  • Deploy a React Application with Bitbucket Pipelines

    I use BitBucket Pipelines with this blog and love it! This blog is compiled using Jekyll, and with Bitbucket, I can deploy it to my DigitalOcean Ubuntu server with one click.

  • Using XSLT in Components

    OU Campus components can create powerful interfaces behind the scenes while providing a simple interface for users to interact with. One of the more exciting things is that your components can export XSLT which can be interpreted by the translator when publishing.

  • Merry Christmas

    Every year I carve a stamp and use it for my Christmas cards. I used linoleum for this year’s design instead of speedball. It was more difficult to cut but created a smoother stamp when completed.

  • Bear in Mind Podcast - Digital Currencies

    I appeared on the University of Northern Colorado’s podcast Bear in Mind this week for a quick chat about Crypto-Currencies, Bitcoin, and Blockchain.

  • Jekyll Liquid Plugin Hello World

    This blog has been built with Jekyll templates for about a month now, and I recently moved it over to Bitbucket and hosted with Digital Ocean. Since it moving away from GitHub for hosting, I can use custom plugins! GitHub limits the plugins they allow on their site for security reasons, which makes sense.

  • Welcome to Jekyll, New Format, Same Content

    This blog was running WordPress for the past three years, and today I decided to convert it into Jekyll. The most significant driving factor is that WordPress is overkill for what I want to do. I need a platform where I can publish content and manipulate. Besides the WordPress platform, the template I was using had a handful of extra plugins that were required to run the blog.

  • University of Northern Colorado Map

    The new version of the University of Northern Colorado’s Map has launched! It includes many improvements over the previous version that I developed in 2008. We commissioned Map Formation to design an illustrated drawing of the campus that could be overlayed on top of Google Maps or OpenStreetMap. Using the Adobe Illustrator file they provided, I coded out the new map.
