80s Joke Line

My friends and I built an 80s Joke Line for a hackathon event here in Toronto. You can call in to hear a joke and then share one of your own. It's cobbled together using Flask (a Python web framework) and APIs from Twilio and Soundcloud. The code is on GitHub. We are a bit short on jokes. Maybe you can help with that. [more inside]

DaveDaveFind: Built with Udacity

I just finished the excellent CS101 course at Udacity, which promised I'd learn to build a search engine in seven weeks. I was skeptical, but sure enough, I did! This very simple search engine is based on the code I learned in class, and searches the Udacity course materials. While building it, I also learned to use the Bottle web framework and Google App Engine. I kept a blog with lots of details here. The next round of classes starts tomorrow, so I thought I'd post this here and encourage anyone interested in learning to build their own to sign up.

Hammer Principle is a site a friend and I created a while back for comparison of different programming languages along different axes. It's since expanded into a variety of other areas, including databases, martial arts and gin (the gin one is sadly very unloved). [more inside]
