I am a Canadian student developer interested in programming, finance and electronics.
I write iPad, Ruby, Qt and Rails apps for fun, work and homework.
I’m currently studying CS at the University of Waterloo.
These are some of my personal software projects.
- An iPad app for personal finance planning.
- A Ruby command line tool for managing Git repositories.
- A web app for visualizing long term stock market data
- The New Open Turing Editor
- An improved implementation of the Turing language, including a new editor written in Qt.
I also wrote a compiler.
- A ruby gem that that manipulates PNG files to create magic thumbnails.
- A work-in-progress eye tracker that requires only a normal webcam.
Stuff I’ve Done
This is a list of the things I have worked on and am currently working on. It is in kind of chronological order. I will try and write down all the things I have worked on. Unfortunately I don’t remember many of the things I worked on in years gone by. I am also more productive nowadays so the list will look a little top-heavy.
