Me riding a surfboard int the wind on some sand

Hi! I’m Richard.

This is my little bit of the internet. I’m hoping to post the occasional blog and some projects I’ve been working on.

ImgurMan Gets Some Food

The second in a series of blog posts about the process of building an imgur themed pacman clone. In this post we produce continue bootstrapping the game. In the end, imgur-man's maze is populated with some tempting looking food.

ImgurMan Stands Alone

The first in a series of blog posts about the process of building an imgur themed pacman clone. In this post we produce a "hello world!"; setting up the project structure and producing a simple static output.

Imgur Pacman

A while back @konman96 posted this gif on imgur. Pretty stylishly done. There was a fair amount of interest in the comments for an actual game, and I wanted to have a go. Turns out it's a bit harder than I thought. This is my third attempt at getting something going, and I'm going to wheel out some of the big lessons in project management that I've learned recently. I'll be blogging about the steps as I go.

CORS with Redmine

I mentioned in my last post that I was working on an AngularJS app that queries the Redmine API. In this post I talk about how I worked around the same-origin policy using CORS so that my colleagues could get involved in development without having to mess with scary servers and such.

Kanban with AngularJS

At work we've been experimenting with Agile software development methods. On the whole, I'm not completely convinced by the whole Agile hoo-ha. Neverltheless I decided to use it as an excuse to try building a little web app. Intoducing kanbanter, a terribly named javascript app using AngularJS and the redmine API.

New Site

I'm on my holidays and I thought I'd pick up the old site again. This time I've gone for a pretty Oh-My-God-I-Love-Github approach. Here I quickly run over what it's for and how it all works.
