@ Good Enough


Pika

A pretty good blogging platform that makes blogging easy and beautiful.

Letterbird

A simple, well-designed contact form on the web. Give people a great experience getting in touch with you, and stop giving out your personal email address.

Yay.Boo

Our take on drag-and-drop HTML web site deployment. (I have not done much work on this one.)

Quack (Beta)

A simple utility for you to share a beautifully rendered version of any markdown text.

Ponder

A quiet place for you and your group to talk on the internet. Most group chat apps are too overwhelming and distracting. Ponder is a new type of forum designed for slow, thoughtful discussion.

Album Whale

We had a desire to keep track of the albums we were listening, as well as keeping track of the albums we wanted to try. We set out to automate all of this while building a small network of people who wanted the same. We're hopeful this will lead to all kinds of fun discovery of new music!

doevery.day

Shawn and I put together a website to help us stay motivated to do the daily thing we like to do to keep ourselves happy. We built it for us to go after creative pursuits like drawing and writing. It's a sort of Seinfeld calendar with a log. And a little fun built in.

@ Before Good Enough


Owatonna Parking

Parking on the street during the winter can be quite a challenge. There are rules that I don't understand, the rules are somewhat hard to follow, and my brain gets lost. This website makes it simple to load a page and park where it tells you to park.

Harvest

From 2007 to 2019 I was part of an elite team at Harvest building the best time tracking and invoicing software on the planet. Being part of the team from nearly the beginning, I held roles from fixing bugs to leading the entire engineering team of 24 members and everything in between. I helped execute projects and build processes that supported our work as the Harvest team grew from 4 to 60 members.

Co-op

(Retired) A private online discussion area for your team to share short messages. We developed Co-op at Harvest to give our distributed team a bit of a watercooler to gather around. An interesting shared cache solution was built to integrate with Harvest at as high a speed as possible.

Follow Cost

(Retired) Built with Luke Francl, Follow Cost measured how frequently people tweet. This helped you make informed choices about who to follow on Twitter. Fun not only due to its usefulness, but also my first chance to experiment with Sinatra. I also created a userscript to bring Follow Cost into the Twitter web UI.

Scorebooker

(Retired) I enjoy playing softball in the summer and I found managing the bits and pieces tedious. Scorebooker was an elegant way to quickly enter stats and schedules for your team. Rails helped me build this site quickly, and jQuery provided fine-tuning for user interactions.

Scrawlers

(Retired) My first Rails app, Scrawlers was built as a combination learning project and personal passion. I partnered with Nate Melcher to build this online writing workshop focused on 100-word stories. It was a great way to learn Rails. Though the business-side of things failed, it was also useful to experience running an app with real customers and real usage demands.
