A very short, out-dated list of my work

  • API Demo: The Victoria & Albert Museum
    This demo uses HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JSONP, and jQuery to provide an image viewer for the collections data at the Victoria & Albert Museum using their public API. jQuery is used primarily for the Ajax call and initialization. I wanted to use standard client-side JavaScript as much as possible as a challenge. The data is delivered in JSONP format. Because the data is coming from an external source, the HTML page acts as a view rather than a content store.

  • Select Name References in Nietzsche's Published Texts
    This is an experiment using JQuery, JSON, and Highcharts.js. I wanted to chart the number of times various proper names appear in each of Nietzsche's published works in the hope of detecting significant patterns. Several trends are visible. The data was gathered from using the search field. It is likely incomplete since I may have overlooked certain German case-endings in my search.
