About

A couple of bits about me

I am a developer who enjoys building things on and off the web. Aside from that I do enjoy playing and contemplating the quirkiness surrounding human behaviour and existence.

If you would like to know what I am currently up to, you can check out my blog loet codes where I write about my journey as a developer, lessons I have learnt and those I am un-learning. If you are so inclined, you may also check out my new blog loet builds where I just started writing tutorials about easy arduino projects anyone can work on.
Ocassionally I do post articles on Medium and tutorials on Dev.to as well.

Tinkering is second nature to me. I break as much as I make, if not more.

Constantly learning about all the things I don't know, and they are quite a number!

I tend to read a bunch of books at the same time, laugh at life's ironies & try to soundtrack my existence

I can be overly curious at times. It's no wonder I into tech

Family, friends & the great outdoors are dear to me.

Collaboration & Inclusivity! It's exciting to see what a couple of different minds can make together.

Adventure is out there, need I say more!

Web-based gaming project. The aim of this project was to learn more about the HTML5 canvas property with regards to drawing multiple dynamic graphics.
Staying true to the original game, this web-based version is optimized to fit any screen on initial startup, giving the player a view of the entire board at once.

Details

This is an app currently in use by a client company for creating a time-based imagery viewer.
The main purpose of the app is to compare imagery on an interactive map. It features a list of imagery available for comparison, and a slider that swipes over the imagery for comparison. The user is able to select the imagery for a set of given control buttons.
Below is a public demo that is a recreation of the app using freely available imagery hosted on Heroku.

Reach out if you want to view a sample of a client's app that is publicly available.

Python
Pygame

Details

This is a desktop memory game in python.
One of the things I loved about Fringe (other than fringe science) was the weird hidden glyphs and easter eggs scattered throughout the show. Subtle differences in each glyph gave a different meaning.
The aim of this project was to learn more about using pygame. Making a memory game using glyphs from a favourite show was an easy choice.
