Side Projects, FTW!
I love working on side-projects—sometimes to scratch an itch, sometimes to explore a wild idea. I believe it’s the best way to learn anything. You get full control over the creative side of programming. Here’s is a partial list of side projects I have built over the last few years:
One page website that tracks the accuracy of alarmist headlines. There are good reasons to be aware of the dangers we have to face in the future, but alarmist claims, like “world would run out of food” don’t help anyone.
TextQuery is s work-in-progress app to easily run SQL over various data files and create simple visualizations over the analysis.
Autosave is a Cloudflare app that automatically saves form fields (except passwords and credit cards) to localStorage and restores them if the form hasn’t been submitted. This saved the user from losing all the typed data if they accidentally close the window.
It is currently installed on 5000+ websites.
