At GREE I worked on the data team, building analytics dashboards that provided insight into game performance for teams across the organization, as well as tools that streamlined and automated marketing and data operations. My role involved: product definition, UI/UX design, front end development, and RESTful API design. Very much a jack of all trades adapting to the ever-changing needs of a fast paced startup environment.
Some of the things I worked on:
Tunetab was a probably my biggest side project to date. I wanted to build a command line interface for YouTube that would allow a group of people to synchronously create and watch video playlists. Why? I was interested in the limitations of CLIs and how they could be used alongside chat (like in IRC or Slack), and inspired by the now defunct Turntable.fm.
Everything from the slowly scrolling neon text to the limitations of the CLI was to inspire a cryptic cyberpunk aesthetic. More art project than good user experience, but anyone who remembers having fun on IRC should quickly feel at home. It even got a few upvotes on ProductHunt and saw a good amount of concurrent users at its peak.
Currently not operational because I would have to update webpack from version 1 to 4 and it's used a deprecated YouTube API. Built using a custom Node.js back-end with in memory data store, React.js front end with homemade flux-like data management architecture and Webpack for the build. Check out the github to get a better idea.
Koi Wallet was a concept and design case study for an iOS bitcoin wallet. It was inspired by my desire to learn more about bitcoin.
