Things I know

Python My go-to language for personal projects.

Things I've made

LaTeX rendering microservice Takes in LaTeX and spits out PDFs or images. Free to use, with a simple, documented API.
Digital Whiteboard As if there weren't enough of these already. Uses socket.io for real-time communication.
