Newo Brew

Newo Brew is a Node.js powered automated home brewing system. The brew controller runs on a Raspberry Pi and controls temperature, a wort pump, and valves to move liquid between kettles. The user interface is built with React and can be accessed from a browser on your phone or computer.

Indie 103.1 iPhone App

In late January of 2009 I wrote an iPhone application for a local Los Angeles radio station, Indie 103.1. This was soon after they went off terrestrial airwaves but kept the station streaming on the Internet. After the app was released, station management invited me on Joe Escalante’s Barely Legal Radio show to talk about it. The original application is open source and can be found on Google Code.
