I'm a web-loving, webapp maker kinda guy. Here are a few things I have created for my employers, my freelancing projects and my own personal projects

A Webscraping WordPress Plugin

I wanted to create a sports-related website with a custom-made WordPress plugin and show game schedules for my timezone.  So, I created Gamewinner.tv .  It is a fully automated sports streaming website showing live streaming games ranging from football games to soccer games to even Ultimate Frisbee games.

I coded the WordPress plugin used in the website to automatically scrape other websites for streaming links and game schedules. I also added Javascript code to dynamically display the correct game start times based on the end user’s timezone. 

What helps is there are niche sport leagues hoping to get more exposure through streaming their games live for free.  If you’re looking to watch athletes dive for a frisbee, this website is your you!

UPDATE (2017): planning to sell this site

Drupal CMS Websites

I have experience in WordPress and thought I add some experience in another Content Management System – Drupal.

Drupal doesn’t have as many plugins as WordPress, but Drupal was easier to port to other web accounts.  And the Drupal admin dashboard was also a bit more intuitive.

I created several Drupal websites for my own personal knowledge.  With my love of sports, I created a website of an NFL quarterback,  http://www.MarcusMariotaMania.com

 
UPDATE(2016): I have stopped renewing the MarcusMariotaMania.com domain name.
