Hi, I'm Beer

Here you can find my work & thoughts

🧑‍💻 My Work

Helping to create endpoints using serverless tech for smooth user experiences on web-shops hosted through the Shopify platform.

As a Hobbyist

Producter

Techs: React, Firestore, TypeScript

It's hard to have a single-source-of truth for Product Teams that doesn't grow to a mess. I set out to fix that.

🥶 Maybe I'll pick this up again one day, currently focused on my work.

Who is Playing?

Techs: React, TypeScript

Why not listen to who is playing instead of read up on it? Makes picking a party for the evening much easier.

⚰️ Shutdown because SoundCloud closed it's streaming API.

MixMerger

Techs: Node.js, TypeScript, Java, Fourier Transformations

Using the fact that songs appear in multiple mixes, you can create infinite mixes by merging where they play the same songs.

⚰️ Shutdown because I over-engineered the Fourier Transformations to detect overlapping songs. If I would pick this up again I would first mechanical-turk the tool.

Transcendance

Techs: Unity3D, C#

VR allows you to truly be immersed with music. I created a prototype, released on the Oculus forums, which got picked up by one of the main VR youtubers back in 2013.

🦸 Since I was a student never intended to take it further, but the positive reactions made me consider this a success!
