Hi! My name is Aidan Brady, and thanks for checking out my site!
I’m an independent software developer, rookie blogger, and currently-enrolled Georgia Tech student (class of 2020!) who dreams of founding a startup computer company someday. Over the years I’ve taken on too many projects to count, but below are a few of my favorites:
- Mekanism, a popular add-on for the video game Minecraft. Now nearly 200,000 lines of pure Java and downloaded more than 2,500,000 times, I’ve developed Mekanism both independently and with the help of some collaborators since late 2011. The project has given me valuable experience in game development, client/server networking and graphical design, and is still maintained today.
- Wordzie, a multiplayer vocabulary game for iOS. Originally a Swing-based Java executable I created to make my high school English class more enjoyable, the game allows users to compete in vocabulary trivia mini-games. Wordzie is developed in Swift and uses a Java socket backend developed from scratch.
- PeerChess, a multiplayer chess game that I created as a way to better understand peer-to-peer networking. Developed in Java, the game allows for two players to compete directly anywhere around the world without a server intermediary.
All my software is open source, and I encourage you to check out my work on my GitHub page.
At the moment, this website is my primary method of distributing my software, so take a look around! I also try to post blogs on a regular basis, but that doesn’t always happen. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me! All the information you need is located on the Contact page.
