Projects

I usually have a number of projects I’m focused on.
I recently bought a Raspberry Pi for “hobby” work and the aim of learning RFID/NFC processing.
I am also designing a project to teach myself Microsoft Azure Functions and Table Storage. The project will be a test-data generation service.


Vylesk Connect: My company, Vylesk, is developing a Web Application/Portal Framework designed to handle the hard, repetitive work of developing a mobile web application or intranet/portal.
Connect is going live (phase 1 of 4) for its first custom in November 2018, with phase 4 go-live before university starts in 2019.
With 2 other staff, I am the architect and primary developer of the platform. It has been 12 months in the making and is designed security first, with UX and extensibility high secondary technical concerns.

jsUplink (https://uplink.jsnelders.com/): A small JavaScript script with a backing Azure Function to lookup and replace ugly <a> links within pages.
Build primarily to service a new section to this site and release free for the world to use.
(First published 7 July 2018 with more features and enhancements to come, including favicon display. I’m also dogfooding it at https://connect.jsnelders.com/

WhatsMyTime: Initial R&D prototype developed at https://stackblitz.com/edit/whatsmytime. Further development and a dedicated site with examples to come.

Connect (https://connect.jsnelders.com/): This is a project 3 years and a handful of attempts in the making. Connect is my attempt to solve a personal problem: web bookmarks, information collection and notes in one space. Think of it as Chome bookmarks meet OneNote. In the past, I build a web app from the ground up using ASP.NET/Bootstrap/Auth0/Azure Storage/Azure websites. This time: WordPress, a bit of JavaScript and 1 Azure Function. It’s also the reason and testbed for my jsUplink project.
(7 July 2018: I’ve just managed to get the site up and some initial pages down. It’s ugly, it’s raw, it’s got a long way to go – please bear with me.)
(9 Nov 2018: This project – and my website as a whole – will soon be rolling into the Vylesk Connect platform, so I can dogfood my own work).
