Here are a few things I’ve built recently. I encourage anyone who’s curious to dig in and figure out a new tool or app. Making something that you can share with the world–however simple it may be–is deeply satisfying.
My podcast where guests and I riff on the meaning of work and the Good Life. Coming March 2020.
A bot that collects pithy quotes submitted by my friends and I into an Airtable base, then posts them to Twitter via a Zapier integration. You can submit a quote here if you have a good one that comes to mind!
Scott Reads Poetry
I read poems for your enjoyment. The goal is to test my equipment and learn how to produce a podcast. I’m currently using Anchor.fm to publish the recordings. Check out my readings, and let me know what you think!
A no-code mobile app I built using Glide that lists name, location, and contact info for all local breweries in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Users may save Favorites and to post reviews of each establishment. This was a fun mini-project! You could very easily make one for your town by cloning my app. Look for a tutorial soon!
I built my wife a portfolio website on Wordpress. An embedded Airtable allows her to quickly update lists of published poems and articles. She’s also able to collect signups to her newsletter, Word Hoard.
Days Until Christmas
This one’s silly. I built Twitter bot that posts, daily, the number of days remaning until Christmas.
