I’ve been writing code professionally for over 10 years, but I started 18 years ago for fun. During that timeframe I have worked on quite a few personal to professional projects here are my top three ranked for coolness and recency:
This was probably one of my favorite projects to work on. The modern web is full of bloat and it was refreshing to see a company actively trying to reduce it. It was a lot of work and felt like for every two LOC added I worked to trim three, but after the project went into general availability for Enterprise customers we had the most fastest and smallest (~10kb gzipped) HTML5 Video player on the market.
P2P Hybrid Video Distribution
This project was a peer-to-peer hybrid (P2P/CDN) video delivery system based on the HLS protocol. It involved implementing an insect-based routing system a P2P and peer signaling service. I can’t talk much more about it, but in production networks it demonstrated a 20% reduction in CDN usage.
Elanthia Online Project
My nerdiest project consists of writing a public toolchain to help improve scripting in a text-based RPG called Gemstone IV. It uses Github and Travis-CI that accepts community contributions and publishes them to a remote script repository via a machine user. Previously it had been a persistent community problem where there was no good mechanism for collaboratively authoring scripts.

And a few more I really like to tinker in but have limited professional experience with:
