Home LinkedIn GitHub Projects Contact Me To Do List Game

This project was a desire to further work on JavaScript, as well as make something more visual and interactive than some of the other projects I have made. I made a clone of the popular game 2048 as I figured it would be a fun idea. I also used this as a way to larn how to use cookies, as a way to store old high scores. To find this game, click on the "Game" tab on this website (only available on desktop).

This project is a recent attempt to have a console based (for now) python script that lets me write,edit and sort personal todo list items by cost, ease, and importance. I utilize the sqlite3 library to create a database to store all of the items between sessions. I use regular expressions to make the parsing of the inputs a lot easier to handle, additionally the print function prints the data in an easy to read table, and handles IO as a list of lists with regex to simply things.

This project stems from a desire to create a portfolio of myself to those looking for Software Developers. As seen here, I am documenting projects I am doing/have done, contact info, and my resume and cover letter. This site runs on HTML, CSS, PHP, and a little bit of JavaScript. I have a to do list tab on this site as a way to both keep track of my project endeavors, as well as a way to show to others the steps it took to assemble the projects I have worked on and the skills I am currently trying to develop.

This project was started on a whim as a result of a COVID related quarantine. In my undergrad we had to use JavaFX to make an interactive tournament bracket, and I thought making a simple GUI based text simulator would make a great project to freshen up on Java, as well as have a project to put on my resume, something up until this point I did not have. I may still work on this, but creating this website and working on coding in Python has caught my interest more as of late.
