Scatter Stocks - Visualize Impact of News on Stocks

A way to dive into how different news events impact share prices

Scatter Stocks was inspired by a Bloomberg article on how companies kept getting “Amazoned”. To be Amazoned means to have your business crushed because the company got into your industry. Embedded within their article was a graph called Bezos Bombshells. It was a great visualization that displayed how different shares rose and fell based on news from Amazon. For example, when Amazon accquired Whole Foods, stocks of Walmart and Kroger dipped.

Airppt - Go from Powerpoint to working HTML

What if Powerpoint was your designer tool

Background I’m constantly coming up with ideas for apps that will help me in my daily use. I don’t need complex interfaces, just a few buttons and labels in the right layout (or at least placeholders in the right position, so I don’t have to mess with the CSS). UI takes too long for prototypes - easier to make in Powerpoint. Hmm…wouldn’t it be great if Powerpoint was my UI designer?

Things I care About

Figuring out what comes after college

I graduate from college in December 2017. And I keep getting asked what I’m going to do next. Do I go work? Do I tour the world? Do I go help with world hunger? The honest answer is, I don’t know. However, I want to take some time to explore the things that I love and explore what I care about. It’s not money I want to make right now, but more about finding my place in the world.

Weekend Project #5: Alarm Jam

Wake up to your musical on Amazon Echo

This one was an idea that I’ve had for a while now and I finally got around to building it. I’ve always wanted to be able to wake up to my own music. I hoped that when I bought my Amazon Echo, I’d be able to do this. There’s always a song running in the back of my head and a morning alarm with that song is the perfect way to start out the day.

Weekend Project #4: Hackend

A Fast Serverless Backend Generator

Hackend Check it out here I’ve really wanted to build a website for a while.Serverless applications are simple to set-up and use, but tedious to configure. So I wanted to build something to help with that. Hackend was one of those ideas that I set out building back in JULY to make it happen. I recruited a few friends to help me with building it out as well. However, it never turned out the way I expected it too.
