A website I've created to solve the niche problem of game developers finding jobs.
It will serve as a central place for game developers to display their experience and achievements as well as to search for employment.
Currently in its infant stages.
A game I've always wanted to work on.
It's a simulation/strategy game. A sort of mixture between Majesty, Dwarf Fortress, and the Sims.
I started this project initially as an effort to write code everyday. I've been working on it for over 200 days straight as of (January 1st 2015).
Since it's a solo project I've done everything from create sprites and animations in photoshop, to write music, and long design documents.
A home page for a consulting group made for a couple friends of mine.
Went for a clean, minimal design that emphasized their work.
This was the first time I tried out the parallax scrolling effect (for the header). Also created a neat slide-in/slide-out effect for switching the tabbed content.
Inspired by a tweet from a friend of mine:
I want an app that takes the weather, my commute, and an input of how I'm feeling today to determine if I should go to work.— Emily Mias (@emilymias) January 2, 2014
I decided to create a website that when given two locations, would get the length of time required to travel from one to the other, as well as get the current weather in each place.
I didn't get around to figuring out how to turn that information into an opinionated decision. I thought I'd leave that up to the user.
I'm a huge fan of the Elder Scrolls so I wrote a website to randomly generate content from Morrowind by ripping content from the fansite UESP.net.
Technically speaking, I have an api that when hit, crawls the wiki, randomly picks 9 NPCs, grabs their info and picture, and displays it to the user. There's also a caching mechanism that stores the data returned from initial crawls that is backed by a Mongodb instance on the cloud. This caching speeds up the process quite a bit as initial crawls are costly in terms of time.
I wrote this site to solve the problem of finding the longest song for a given artist when you only have $1 to put in a jukebox.
A user can look up an artist, see their albums, and then look up what their longest songs are.
An application that takes a blob of text and converts random words to their closest synonym.
Also allows a person to look up a word, see the synonyms and see the first image result off Flickr.
I was a part of the small team that created this application from the ground up at Rediker Software.
Its primary purpose was to facilitate the evaluation of teachers in school systems easily on a computer or a tablet.
