Personal

Personal Development

Personal projects creating websites, small tools, and experimenting with libraries and APIs.

Developments:

Portfolio Site

Craft CMS, HTML, SASS, Bootstrap, 3DS Max, Photoshop, Aseprite

Built for online presence and as a demonstration of Craft CMS implementation. Combining elements of web development and art together to present as a portfolio or resume. 

The choice of Craft CMS was to ease the creation of potential new website sections such as a blog or expanded art section using the system's 'Structures' and 'Channels', as well as to 'manage content'. The site was originally hosted on Amazon S3 as static HTML.

AmiNavi

NodeJS, Amazon S3, Amazon Lambda, jQuery, JSON

A project focused on picking up Amazon Lambda and expanding NodeJS knowledge. A 'server-less' solution using no database.

A personal project to solve an issue navigating another website. Using Amazon Lambda and NodeJS to periodically extract the links from AmiAmi's sidebar menu to form into JSON files, it then generates a menu system that can form a new URL to show me the products I want to see that would either take several page loads to achieve or would require manual URL adjusting.

Minimap Extra Addon - Tree of Savior

Lua, XML

A side project pushed to GitHub briefly available for use on the game 'Tree of Savior'. Players wanting to explore 100% of each area without guessing or looking at their main map would be able to track the areas not yet explored coloured red and see their overall percentage in their mini map.

Not long after, the way addons were implemented into the game changed and this addon became redundant with the inclusion of this feature in bigger addon bundles.

MMObius

Object Oriented PHP, MySQL, AngularJS, 3DS Max, Photoshop

An idea to collect and display user reviews and ratings about multiplayer online games. Collecting information about what an MMO does well and what it does badly, a user would then be able to view games with particular focuses that others rate it highly for.

The focus of the project was for an interactive modal-based front-end powered by AngularJS.
