Built during Hack Nights of the Las Vegas Ruby Group, this application was created to help manage and incentivize members who give presentation to the group.
Members can submit a topic they would like to see covered at an upcoming meetup, vote which ideas are best and volunteer to give a presentation.
A points system (gamification) was included to track and reward those who contribute most.

Project maintained, but I am longer involved.
Built during a 48 hour hack-a-thon with 3 others and select as a winner of the 2012 Rails Rumble, My Best Drink allows users the ability to share drink recipes and vote on which ones they like best. My primary role on this project was on the back end development.
One interesting aspect of this application is the notion of guest accounts. First time visitors are able to perform any action before registering for an account.
