This is the homepage to the interactive portion of my website! From here, you can get to various project I’ve worked on with some kind of interactive component - almost all of them apps using R’s shiny package. Below is a somewhat ordered list of all my projects right now.
Drum Corona International
This is my project simulating the 2020 DCI season (as there isn’t a real 2020 DCI season) using shows from the past!
2019 DCI Forecast
This is my forecast for the latest DCI season, based on data analysis of years dating back to 1995. 2019 was a banner year for the forecast model. The model, by the way, is open-source.
DCI Forecast History
This contains forecasts from a version of my DCI model all the way back to 1995. For older years, it contains a pared-down version of my forecast based on the more limited data I have available. More recent years have better, more detailed data and therefore I use my fully detailed forecast.
This project is basically deprecated - I coded it when I was a lot younger and dumber. It’s buggy. It doesn’t work with Go modules. However, I intend to update it in the next year as I have time. For now, you can check out the code on Github or check out my shiny demonstration to see if it magically works.
This relies on Rgo, and is sadly broken. However, it was a good use case and demonstration for Rgo, and I intend to fix it soon. It visualizes the connections between composers as revealed by the New York Philharmonic’s program data on github. The more composers were on the same program, the stronger the connection. It also features some pretty good social network analysis work, which I have gotten rusty at and hope to pick up again soon.
This is my project taking on the Electoral College, where I investigate how different ways states could allocate their electoral votes can affect elections. I re-run past elections from 1976 to 2016 under various schemes, and tie these schemes to fivethirtyeight’s forecast for 2020 to see what alternate realities of 2020 could look like.
