My Projects and Achievements


Ikeaify can only be explained as a project that came out of a sleepy haze one evening. Enter a word, and Ikeaify will try to morph it into what would sound like an Ikea product. Not affiliated with Ikea.


Invoices are a pain, especially for freelance developers. From calculating the amount of hours that you've put into a project, to creating the actual invoice and doing design work, most developers would rather do something else. Waltz lets a developer run a few commands to create an invoice for their next freelancing gig with ease.
