MacOS Vue (2024-)

While working on a side project for my first novel, I realized it would be nice to have a simulation of a Mac OS environment, as functional as possible, to present some documents and informations. After looking around a little bit, all I could find was either a real MacOS remote access, which was far too much for what I needed, and obviously the corresponding expense. So I decided to build my own emulation, using Vue.js, as another practice training on Vue.

Laravel-GeoDB (2023)

So, starting working on my “P-xo” project, I realized I needed a way to show locations, starting with cities, states and countries. After a quick look around, and not wanting to aim directly at Google APIs at this time, I couldn’t find any obvious and decent package for Laravel that would help me offer the proper address selectors to users and so, I decided to try and build my own package.

Sphyn (2017)

Sphyn was the evolution of MC Roads into the wider audience of travelers. The site was build to satisfy two goals:

  • allow travelers to share their travel through maps and pictures
  • allow travelers to find accommodations, similarly to AirBnB or CouchSurfing

MC Roads (2016)

I got my motorcycle license in 2016, and bought my first motorcycle. I started making nice rides around BC with friends, and saw some sites that were suggesting nice rides. Unfortunately, the sites were usually build with a complex UI, not really intuitive or convenient, so I decided to build my own site, and called it MC Roads (“Motorcycle Roads”) and bought the domain name to go with it.

HomeConnect (2015)

After my GarageDoor project I started considering building several devices that would be interconnected through a central device, and would control doors or lights.

PeerJuice Jobs (2015)

While working at Lasso, I realized that LinkedIn wasn’t so useful as it could be for job seekers. Something I didn’t like with LinkedIn was, most of recommendations were useless, just giving unrealistic expectations of candidates, thanks to their previous employer/coworkers/friends who would post excessively positive reviews of them.

Garagedoor (2014)

My house had an old garage door system, with mostly a push button that would alternately open or close the door. Even though this was enough for common use, I wanted to be able to open the door remotely when coming back home by car or on the motorcycle, without having to first enter the house to open the door.

Print On Demand (2004-2005)

Following my experience editing and publishing, I decided to investigate if it would be possible and lucrative to manage print-on-demand in Brazil, for Brazilian authors, the same way CafePress or Lulu manage it for North American writers. This included checking local editors and printing industry.

Geocities Website (1997-1999)

In 1997, I had already gotten familiarized a lot with the Internet, after 3 years working at CEGEDIM with dial-up modem connections, and currently working at SITA/Equant, a giant worldwide telecom provider present in more than 220 countries at the time, so strong of my experience with HTML/CSS, I started building my own website on GeoCities.

BBS (1994-1995)

As a recent father, but still quite vested in computers and networks as hobbies, and still without Internet available, I decided to build a BBS and connect it to other BBSes in the area, to exchange information and news.

Sook, Minitel Server (1989-1992)

This project started after I discovered you could run a minitel server out of your Atari ST computer, just needing the Minitel1, a free terminal France Telecom was distributing at the time to phone subscribers, and a simple RS232 cable to connect it to the computer.
