Awesome Projects (chronologically):

Svedersoft and F.I.A.R

An iPhone game of Four In a Row I wrote after getting released from the IDF (September-October 2009). The game was written mostly in a week, and then was polished for a month, including great graphics from a friend.

GDG Tel Aviv

The Tel Aviv branch of the GDG user group – the second largest after GDG San Francisco – with 2500 members and tens of events.

Trello Calendar Feed webapp

Open source project I created in the early days of Trello that used card due dates to create an iCal feed you can subscribe to and see the upcoming cards in your calendar. It had about 1500 users at its peak but is now deprecated as Trello finally added that feature.

Pocket Skipper webapp

Alternate reading list to Pocket’s (previously read it later) that skips their “Article View” and goes straight to the article. It evolved to a nice UI for it that I greatly prefer over theirs.

Red Color Map

Made during the 2012 conflict between Israel and militants in the Gaza Strip this shows the missile attacks on Israel on a map. It was made during one day and is now deprecated as during the most recent (2014) conflict other people have taken over and created more apps.

Mortal Kombat Punching Dummy – Geekcon 2014 project

Two punching dummies we rigged with pressure sensors and connected to a game of Mortal Kombat. Two people can then spar with the dummies while controlling their Mortal Kombat characters and fighting one another on screen. Made during three intensive days.

Random stuff:

  • Riding Israel – A biking blog (in hebrew) with 8 whole posts by a friend named Shay and me.
