Hi, I'm Dylan Pierce

I like to build all sorts of things, mostly software.

Building a Glass River Table

I built a custom river table with live edge wood, shaped glass and metal legs. This project took me the better part of a year and is now my personal desk.

MirrorMirror - a DIY Smart Mirror

America's first DIY Smart Mirror.

MirrorMirror was one of the first smart mirror builds. It featured a 2 way mirror that hid a full display of “widgets”. It showed things like a daily compliment to my wife like: “You look especially amazing today”.

Tiny House Build & Journey

I built a tiny house with my wife and then travelled across the country in it.

My wife & I build our own tiny house on wheels and travelled across the country in it for 2 years while working full time jobs. We lived and played in places like Georgia, Florida, Montana & Washington. The best time of our lives.

PHP to Ruby

Learn Ruby syntax & concepts from rhyming PHP examples.

Learn Ruby efficently and quickly from PHP concepts you already understand. This e-course is a collection of all of the lessons that I wish someone would have shared with me while I was transitioning from PHP & Laravel development to Ruby on Rails.
