### Code
-* [__Firescraper__](http://firescraper.herokuapp.com) - Rails app that tracks wildfires in California. Built with Rails, Mechanize, Sass, d3.js and leaflet. Deployed for *$Free.99* on Heroku (*slow page load though*). This app uses a ton of rake tasks to scrape the [CAL-FIRE](#) website and build a basic API out of the page. [Source on Github](http://github.com/aboutaaron/fire-scraper).
+* __Proper Coffee__ - A Backbone app that displays proper ratios for espresso drinks. This app combines my love of coffee with my love of code. While the app is still a work in progress, the code is on Github. Take a look. [Source on Github](http://github.com/aboutaaron/proper-coffee).

+* [__Firescraper__](http://firescraper.herokuapp.com) - Rails app that tracks wildfires in California. Built with Rails, Mechanize, Sass, d3.js and leaflet. Deployed for *$Free.99* on Heroku. This app uses rake tasks to scrape the [CAL-FIRE](http://www.fire.ca.gov/) website and build a basic API out of the page. I'm currently refactoring this code and plan to relaunch soon with fires from 2013. [Source on Github](http://github.com/aboutaaron/fire-scraper).
* __ClearCache.js__ - Bookmarklet to clear page cache. Mostly used by me for production speed at [Los Angeles Times](http://latimes.com). Drag to your browser's bookmark bar and click on it to ... *clear the cache.* Click on it here for a demo __>>__ <a href="javascript:(function(){document.body.appendChild(document.createElement('script')).src='http://aboutaaron.com/js/clearcache.js';})();" class="btn btn-mini">Drag this</a>
-* [__Awards Calendar__](http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/#title) - I was asked by Times Entertainment staff to build a calendar that staff and readers could use to keep track of upcoming award show events. I took this opportunity to build something with [Tabletop.js](http://builtbybalance.com/Tabletop/). Since the app is powered by a Google Doc spreadsheet, web producers and reporters alike — or really anyone who can update an Excel spreadsheet — can update the app.
+* Event Calendar__ - I was asked by Times Entertainment staff to build a calendar that staff and readers could use to keep track of upcoming award show events. I took this opportunity to build something with [Tabletop.js](http://builtbybalance.com/Tabletop/). Since the app is powered by a Google Doc spreadsheet, web producers and reporters alike — or really anyone who can update an Excel spreadsheet — can update the app. I've recently begun porting the app over to use the Times' spreadsheet tool [spreadsheets.latimes.com](spreadsheets.latimes.com). Link coming soon.

+* __Box Office__ - I wrote a small Sinatra app that generates interactive charts based on weekend domestic box office estimates. The final chart is embedded within the Sunday box office story written by Times' Company Town reporters ([example](http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/cotown/la-et-ct-box-office-jack-giant-slayer-20130303,0,682372.story)). The app uses Miso Dataset, Highcharts and Amazon S3.
* [__Tagged Corporate Site__](http://about.tagged.com) - While working as a marketing intern for [Tagged, Inc](http://tagged.com), I was asked if I wanted to take a stab at redesiging their aging corporate page. I worked with the design firm [RHDG](http://rh-dg.com/) on the look and feel of the site. From there, I took their PSD files and used the excellent [Roots WordPress framework](http://www.rootstheme.com/) to bring the designs to the web. This was my first forary into client web work.
