Who am I?

My name is John Ernest Amiscaray. I'm a second year computer science student at Ryerson University (name change pending). I'm passionate about programming spending hours on it on most days to hone my skills. Currently, I work part time as a technical writer and peer reviewer for Section's engineering education program. On my free time I'm a bit of a gamer and enjoy singing.

Projects

Scripting Siege

This was perhaps my most ambitious project which was created for the Google Solutions challenge. This project was created to help people learn basic Javascript and general programming in the form of a video game. For this project, I've developed a scratch-like pseudo-programming language specifically for the game. Additionally, I help implement the page design using HTML and CSS and assisted in further application logic. Check it out here!

Sassy Spring

This project was created for a university course on web development that I recently completed. My partner and I created a tutorial website talking about the basics of Spring Framework and Sass along with a full demo. Check it out here!
