Projects

Here are a few side projects I've worked on.

easy-notifier - This was just a little web service I wrote while learning Go that can send me an email through curl. Example use case: `long-running-cmd; curl http://notify.example.com/email?from=long-running-cmd&message=command exited with status code $?`
Monopoly - C++ developer. A research project I worked on in my senior year of college at Ripon. We were modeling the game of Monopoly to analyze strategies. I created a fresh, fast implementation of the model in C++ to speed things up.

I also consulted on the original Python implementation of the model, which was being used in order to perform calculations in numpy.
