Coding Experiments

Info Alley - initial concept

Before coming up with the final concept for Placemakers Festival - Info Alley, I came up with a quick and visual way to show live stream tweets from hashtags. You can use this as a screensaver for any hashtag instead of the default #ux. Check out the source code.

Affinity

I use affinity diagrams in my UX work, and find it to be a great way to organize and sort anything. I wanted a quick and easy way to organize my thoughts without the extras and that many paid tools offered. I created this web-based affinity tool that anyone can use for free.

Mayo Shuttle

Mayo Clinic employees take a shuttle from various stops in Rochester to get to their work offices. The schedule is only available as a downloadable PDF. It was difficult to quickly locate when the next bus would arrive. I created a simple web app that you could use to quickly find out when the next shuttle bus would arrive based on your current stop.

UX Self-Assessment Sundial

I created a web version of the UX self-assessment sundial (original concept by Elizabeth Bacon) for UX Mastery. Here is my personal UX self-assesment sundial.
