About


Greetings! My name is Brian Evans. I am a southern California based developer. I love taking things apart and figuring out how they work. As such, coding is a natural fit for me.

I have spent the last seven years working with enterprise-level clients for a major player in the health insurance web space, three of those years in a leadership role. I found that I loved the parts of my job that had me coding, which led me to pursue further education in web development.

I'm hungry to learn more and gain more experience. I have loved all of the fascinating topics I have encountered so far (many of which are listed in the skills section of this website), and cannot wait to dive into my next big learning experience!

When not coding, I enjoy playing and recording music. I can also be found cooking luxurious meals for friends and family, hiking, or learning fun new things.

Inky


Inky: A lightweight wiki engine

GitHub Live Site

Inky is a Python wiki engine built using Bottle, a Python micro-framework. It is targeted at the Pirate Box system as an internal wiki to provide articles to users on topics relevant to the particular Pirate Box.

Inky is very lightweight and easily customizable through an simple to use config file. Deployment is simple and well documented for its use case. It features its own markup language layer, so as to prevent actual html making it into the wiki, and it transpiles between the two for display and editing. Recent project expansion includes: SQLite database and custom user authentication for administrators.

Axolotl


Axolotl

GitHub Live Site

Axolotl is a social messaging application. It is built on a Python back-end/server, with routing handled by Bottle (framework). Axolotl uses SQLite3 currently, with plans to port to mySQL once scaling becomes necessary. The front-end was coded in JavaScript, jQuery/AJAX, HTML5, CSS3, and Python-based templates via SimpleTemplateEngine.

The application feature set for alpha includes: posting, adding and removing fellows, creating and updating user bio, adding/updating a user image, delete account, visiting other users profiles, @ linking in posts to other users, secure login, persistent sessions, infinite scroll, and the beginnings of a REST api.

Yakity-Yak


Yakity-Yak

GitHub Live Site

Yakity-Yak is an anonymous chat room. The user interface is styled after Windows 95 and AOL, hopefully evoking a whimsical sense of nostalgia in users. User names, colors, and desktop backgrounds are persistent accross usage sessions. It is recommended to full screen the browser and hide the address bar/tool bar to get the most out of the retro desktop simulation.
