Slack / Git / GitHub / RubyMine / Rails
DigitalOcean is a cloud hosting provider with an ever-growing community. I work remotely with the rest of the community team at DigitalOcean to manage the day-to-day operations of the community Questions & Tutorials sites, moderating new content posted to ensure all users have a great time as well as working with the engineering team for the community sites to bring better experiences to our users.
cdnjs.com - Cloudflare
Discourse / Slack / Twitter / Git / GitHub / WebStorm / Photoshop
cdnjs is a free and open-source CDN service that serves resources to 10.5% of all websites. I work for Cloudflare on contract to help maintain and moderate cdnjs, working with the community around the project through Twitter, GitHub and our Discourse forum. I also work with the sponsors of the project such as Algolia and StatusPage to ensure the CDN service and website are maintained.
Git / GitHub
js.org is a simple project with the aim to allow anyone to request a js.org subdomain for their project's website for free. The project is run by the GitHub user @indus along with myself. We manage the subdomains through a GitHub repository and a single file that tracks all the active CNAMEs. My main task is to review all new pull requests to enure they meet our standards.
MagicCap is an open-source, versatile image/GIF capture suite for Mac and Linux. I originally started out as an open-source contributor to MagicCap, making minor changes to the CSS behind the UI. However, I soon became heavily involved with the project, responsible for the majority of the user interface but also the user experience that it provided. I now also handle a large amount of organization administration, reviewing PRs and managing error reports.
PyCharm / Python / Git / GitHub / Photoshop
Python has always been a language I love to work in and after setting up a load of DMX controlled lights in my office I needed a programatic way to control them all. With this in mind I found a basic Python usb wrapper for the uDMX device and built myself a custom, powerful Python module for controlling DMX fixtures using uDMX.
