Clean, powerful code for projects big and small.

My name is Joshua Kevin Goldberg, and I am a member of Rennselaer Polytechnic Institute's Class of 2015, majoring in Computer Science. This is my website, which showcases some of the bigger projects I've done. I've been doing code work since middle school, and a side of graphic design since high school.

For some cool programming tidbits, check out my blog!

Full Screen Mario .com


Full Screen Mario is my open source HTML5 remake of the original Super Mario Brothers. You can play the original levels, literally millions of procedurally generated maps, or create your own using the level editor.

The public site for this project received almost 2.7 million unique visitors before being closed by a DMCA notice from Nintendo. The coding project lives on, and is continuing from my contributions to become a JSON-based game framework for retro games.

RPIBookSwap .com


BookSwap is an elegant service to keep track of books and book transactions. Key innovations of the project are recommendations of exchanges to users based on others who want to buy or sell the same books as them, notifications via social media, and secure integration with the Google Books API.

The goal of this project is to create a user-friendly exchange that non-technical college students will feel comfortable placing entries and searching within for their new and used textbooks. I am the team leader for this RCOS project, currently in a beta release this summer.

Full Screen Pokemon .com


As my 2014 April Fool's joke, I pretended to release FullScreenPokemon online, and promoted it on Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, and campus posters & word of mouth. The site got 50,000 hits on the 1st and 25,000 more the following days. It's actually an elaborate rick roll and was a lot of fun to set up.

I'm currently working on improving FullScreenMario's engine so it can be used for other games (like Pokemon and Zelda), but that won't be ready for a very long time.

Schalk Lab


I started web work in the summer of 2012 for this neuroscience laboratory by creating the public website and private wiki, and the following winter I developed a PHP/JS/MySQL user management app. Last summer I migrated the app to an internal NAS and created a MatLab program to manage data on lab subjects and data collection runs generated by BCI2000 in a MySQL database in a metadata-searchable form.

The most well-known public contribution of Schalk Lab is BCI2000, a general-purpose system for brain-computer interface (BCI) research.

CS Tutoring


I am one of ALAC's Computer Science drop-in tutors for the Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters. We offer tutoring services free of charge to all students starting the second week of school, 8-10pm Sunday - Thursday in Sage 5510. Students in all 1000-4000 level undergraduate courses are welcome to attend!

I tutor on Mondays and Tuesdays. In the past I also was a private for-pay tutor, but do not have the time this semester.
