Released Some Alpha


We are making some serious progress with Noodls! The properties (art layers) are over 80% completed, we have a trailer that will be ready soon, and the website is coming together wonderfully! 

I have been super nervous to put out anything related to Noodls with a hard date, but today I am happy to announce that Reservations for Noodls will be open in February 2022!

Minted 50 Noodls on the Testnet


Wow. Today, I added the layers I have so far to a file, ran a command, and ended up with 50 randomly generated Noodls!! I have to say I owe this all to this Hashlips Youtube tutorial and this GitHub page. The tutorial walked me through generating the NFTs, understanding/uploading the metadate, and even minting 50 on the testnet. 

I really appreciate HashLips' tutorials. He really makes the art of NFTs accessible to so many people through his tutorials and github repos. He'll never see this, but thank you HashLips! I couldn't do any of this without ya!

Today I start Noodls!

I've been tip-toeing into the NFT space over the past week or so and it is one of the most captivating spaces I've ever been in. Today, I start my own NFT collection - Noodls! Noodls will be 10,000 bowls of ramen noodles simmering on the Ethereum Blockchain. I don't know where this will go, but today I start to find out!

Coded a beta Sportsbook!


Okay, so to be totally honest, lately I've been gambling on sports way more than I should be. But something weird is happening... I'm actually winning! Lady luck is smiling down on me and I couldn't be more grateful. 

With that being said, sports betting is on my mind HEAVY. So, I decided to put my developer skills to the test and try to build my own sportsbook and bet tracking website! I got the name Locks from a betting group chat I have with some friends. 

The site is only, like, 70% functional, and it doesn't allow you to put money in, but it has more bet-tracking capabilities than I've ever experienced in another online sportsbook. I think it's probably intentional they don't offer an easy way for you to see your bet history, all in one place. 

Locks Features
  • Custom Wordpress Theme, designed and built from an empty skeleton theme using PHP, Javascript, AJAX, Bootstrap, MySQL, CSS, and HTML of course. 
  • Fine tuned back-end functions and arithmetic to determine bet payouts. 
  • An interactive dashboard featuring showing your bet history and net balance over time, in both a chart (thank you Chart JS!) and list format
  • Ability to Tag games as headline events
  • Much more!
I hope to share Locks with some friends soon and get feedback moving forward. 

UPDATE: As of 1/19/22, this project has been put to the side while I work on my genesis NFT collection, Noodls! I hope to come back to Locks one day and create an amazing crypto inspired, web3 forward sportsbook.

The look and functionality of a Give Center feature where nonprofits can edit their custom pages is coming together nicely! 2 years ago I was sending customers a dense, 5 page PDF for them to fill out and return to me only to manually enter loads of information about their orgs. Now, I'm a lot better at coding and my customers will be able to update their pages as they please, with no delays! Proud developer moment over here!

I’m in an airport on the way home from a trip to Illinois. While walking Chicago streets this past week, I saw a lot of sidewalk slabs printed with the business info of the concrete company(this will make more sense in a sec). I also visited numerous neighborhoods packed to the brim with the culture and heritage of the people who built those communities. 

The cultural footprints of major players was clear in most of these areas. The greats had streets, restaurants, and parks named after them. But what about the smaller players? They still had major impacts, but where is the recognition? 

I wonder if there could be (or already is) an organization whose mission was to 1) publicly and permanently recognize those who built communities and 2) make it more accessible for community members to build up their neighborhoods - through private funds? 

At the very least we could stamp some sidewalk slabs with the names of individuals, groups, and families who were a part of that areas heritage. Like a neighborhood walk of fame? 

All that to say I just picked up the domain buildthiscity.org! Maybe I’ll make something out of it, maybe I won’t, but I’m damn sure I’ll try!
