Fox Row Rowing, computers, astronomy


My name is Ryan Fox. I develop software and (formerly) rowed competitively at the University of Wisconsin and on the US National Team.


I currently work with image processing and computer vision. This is useful for things like handwriting recognition, photo stitching, object tracking, and more. For an idea of the kinds of things I work on, a good place to start is Drone Stable, a video processing app for aerial video, this conference talk I gave on computer vision, or Retread, a project I made to detect duplicate video frames.


If those sound interesting to you, check out the standing invitation or email me (ryan@ this domain). I do software consulting as well, and am available for hire. Please email me for more information.


I have several tools to help rowers and coaches. Check out the online strokewatch here. I also run a more advanced application that helps coaches and athletes improve performance via erg score tracking. It’s called Fast Ergs. It comes with a free trial, so don’t hesitate to give it a shot if you’re a coach or rower.


Needs More Lens Flare is an app I made to automatically put a lens-flare effect on an image. For the inner JJ Abrams in all of us.


In addition to my software projects, I occasionally write about what software I’m working on here. If you have questions or comments about anything, shoot me an email. I actually enjoy getting emails from people interested in computers or rowing, so reach out.
