thekendall.io

Yes, this very website was created by me. No, it's not running Wordpress. This project is easily one of my favorite projects because it allows me to encompass a lot of what I've learned about computer science and the web to showcase what I do. It is a platform for experimention and is as dynamic as I am. Check back in a year this page may be completely different. This site uses Django, Jquery, Bootstrap, and code written by me.

SnapIt 2.0

Towards the end of my run at the Children's Creativity Museum (CCM) I became the developer of a permanent exhibit called SnapIt. Well actually SnapIt 2.0 since original SnapIt (Original name unknown) was an original exhibit at the CCM when it first opened in 1998 as the Zeum. I remembered using the exhibit as a kid and it was an honor to give new life to the dyeing exhibit.

Sucros3D

This research project was started by the folks at the SME UC Davis Chapter. The goal of the project was to give SME members the opportunity to learn more about Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) in a hands-on project. The hope was to research, design and build a 3D printer that could print with Sucrose (sugar) hence the cheesy name. We did a lot of research about the different processes of Additive Mfg and began to design.
