Hi. I'm Andrew. You can refer to me as the slug. I like to sharpen my knives...

I used to be a software engineer by day. I worked in various languages. I had a lot of fun developing toys using Actionscript 3. I did way too much hackery in javascript before jQuery, ventured into the dark arts of EJBs with Oracle, eventually saw the light, and the Spring cleansed me. I have journeyed through makefiles, bat files, ant files, maven poms, Gradle files, and back home to maven poms.

Now I program things for fun by night. I write fewer toys and focus more on functional tools; attempt something new with every project. Anyone can ask me anytime for the story that led me to an opinion. Some might say I have many stories. In the future, I will still code for fun and might submit a pull request to an open-source project.


  1. A collection of git hooks and aliases to be pulled into a global location for git to reference.


  2. A maven command-line quickstart archetype that bootstraps my preferred common documentation and useful libraries into a project.


  3. A command-line application to manage the specification. Customized to fit my specific needs to run on a corporate machine with heavy restrictions.


  4. A command-line program to track player skill levels across various competitive games. Features discord integration and sqlite database.


  5. Transform a subset of the git changelog to format
