Sick Gaming

Defunct Projects

They are defunct, but I liked them so much that I still want to talk about them.

John's Website

This was a site I helped build for a friend. John is a video game artist and this was mainly for him to announce himself to his personal network. The website used some kooky CSS-3D special effects. I had fun building this for John. The site is now defunct. But it was a great project!

Spanish Flashcards iPhone App

This was a great iphone application designed to help you master 1,000 nouns in Spanish. It really works! Maybe I'll re-make it again some day.
