New Projects that still need some work

DB Diagram

The goal of this project is to create a tool to allow the auto-generation of diagrams and documentation of database schema using tools like PlantUML or Mermaid and Markdown.

I’m currently targeting Dataverse and SQL Server.

MUD prototype

In college, I got into playing MUDs (Multi-User Dungeon) on the Internet. MUDs are text based online games that pre-dated and inspired the MMORPGs that exist today, such as World of Warcraft and EVE Online.

I had the idea to try to write my own MUD in C# to explore some ideas that I had, but as I explored the idea I realized that with the base game engine there were some other types of games/simulations that I’d wanted to try that this would also make possible.

Initial Goals are:

Later Goals:

Currently in Prototyping and Design Phase. I’ve gone through a few iterations of a storage layer in SQL Server and have notes on game mechanics and engine design.

Nested Data Tables

This is a project I created when I was writing a lot of jQuery.

DataTables is a really cool grid for displaying, filtering, organizing data, mostly used with jQuery.

My project is an extension that allows developers to create dynamic drill downs into child data.
