I’m involved in open source software development and maintain a few full-stack web-dev and sys-admin projects.

Preferred dev platforms are Red Hat Linux and Android (Bash, Python, Java); but, comfortable in Windows, Mac, iOS environments (C#, Swift, etc.).

Open source dev

Head on over to my GitHub account (@toadlyBroodle) to audit my code. A few projects I’m most proud of:

App dev

Some of my apps have enjoyed more success than others on iTunes and Playstore; i.e. most have failed.

Some successes:

  • Stud Detector
    • Since 2013, this construction wall-stud finder, available on Android and iOS, has been my mainstay.
    • It works by sensing abnormalities, caused by wall-stud screws/nails, in the background magnetic field, as measured by the internal magnetometer (compass) sensor.
  • MinimaList Outline
    • Powerful, yet simple, note-taking app for organizing your projects, daily notes, to-do lists, outlines, journals, etc. all together in one nested, bullet point list.
    • This is my personal daily-driver, note-taking app for Android!
  • 8 Bit Fractal Explorer
    • Endlessly zoom through an 8 bit Mandelbrot set on your Android device.
  • Woodcraft
    • 3D wood carving simulator for Android devices, made using Unity 3D platform.
  • CalculatorWear
    • A wrist watch calculator for Android Wear devices.
    • Retired to GitHub after specious banning of Google dev account…guess the goo-bots didn’t approve of the following app:
  • Booble Level
    • Before being removed from the Playstore, this baby was getting ~16,000 downloads/day—not bad for my first ever app!
    • Since retired to open source space as an example of how to utilize an Android mobile device’s gyroscopes and touchscreen.
