These are the products/side-projects that I'm currently working on. Some I've left on the back-burner and are almost "abandonware" territory, but others I actively work on and develop. I'm always open to new opportunities, so if you have an idea you'd like built, let me know: [email protected] or @cderm on Twitter
This is a side project I built to help developers and programmers quickly build effective portfolios using their GitHub profile. It's an angular 4+ application running on a nodejs backend, hosted on Heroku. The app uses an API built on the backend to generate single-page websites, using Handelbarsjs as the templating engine.
This is my current project, and the responses have been mixed to negative from those I've shown it to. Although the UX has gotten better, it's still lacking, and I'm very close to re-working it (again).
It's actually quite an enjoyable project, and I'm (trying) to use free templates as "lead magnets" to build a list with which the app could then launch to. If I'm honest, it's not going fantastically well, but I'm learning. :)
This simple 2-page website is something I built for myself when I was searching for a 9-5 job. I got tired of putting the same search terms in across 3-4 different sites. So, I built a simple web app that uses jquery on the frontend and nodejs on the backend.
A custom-built API on the backend accepts the keywords and location from the frontend and scrapes the 3 sites listed (Monster.ie, Jobs.ie and irishjobs.ie), and then returns the results in a JSON object that the frontend can show using Handlebarsjs for templating.
This was a fun project too, and I haven't worked on it in a while. But, I don't want to kill it just yet. Maybe next time I'm looking for a job it'll vome in handy again. :)
This was a project initially started with a good friend of mine Ciaran Maguire when we were both trying to hone our web development skills.
We wanted an extensions manager that looked good and had "groups" so we could toggle on and off multiple extensions at once.
So far it's doing really well, we're really happy with it for the moment, but have ideas as to how it could be monetised. Whenever we get a free couple of days, we might try that out.
