GoFest is a simple way for music fans to find events in their local area for artists they follow on Soundcloud or Facebook. Users are able to search all upcoming events by location, artists, music genre, dates etc.
In order to make good use of this app, users are encouraged to follow artists they like using a valid (free) Soundcloud account that logs into GoFest, which uses Lastfm API for the event data. While perusing events, a random song from a followed artists loads into a music player. This app is currently in development for a commercial start-up.
A game app developed to help teach the fundamentals of computer coding and music theory to young students in the 8-10 year old range. Learn.R is a fun way to introduce these concepts to developing young minds.
Users can create an account, play games in each category and score points for each level completed. The coding section was inspired by Karel, a simple programming language used in Stanford CS106, taught at Stanford University.
Inspired by the hard-to-find underground DJ music found on Resident Advisor, an international online DJ culture guide, CloudPlaylist.R builds playlists based on the Monthly Top 50 DJ Charts
The lists are generated automatically each month using Nokogiri to scrape the data and Soundcloud API to build the playlists. For those who love underground music, this app makes it easy to find the latest cuts tested by highly respected artists.
Causes In A Classroom
An educational nonprofit in prototype, which connects traditional classrooms to local nonprofits. This partnership allows instructors to choose locally screened nonprofits that align with their course content.
Through TheCommunityCorps.org I volunteer with front-end design and layout work using Wordpress and custom CSS styling. It feels good to contribute my coding skills on volunteer projects like this, especially benefiting children and education.
