Free as in Freedom

The free software movement was started in 1983 with computer scientist Richard M. Stallman’s visionwhat if there were a worldwide group of talented ethical programmers voluntarily committed to the idea of writing and sharing software with each other and with anyone else who agreed to share alike? In the 21st century, we clearly see this vision in reality. The modern software ecosystem absolutely depends on free software.

Participation in the development of tools used in my line of work, and development of new tools to share with the global community.

"Free software is software that respects your freedom and the social solidarity of your community. So it’s free as in freedom."

Audio Mixer + Music Theory (Go)

The first prototype of the XJ Music platform was written in Go. There were two major areas of functionality identified early on as potential tool kits that might be of use to other developers. And as it turns out, both go-music-theory and go-mix have become widely used by the community.

Numbers (JS)

I was surprised once upon a time when I couldn’t actually find a tool for this job. So I wrote count, a tiny javascript library to count in natural language e.g. Zero, One, Two, Three .. up to 999,999,999,999,999.

Scraper (JS)

Out of the necessity to export my tasks (from one of the dozens of task managers I’ve used over the years) and in lieu of a proper Export feature, I built an API scraper that has become a front page search result for persons trying to liberate their data from that particular task manager.
