Side Projectslast updated: Sun Jan 20 03:06:13 2019
Darryl thinks that working on side-projects are an excellent way to advance your career. All the extra hours of practice, outside of the stuff the clients give him, is how he's been able to advance his knowledge.
Here are some of Darryl's public side projects: (There are also many non-public side-projects that Darryl would prefer to never see the light of day)
Hypatia Math Library Hypatia is a graphics library useful for 2D/3D video games. It contains the C code for a 2D and 3D matrix, quaternions and vectors.
Worked up to task 16 out of 20 of the Eudyptula Challenge before it was closed
Spoonbill (Work in progress) is a static web site generator. This web site was built with it. As well as a few others in Darryl's sphere of influence.
You can find more in Darryl's public GitHub profile
WebGL has been a lot of fun. Here are two projects
- www.johncboins.com This is a site Darryl helped build for a friend. John is a video game artist and this is mainly for him to announce himself to his personal network. Be sure to view the site on a desktop computer, not a phone. The homepage has a bit of kooky CSS-3D special effects on it. Darryl had fun building this for John.
- Philosophy of Programming (Work in progress) This is a long time passion project of Darryl's. He have finally pulled the trigger and got it going. The site is raw. Keep coming back to it over the next few months to see it go. What is it? It's a way for Darryl to disseminate his programming style. Through this, he can teach as well as build community at the same time.
