The domain name blaine.codes says it all. I love programming ever since I started using a computer as a kid. The possibilities almost limitless. I have worked on quite a few projects over the years starting with my own personal websites I created in middle school most of them now in the archive. Entered into a virtual e-commerce business in high school winning 1st in Advanced Website Development of California. That got me a job as a website designer for a local company. From there I went into business under the name of Cenode with my best friend. We developed apps from simple utility apps to full on social networks custom made to a rather unique concept. Also trying our hand at a few games we thought that maybe another social network was in order. We also did some client work for a few local businesses improving SEO and brand recognition. From there I went to work with my CIS Bachelors of Science Degree at a local safety software company. I currently work at Tyrion Integration where I am building business intelligence interfaces.
I started at Tyrion working as a contracter building an auction house site and quickly transitioned into building the Tyrion Cloud which is a web based dashboard for the IIOT space where users can see and trend and report metrics on their industrial processes. I now develop business intelligence applications for the companies internal use cases.
Featheread is a web based social network I built in partnership with a good friend. It can be summed up as the "YouTube" for books where new and aspiring authors can publish new books one chapter at a time and gain a following to peak the interest of publishers. We launched it with several free use books to aid in adoption of the site.
Cache by Cenode
Cache once my first attempt at developing an ios social network with my good friend running the design and business logitistic sides of things. Cache is an iOS app that leveraged gps, push notifications and massive amount of public domain images to kickstart a passive social network that allows you to travek back in time to see events that took place at a location anywhere from minutes to years prior to you walking over that location.
WebScanr is a solo project that I built out that is a rather simple web scraping service. It allows you to leverage a simple API or control panel interface to gain information such a title and or description of the webpage and even capture a screenshot of how the website looks in your browser. It also has a website security auditing service to help you stay secure online.
After the slow startup of Featheread we decided we wanted to build an iOS game called Tri-Add, where you mix colors of light in an additive never ending game that is as frustrating as it is addictive. Everyone is used to mixing pigments which uses subtractive color mixing which is different than mixing light. This makes the game incredibly difficult.
A Simple camera filter that allows you to achieve an anamorphic lens effect with far less cost than a true anamorphic lens. The filters seemed easy to fabricate in house and initial tests worked good until we relized all the variations needed to support a broad range of lenses correctly. The site was a simple product store page with a custom checkout interface.
This is the first competative website project I ever did, It featured a simple store front for a virtual business economy where students accross the world compete to gain a virtual currency edge over their peers and stand out as a great ethical business. Our business team won 1st place in nationals. The website won 1st in california for advanced web development and honorable mention in New York Nationals.
Owln is a simple link sharing/rating site that doesnt have a login and simple is influenced on public input. too many people flag a link it gets removed as being judged by the public. it leveraged a easy to integrate commenting system for comments. It featured simple view counters and up down votes that limited the number of votes per day. It truly was rather simple.
Folders 2 Google Photos
A simple cross platform electron app that allows you to upload a folder hiearchy to your google photos account so that each folder of photos gets added to an album with the folder name allowing you to keep things neat and organized while still benefiting from the free google photos storage every google account comes with.
This was the first job out of college where I used C# and other web technologies to bring an existing project into modern times leveraging current libraries and building out a rather broad safety tracking system that we licensed out to other companies. it had features randing from training record keeping and time tracking to file and user management tools.
This was one of the several wordpress websites I developed for hire where brand representation means everything to give them an edge over the competition. I worked directly with the customer learning their edge and designed a new identity for them to use and benefit from. This was one of the more simple ones but one of the few still around.
Threndr was my senior project in college. I helped design the brand and designed and developed the website from scratch. It featured a custom mysql database, custom php organized into presentation, business & data layers. It had a management interface as well for adding inventory. And had a fully functional cart with checkout. It was developed in 6 weeks and received an A.
