OPEN SOURCE CONTRIBUTIONS

Below are some of my open source contributions, though each modest in scope. See my Github for more details.

Git

Corrected for a misfeature in which passing in an empty string as a pathspec matched all paths. First step consisted of a deprecation: see commit d426430e for details. Step 2 removes the warning and throws an error instead: see commit 9e4e8a64.

p5.js

p5.js is a visual language library. Coded the homepage feature sketch for the month of August 2016. Commit f9fb275. Also contributed as an educator: taught various classes on making art with p5.js.

Etherpad Lite

A realtime collaboration editor. Wrote an additional client-side hook with the goal of tracking visits via Graphite.

Ace Editor

Embeddable code editor written in JavaScript. Identified and fixed a text rendering error.
