Here are some things I made in 2023:
- An Alfred workflow for purging Cloudflare’s cache
- A Chrome Extension for adding googly eyes to any webpage
- A tutorial video for building your own texture pack in Minecraft
- Let’s Get Creative
- A music box song for Mice on Venus (Minecraft)
- 18 blog posts on bryanbraun.com, including a four-post series about online media and RSS.
This year marked a slow return to some side-projects after a general haitus in 2022. I used AI to help me build the first two projects listed above, but the others were all me. “Let’s Get Creative” was the biggest and most satisfying thing I made.
I could also list things I made in the physical world but I haven’t done much of that, outside of house maintenance. I did do a lot of cooking this year and I while I don’t have much to show for it now, I’d like to believe that I learned some useful skills. I’m confident that any cooking skills I pick up will remain relevant far longer than my ReactJS skills.
New opportunities await. Here’s to 2024. ⛵️
