I am interested in data and analytics and in particular how it can be more accessible with better tooling. In 2020, I co-wrote this article. I am a fan of using Python and SQL for data analytics.
In 2018 and 2019, I experimented with machine learning here and wrapped it in Django to demo. I originally deployed the Django app on a VPS and manually configured and managed the web server and database server (I won’t do that again).
In 2019, I played around with stat models here to predict the 2019 AFL season because I haven’t played/followed footy since school but I wanted to take part in the tipping comp. Overall, it performed ok but notably did 100% accuracy in one of the rounds.
In 2014, I made Timely, a time recording web app for use at work. It allowed my teammates to conveniently track time they spent on projects for billing and costing purposes. I built it as a simple CRUD web app using PHP without any app frameworks. It was the first app I made and I learned a lot about authentication and data capture.
In 2014, I made Where To, an iPhone app that finds a place nearby to go to when you’re out with friends and everyone’s response to “where to?” is “I don’t mind, anywhere is cool with me.” I wrote it in Objective-C and used Google’s Places API to find interesting places. I am still maintaining this app for iOS changes. It doesn’t make any money or have any users but I enjoy keeping informed about the Apple development platforms.

In 2015, I made this video reviewing the Apple Pencil when it was first released.
