I can’t link to all the things I’ve made, because lots of them are internal to or the intellectual property of the company that employed me at the time. Here are some highlights I can share.
This side project takes a novel approach to keeping things working. It grew out of an idea I blogged in 2012 and has been used by a few companies as a prototype. I’m quite proud of live-updating visualisations, dynamic “beats” that drop if they’re not regularly ticked, and the possibilities that emerge from hierarchically arranging monitoring systems.
Making estimates as a software developer is fraught with risk, and can be a source of stress and tension between devs and non-devs. I built this hobby project as a way of learning React (it’s entirely front-end). Thinking of estimates as distributions is helpful, it’s fun to play with the numbers and see the effect on the charts, and the maths is also interesting.
Following an eye-opening punting bat safari with Scudamore’s in Cambridge, and as a way of indulging my electronics habit, I made myself a bat detector.
I bought the kit from zwergfledermaus.de.
A labour of love for my god-daughter, this little fella made rather a tricky “my first knitting project”.
