    The Web UI for the Nomad cluster scheduler developed and maintained by HashiCorp. Cluster schedulers are tools designed to take arbitrary workloads and run them on arbitrary computers in a cluster. The UI helps operators in an organization maintain availability of services and computation while monitoring resources across the cluster. The UI also helps developers deploy their own services without needing the expertise operators sepcialize in.

  • NPR Songs We Love Bookmarklets

    2015

    • JavaScript
    • Browsers

    The NPR Songs We Love app was a wonderful thing, but it had no way to pin/favorite/star/save the tracks you liked. This was solvable in many ways, but the way that sounded the most interesting at the time was bookmarklets. With a click of a bookmarklet, the track would be saved to localstorage. I went overboard and created additional bookmarklets for seeing the track list and for disliking tracks. You know, just for fun.

  • Github Avatar Arrangement

    2014

    • Python
    • Processing

    A quick sketch that generates all possible Github Avatars (not including color variations). Since Github default avatars are created through the toggling of 15 states, the resulting space is only 215. Which is high, but not so high it isn't presentable in a single image.
