    Use a Windows/OSX like GUI in the browser to share files cross OS privately. No cloud, no server, no third party.

    I am currently working on this.

    The application inverts the web.

    The application is written in TypeScript/Node but that’s not what’s most important. Most important is an understanding of services and distribution cross OS. I started with the file system then I built a text messaging component and now I am working on video calls. Next I want to work on application distribution such that you can execute applications on your remote devices from the local GUI that the stdin from the callbacks allows for distributed task orchestration that non technical people can arrange.

  • Akka

    Build highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications on the JVM

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
