When it comes to writing code, I go through phases. As long as I've been working I've been writing code almost every day, but when it comes to writing code outside of work, it's been everything from writing zero code for months to writing every day. Why? My guess is it's a function of how exciting work code is and how I'm currently viewing my own goals. I haven't done a good job of observing.
Regardless of my motivations, when I am working on code in my spare time, almost all of it goes on github
. For a long time I've linked to that on my resume
, but I think even with github's new pinned repositories, that probably does a poor job of communicating what I've actually done. What are these repos? Can they be seen running anywhere? What was the point of any of them? To address this, I've added the projects page
to this site. These are all the spare time projects that have actually "shipped", along with some info about them.
That's all for now, have a good one.
