Farkle game for two players

Farkle game screenshot

This Farkle dice game is another JavaScript application. It incorporates a number of jQuery affects to enhance the user’s experience. Play Farkle for Two Players.

Before starting play, user’s have the option of personalizing the game by entering their names. Personalized instruction prompts appear during play.

The dice are rolled with a click of the “Roll Dice” button. Dice are selected for scoring by clicking on them. Selected dice fade and can be unselected if desired. Dice that are already scored become more faded and cannot be clicked.

Game instructions are hidden, but will appear with a mouse-click on the “Show Instructions” link.

The Game is mobile-friendly and can be played on a tablet or smartphone. It does require a modern browser (not IE8!).

Note: There is special “end game” effect. You can take a shortcut and view this effect by clicking in the upper left corner of the game page.

I’ve also created a Ruby version of this game which is played in terminal. It can be found on GitHub.

Coating line simulation revision

Coating Line Animation

The first version of this simulation (shown in the previous post) was created to help visualize the flow of items as they underwent a coating and curing process. This version is simply a revision with a more streamlined layout and different patterning for the items’ movements. It is an animation, created with D3.js, a JavaScript library for data visualization. You can see this version here (note: This animation works best on Google Chrome, and requires a modern browser—not IE8). This revised animation will be used in the continuing analysis during the engineering/development phase of building the production line.

Coating line simulation using D3 JavaScript library

This project was created for the purpose of visualizing a coating line process. It is an animation, created with D3.js, a JavaScript library for data visualization. In this case, I used D3 to animate the movement of 10 items that go through a coating and curing process. Check it out here (note: This animation works best on Google Chrome, and requires a modern browser—not IE8). This animation will be used for analysis during the engineering/development phase of building a production line.

Cleveland Give Camp project

I recently had the privilege of attending Cleveland Give Camp and working on a website for a great charity—GASPohio.org. The site is built on my custom WordPress theme (incorporating Foundation by Zurb for responsiveness).

The project was completed in two days with a five-person team (this included a project manager and graphic designer). There were two experienced coders on the team—with a great overall mix of talents and personalities. Two representatives from the charity worked with us for the entire weekend. It was a fun and fast-paced project.
