I have made a lot of code in my time. It has mostly worked and some of it sort of looks okay. I hope to collect my work here so someone will stumble across it and pay me a million dollars to save the world with computer code or something.

Transformations Game
<jQuery>, <CSS 3>, <HTML 5>, <Git>
I re-programmed an old game I made in Visual Basic at some summer conference about computer animation. It's a game to help students practice their knowledge of coordinate transformations.

Grading Curve Calculator
<jQuery>, <CSS>, <HTML>, <Perl>
I needed some nice looking graphs for my class so I can show students how they did on tests. I employed my fancy new CSS/HTML/jQuery skills to make that happen.

Racing Game
<jQuery>, <CSS>, <HTML>, <Git>
I took a class in spring of 2015 on HTML/CSS/jQuery. I do that when I think about career change. It was part one of a four-part path to becoming a programmer. But do I really want to do that? CAN I really do that now that I'm old? This game is a good indicator that maybe I shouldn't. I got a good grade on this, though.

jQuery RPG
<jQuery>, <CSS>, <HTML>, <Git>
This web app was featured on the site that hosts the school as a thing that people can make when they take this class. So I guess that's good. I tried to be funny, as well. Maybe I could be a programmer after all if I just worked hard at it? So, no, then.

Crayon Sorter
<jQuery>, <CSS>, <HTML>, <Git>
More of my work from the class I took. This is an exploration of sorting principles. I wanted to know how to sort by color, so I spent a lot of time figuring that out. The animation is pretty bad so I didn't get a spectacular grade on this one.

2-3-4-5 Solver
<jQuery>, <HTML>
I gave a challenging extra credit problem for students that asked them to find the lowest number that cannot be created by using the numbers 2, 3, 4, and 5, and any parentheses, addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. None of my colleagues or I has an easy answer, so I brute forced it using some jQuery. This is how I spend my breaks.

Seating Chart Creator
<jQuery>, <CSS>, <HTML>
I'm working on a simple seating chart maker. Well, I have big plans for it (seating by demographic, preferential seating, etc.), but lost motivation a bit, so it might never get done. Right now, it's just a basic randomizer of whatever names you type in.
