Kurt Peters

Web Developer

About

Hello! I'm Kurt Peters, a web developer in the Seattle, WA area since 2012. Through both my professional and personal work, I have experience in both front- and back-end technologies such as HTML, JavaScript (and jQuery), CSS, ASP.NET (C#), PHP, and MSSQL/MySQL. I find coding enjoyable and taking on new things can be rewarding and a great learning experience!

Projects

Map to Globe

HTML5 | CSS | Node.js | JavaScript

A tool that allows your to upload an image and see it overlayed on a sphere (i.e. a globe). It has since ballooned to include map projection switching, a generator, animation, atmosphere, and simple sketching. My most recent update converted this from a static site to a node.js backend to allow for a more robust "saving" feature.

Scotch Malt Map

HTML5 | CSS | JavaScript

Made for Reddit's /r/scotch community. The original was just a static image, and searching for text on the page wasn't possible. It's now grown to include prices, reviews, and location map/filter.

RPN Calculator

HTML5 | CSS | JavaScript

A pretty simple calculator, written in JavaScript. But it uses RPN notation.

Chessable (Part-Time)

PHP | HTML | CSS | JavaScript

On ocassion, I have contributed new features and improving existing ones like improving the leaderboards functionality and improving the chessboard functionality and features on various pages throughout the site.

Simple Chat

HTML5 | CSS | Node.js | JavaScript

My first project using node.js. A pretty basic chat program.

Weather

HTML5 | CSS | JavaScript

A simple page that shows your local weather with a pretty picture based on the current conditions. Uses wunderground.com's API.

Solar System

HTML5 | CSS | JavaScript

My first real project. I wanted something to show the solar system to some sort of scale.
