hello

I'm Reece Selwood. I do weird programming things in the UK. Check out the stuff to the left.

I'm currently studying for an MSc in Computer Science at the University of Kent.

so what can you do?

  • Python
    • I love it, probably a lil too much.
  • JavaScript
    • The langauge I write the most.
  • HTML/CSS
    • HTML5/CSS3 all that web 2.0.
  • C#
    • It's just good.
  • Lua
    • Clean and simple.
  • Perl/Obj-C/PHP/C/C++/AS3
    • I've written projects in these at one time or another.

I like data visualisation, especially making interactive web-based visualisations using d3.js.

I wrote this site for a friend back in 2010. It's pretty simple, all static HTML and no CMS but it's still going this many years later so I must have done something right.

IRC Stats

Up-to-date stats from an IRC channel. Just a little project to try out Raphael. I spend too much time on IRC.

AGDQ & SGDQ Stats

AGDQ (Awesome Games Done Quick) and SGDQ (Summer Games Done Quick) are speedrunning marathons held in the winter and the summer respectively. I made a simple page to track the number of viewers over time for SGDQ in 2013 and I've been iterating on it for each marathon since.

SGDQ 2014 Stats

This is a small iteration on the previous version. A new colour scheme and some minor optimizations mean it runs faster and has less gaps.

AGDQ 2014 Stats

The was the first version to use d3.js. I made it look all nice and shiny with a new-ish layout and a colour palette from Adobe Kuler. The backend was still quite wobbly so the graph has lots of gaps and strange data points.

SGDQ 2013 Stats

The original. This version used the Google Charts API. I wouldn't recommend it.
