My Apps

Throughout my blog posts you may find articles with scripts, utilities, and other supporting applets targeting developers, IT admins, and the like. I also create apps, for general consumer use! See below!

Virtual Happy Hour

I created this when COVID-19 hit, because I saw a rather large gap in the remote options. Zoom was the only one that had the idea of bringing a ton of people together and then, as they call it, put people randomly into breakout rooms. This is great, however, it does cost extra and doesn’t really fit into a happy hour.

My Virtual Happy Hour app allows you to have a large party, like a happy hour, and be able to selectively have side conversations during that party. Just like a real party, everyone doesn’t sit there and just listen to 1 person talk at a time. My app allows anyone in the party to have conversations with a few people at a time, and see who else is having conversations and go join their conversation. It’s driven by the participant, not the host. (Although there are some host options available).

Check it out, for free, at https://virtualhappyhour.app.

Dan’s Diet

This app is in the works, was put on hold when COVID hit as I shifted to Virtual Happy Hour.

I created this for my good friend, Dan. He sometimes has some weird dietary requirements. I cook dinner a lot with him, and have spent much of my prep time asking what he can and cannot eat. This app is designed to allow him to specify what he can and cannot eat, and specify substitutions as well.

As I’ve been building it, I started thinking about parents, and that is where I think this app will really shine. Many children have allergies and restricted diets. This app will allow a parent to specify a child’s diet and then share it with their family and friends, or even a babysitter or nanny.

It’s not hosted yet, but will be coming soon, hoping before the end of the summer 2020.

But wait, there’s more!

I have a couple of other small ideas like these I’ll be working on the coming months.
