Internal Tools for Whitepages.com
At Carnes Media, we were under a weekly retainer to work on specific internal tools for whitepages.com. Because we had regular time to work on it, I was able to refactor the parts that were hard to change. Eventually, we had an application with solid test coverage that was easy to add complex logic to quickly.
Ember Data Url Templates
I wrote an RFC to include url templates in Ember Data (https://github.com/emberjs/rfcs/pull/4). As per usual in the Ember community, it was suggested that I write an addon to see if there was interest. There has been interest, and ember-data-url-templates is within the top 100 Ember addons on Ember Observer.
I lived on a boat for a while in Bellingham and frequently found myself curious what the wind gust speeds were. A company near the marina (Bellingham Cold Storage) publishes data every 5 minutes from their small weather station and I used to try to load the textual data to get that wind speed. Weatherham reads and archives that data from and puts it on a graph.
