I don't have many of my personal projects up online as they were generally small-scale or robot programming. This is something I certainly hope to change (the lack of available code, not the robots). My GitHub, while lacking, still has some code available to browse! Here are a few projects I've worked on, code in ninja-mode or not.

Tech Used: Node.js, Express.js, Jade, CSS3

This is the obvious one. This is what you're looking at right now! It started as a basic personal site but after a little bit of tinkering one night I ended up with a rather nice system. I'm hoping to use this as a way of testing tech and playing with different ways of displaying content. It's definitely not perfect, and there are lots of small things I want to change in the future. Some parts of it are my way of testing design patterns found around and seeing how they work in a real test. Code on Git!

Multi-Device, Multi-Touch Collaborative Mindmap

Tech Used: Node.js, Express.js, Backbone.js, MongoDB, Socket.io, Handlebars.js

This was some of the research I was doing at the Hotsoft labs. I was exploring new ways of using web technologies to make interesting web applications with multiple users and how touch devices can work with them. Some cool stuff went into making mobile phones interact with larger screen-based applications.
