Exploring Winnipeg Parks

Emblem for the Exploring Winnipeg Parks website

Exploring Winnipeg Parks aims to become a comprehensive resource for Winnipeggers, and visitors to the city, looking to find parks for their family outings. This website provides maps, transportation information, photo galleries, and links to external resources for public parks in the city of Winnipeg.

As of July of 2023, Exploring Winnipeg Parks has been moved to its own dedicated domain. Follow the Exploring Winnipeg Parks facebook page for more photos and updates!

As a nice little tie-in with the Web Development section, I also have a guide planned for the wonderful Leaflet map API.

Short Satirical Films

Satirical films made primarily with Moviestorm! As the channel grows, you'll find plenty of one-off videos with my take on contemporary events. The flagship series will be centered around a fictional news station named No Details News.

Web Development

At the initial launch, this website consisted of static HTML and CSS. My web host provides scripting with PHP, which I'm now using to gather content from external sources such as Medium , GitHub , and Youtube .

Check out my web development blog for ongoing techie guides.

Trading and Investing

Having resigned my position as a software developer, I needed a way to mitigate the downward trend that will be coming soon to my bank account. 😅

I've started a new Youtube channel called Riley's Trading Post that will focus on the Canadian stock market. My first video is up, and takes you through some of the online resources available.

I'm fairly new to investing, but have spent plenty of time the past few months searching for good-quality resources to expand my knowledge:

  • What are the different types of accounts available in Canada?
  • What trading platforms are available?
  • What is an ETF (Exchange Traded Fund), and what fund companies are out there?

I'll be tackling all of these topics, along with chart analysis of Canadian stocks.
