Basketball Shootout

One of the coolest-looking projects I have made so far while interning at BSD Code and Design Academy has been a Basketball Shootout web app made with vanilla JavaScript.   The idea of the game is to teach kids a bit about velocity and projectile motion through them selecting a horizontal and vertical velocity to…

Perfect Memory Game – Python

The other day, I had a peer of mine send me a message asking me “What programming language should I use for [x]?” After inquiring further, it turned out that this student was analyzing the mathematics behind the classic “memory game”. For those unfamiliar with this game, essentially it follows that there are a number…

Excel Data Restructurer with Java

My mother is currently writing her dissertation for her Ph.D. in Accounting. She had some data in an Excel file that she wanted to turn into a “stack area graph” in Excel. However, the structure of her data had too many variables for the graph to be created through the raw data. She informed me…

Python Certificate Creation – ESF CoCo

Another task that was going to be tedious for my team organizing the ESF Computing Conference, as I mention in this post, was that we needed to give certificates of participation to all of the students who attended the conference. Since there will likely be over 100 students, writing out all of their names would…

Java Student Schedule – ESF Co Co

I am the Director of Workshops for the ESF Computing Conference taking place next weekend at South Island School in Hong Kong, and so we’ve been working hard in the past few weeks to get everything ready for the conference. As part of this, one of my teammates thought it would be a good idea…

Sword Duel

This app is a simple game where users can “duel” each other. Each player assigns perk points to themselves, and then the program executes a battle.

Pizza Pizza Pizza!

“Pizza Pizza Pizza!” is a simple app that I created to be used as a project to teach students about dictionaries, switch statements, and other basic concepts.

This app allowed students to select toppings for a pizza, and then have an image of a pizza pop-up a few seconds later.

Spotify API App

Another project that I worked on during my time at BSD Code and Design Academy was a simple Spotify API app. The purpose of this app was to allow users to search for an artist, song, or album, and then have Spotify communicate with the app to display 20 track names, album art covers, and 30 second audio clips.

GIF Slideshow

During my internship with BSD Academy, I built a simple project which allowed students to have a “slideshow” of GIFs with Swift.


myRecycle is an iOS app that encourages sustainable practices through incentivizing individuals to recycle. A user can collect points, level up, and even receive different ranks and awards for consistently recycling.

Chess with Java

For my Middle Years Program Personal Project, I decided to create a chess program using Java. It is a fairly simple program that just allows player vs. player interaction using Java Swing.
