None of the following projects were done for clients or with other developers. They were all done independently because I love coding. I'm proud of them for their good concepts and technical craftsmanship, not necessarily for what's readily apparent on the surface or because they're popular. Some have been running rock-solidly for years with no need for fixes. If you're interested in and understand programming, have a look; if not, then probably none of this will be meaningful.the site you're looking at (and its framework)
A single sign-on solution (written in Java) that can tell a relying party (RP) that a user the RP knows about
is signed in with an originating user agent without revealing anything about the user's account
to the RP or requiring the RP to be known to the system. It runs (with nginx acting as a reverse proxy) on a
smoking-fast general-purpose NIO-based
server I wrote. With massive per-core localhost ApacheBench concurrency like
ab -n 10000
-c 1000, which usually brings Apache's own httpd to its knees, the server runs about 50%
faster than Netty. A simple
demonstration of RP usage, where saving changes is the protected action, can be found here.
Centripetal taxation in action, using the HTML5 canvas API.image tree
A photo-sharing site with public-facing CCViews PHP, centralized authentication, a back-end Java socket listener, and a Java client app. The client watches a local folder, automatically resizing, compressing, and uploading any image files that are added or changed.flat grey wall
An AJAX/LAMP online art gallery.22 true
A general-purpose credibility network and inference engine: a java web service and accompanying AJAX client that also includes a Lucene-based search engine and crawler (written from scratch because Nutch at the time had an incredibly poor crawler implementation and used JSP's). What I'd do differently if I were to write it today: I wouldn't use Tomcat or MVC templating, and I'd have it be driven by links on the targets instead of by people, since discovering truth seems to be less motivating to the normals than it is to me.throughput
