Projects

Static site stack on AWS

When I was working on redesigning my website, part of my work involved creating a Terraform stack to automate the spinup of the site and implement a CI workflow to easily update it. I published and documented my work for public use as part of that project.

FastInviter

I built FastInviter as a response to a perceived need to easily schedule events and manage RSVP’s easily. It’s built in the CodeIgniter PHP framework, which I’m very comfortable with. While it hasn’t really taken off, I’m still very proud of it; it’s a great feeling to build something and have it work, and I enjoy challenging myself outside of my work environment.

zabbixweb

As a server administrator, I love being able to see exactly what my servers are doing at any given time, but there wasn’t really a good piece of software out there that fit my needs. I loved the depth of data that Zabbix or Nagios gave me as well as the historical views, but trying to fit twenty-plus servers into one easily digestible view just wasn’t possible. To solve this problem, I wrote a jQuery-based API frontend for Zabbix that organized server data into a helpful view and released it for public development on GitHub as zabbixweb. This is one of my favorite projects both because it’s still being actively developed and because it was a great way to bring some web skills into the server administration sphere.
