Martha Megarry

I am a software engineer, designer, artist and musician from Minneapolis, MN. I have a passion for learning new things and writing awesome code. I am especially interested in games, the web and robots. A third grader once described me as "more hilarious than a banana in the sky" and I love bugs (except in my code). Let's connect!

Team Claw -- Claw Breaker

Role: Programmer

At the 2015 Midwest Game Jam we made a head to head crab fighting game because everyone has secretly always wanted to play a crab that can cut off another crab's pinchers! I pair programmed the ability to move the crab's arms, shoot them out at the other player and cut the other crab's arm off. Now we are working further on the game and will be releasing it on Steam. You can get into the crab fighting action early and download the jam version (called Krustacean Kombat) below. Enjoy!

Tapestry Folkdance Center

Role: Lead Developer/Designer

Tapestry Folkdance Center needed a new website to draw in new dancers that was easy for staff to update and maintain. With the help of a member of the community I built Tapestry a solution using WordPress with a custom child theme. This new site is helping bring in a younger crowd of dancers by being easy to read on any device and being attractive and colorful with photos and videos of the dances and an updated color logo. Now Tapestry has the tools to attract new dancers so they can be ready for the next 30 years. Happy Dancing!
