Some Fun Projects At Work

Wingstack GUI

Most of the work I do is interesting however, much of it is simply interfaces. Build out a GUI and hook up the Javascript to talk to a back-end system. Be that in PHP, Python, VBSCRIPT, ASP.net, or whatever.

In some ways these two projects were no different. I still needed to build a GUI and hook up the connection BUT, this time I wrote the back-end code in Python to deal with hardware through an I/O interface.

Newton's cannonball was a thought experiment Isaac Newton used to hypothesize that the force of gravity was universal...

I am currently working on a CRM that will be including a feature to display statistics on a large screen.

So anyways, this is what I came up with: SVG-Preloader GitHub Repo.

Basic usage is quite simple:

Wes Mantooth is a game development framework. It's a hobby and a tool for learning to optimize vanilla Javascript. It's not intended for production use and I probably will never actually build a game with it. If I intended to build a web-based game I would likely use Unity.
