Is GitHub your new CV? I don’t think it should be, since not everyone has the opportunity to work on open source (see Ashe Dryden for the reasons why), and most of my work is in private repos.
However I did put some fun stuff that you might like on my profile.
I forked NetSparkle because I had some requirements for a client program that weren’t easily met by the standard version.
• This version allows for a custom UI instead of the two Windows Forms dialog
• Allows for one-time check for updates instead of running on a loop
• Allows for custom configuration objects instead of reading/writing to the registry
• Refactored the diagnostic to use NLog instead of a custom filestream
• Refactored exiting the application to fire an event for shutdown instead of Environment.Exit
If you’re interested, perhaps look at some of the newer forks.
This one was kind of silly. I needed to convert all our
.mkv files to
.mp4 so that we could watch them on Apple TV and have the correct metadata (hint: use Plex instead). So I went back to 1998 and wrote a wrapper around AtomicParsley::Command for converting and adding metadata.
Remarkable useful for the job.
