Albert Gonzalez homepage
Hello! I’m Albert Gonzalez, a computer engineer from Barcelona. I drink coffe and code both for fun and living,
so check some of the projects I've been involved (mostly one-weekend hacks and stuff like that)!
I studied at UPC - FIB (Polytechnic University of Catalonia
- Barcelona School of Informatics) and I’m currently working at
The Hotels Network.
Stuff I do
I usually do stuff. You can find here what I’m doing now (or what I did in the past) and where.
Connecting a (S)NES Mini controller to an Arduino
Some notes and code snippets related to connecting a SNES/NES Mini Controller to an Arduino board
A jQuery plugin to turn an unordered list into a multiple selectable list. It started as an on-demand
plugin for some work-related issues and now is a more general utility.
Plugin for Chart.js to add labels between columns to show the % progress in the same dataset. Chart.js 2.6.0 or above required. Written as an on-demand
plugin for some work-related issues.
A jQuery plugin to create a selector for multiple date ranges. It started as an on-demand plugin
for some work-related stuff. (source, npm)
Albert Gonzalez Coffee Track
At some point I thought it was a good idea to build a custom PHP + MySQL site to track my coffee drinks. From a private area I can "check-in" a new
coffee and get some useless stats like frequency, average or the most consumed type of coffee. It's still operative but I don't update it anymore.
Action Movie Title Generator
It picks a bunch of cliches and action topics and creates a unique title and plot (pretty pointless but it was fun to write and read the results)
I like to poke around with things like the Pico-8 "fantasy console", a virtual system created to develop games with a
high retro style based both on the visual and the tech specs. On this system you write in some Lua-variant implemented by the creator.
- Wire-IT, co-created with a friend, a simple puzzle game
- Escape from planet X, an arcade game taht was submitted to a local game jam in itch.io
- My itch.io page with those games and other experiments (like some Game Maker stuff)
Besides from computers (but probably related in some geek way) I like to draw comic strips. Sometimes I upload new stuff for my webcomic,
htzcomic (only in spanish, at least for the moment).
