||As I've stated in other
locations on this site, I am a Software Developer. I do this both in
my free time and for a living. This place on the web is dedicated to
that aspect of my life.
My most recent software engineering feat is a Tournament Making program that allows the user to create and run their own tournaments without the need for paper brackets, the hassle of late comers, the headache of creating and seeding players and byes. Previously the Tournament Maker was in a beta phase for version 2.0 for approximately a year and a half. The latest version of the Tournament Maker is version 2.1, instead of a mass beta release like 2.0, I had a select few people beta test this version before I released it. This was a much more manageable and successful beta test, and I very much appreciate all of the beta testers involved and the great ideas, and bug fixes that were offered.
When the Tournament Maker started it was created specifically for video game tournaments, now, the Tournament Maker can be used for any game that requires a double or single-elimination style "knockout bracket." Most notably NCAA style tournaments can be run with this application. Included with the application is a sample NCAA bracket based off of the NCAA Mens Basketball Tournament for 2006.
Plans are in place for future updates to this software including but not limited to adding additional tournament types like Round Robin, score keeping, and internet friendly output.
For projects that I completed on the job (not in my spare time) see the my resume. Obviously work programmed while at work is property of that company so it can't be available for download here. Besides who'd want it? It's company specific.
