outWord phonagle.com/outword | 2009

phonagle.com/outword

Summary: I am the lead programmer and UI designer of outWord, a location-based word game for the iPhone/iPod Touch. With outWord, we've taken Scrabble to street; instead of grabbing letters from a bag, you have to walk around your town and pick up virtual letters to spell out words.

With no knowledge of Objective-C at the beginning of the summer, I had to learn fast. At the same time, my team and I had to come up with an app from scratch. After creating a game which didn't satisfy, we went back to the whiteboards. Finally, we came up with outWord and are delighted with the results, although it's still a work in progress.

While I program and design throughout the day, I test outWord on the streets of Ann Arbor whenever I get a chance. I enjoy tweaking the code and getting some exercise at the same time! You can download it here. You can also read a review of our game here.

Tools: iPhone SDK, Objective-C, PHP, MySQL, Adobe Illustrator

Hal Bidlack for Congress 2008 bidlack2008.com | 2008

bidlack2008.com

Summary: I volunteered for the Bidlack campaign remotely from Ann Arbor, Michigan. I built the entire website and maintained it throughout the campaign. To facilitate site maintenance, all campaign event information was pulled from a Google Calendar XML feed using Javascript and PHP. These events subsequently appeared on a dynamic calendar as well as the campaign events page.

A Translator's Dream trdream.com | 2007

trdream.com

Summary: This is the first website that I made, fresh out of a PHP programming class at Washtenaw Community College. I was hungry to program a dynamic, web 2.0 site where users could post text to be translated by others. It was quite challenging at times, but it was an amazing learning experience. I enjoyed it to such an extent that I decided to further explore the combination of computer languages and natural languages at the University of Michigan School of Information.
