  • Superlinkx Tech Thoughts (Other amazing things)

    I created a new blog where I write about various programming and tech-related projects I've worked on. My main series so far has been examining my solution to Docker-based deployments.

  • Project Helium (Development)

    My first major personal project.

    A 2D, vertically scrolling, top-down shooter I wrote in HTML5 and JavaScript when HTML5 was just becoming implemented in browsers.

    I never completed all the features I planned for it because the codebase was getting cluttered. However, it is a fully functional game complete with a high score.

  • Eating Disorder (HTML5 Game) (Development)

    This is a little HTML5 game a friend and I worked on for fun over the course of a month. Uses a physics engine and is a "become the biggest" style game.

  • Quickmailer (Development)

    A quick command-line application that I built in a couple of hours to enable sending a directory of files as attachments in an automated email. My dad needed a way to send out generated reports to clients at a specific time of day, and this piece allowed him to do so quickly.
