    • Contributed to the CommissionCalc software, a tool to automatically calculate commissions.
    • Created a module to automatically manage parameter tables; the presence of this tool was a major difference between the Standard and Enterprise versions of CommissionCalc.
    • Gathered data from Excel with the Microsoft Excel API.


  • CommissionCalc (Development)

    A tool to help calculate salesman commissions; the inclusion of my module was the primary distinction between the standard and premium versions of the product.

  • Jog Record Management (Development)

    A single-page Angular app to help people track their jogging records. Features three types of user with different privileges, statistical analysis of jogging records, and search functionality.

  • Melanoscan (Development)

    A project written in C++ to automatically control a network of 25 cameras and analyze their pictures to help diagnose skin cancer.

  • Archive of Our Clone (Development)

    A functional clone of the website "Archive of Our Own." This is a commercial-scale project, involving twenty-one database tables and an extensive feature set. It has a powerful search engine, tagging functionality, a full WYSIWYG editor, and commenting. The back-end was written in Ruby on Rails, the front-end is JavaScript with jQuery.

    Rather than using third-party tools for certain common tasks, I wrote my own as an exercise. This includes commenting and much of the search engine.
