The Media Monitor App

Inspired by my previous work in PR, I created the Media Monitor App to help users search a keyword and find the latest articles about the query on Guardian and NYTimes. If you register/login you can also edit/save your keywords to produce a stylized coverage report. As long as you don’t log out, you can access your report every day to see top results and share your favorite articles via twitter through my app. I created this app front to back in 4 days.

HTML, CSS, JQuery (minimal), Bootstrap, Masonry, JavaScript (aka Node.js & Express.js), Sequelize, Postgres, Async, Bcrypt, cookie-parser, cookie-session, Passport and two APIs: The Guardian , The New York Times Article Search API.

The HiLOLz Chatroom

The HiLOLz Chatroom was created with Socket.io and is intended to be an open sourced project. The room allows users to chat together with random strangers or create private rooms to share with friends. The aim is the encourage others to create triggers for various css animations that would appear on the screen every time a keyword is struck.

Javascript, Socket.io, HTML, CSS

The idea is to facilitate lunch-sharing with friends and other Serendipitous users in your area at POPS (Privately Owned Public Spaces).
