Coding for tomorrow: Why is good code important?

Web applications Objective-C Matlab Java C++ ActionScript Date: 27/01/2017 :: 0 comments

"Why should I care about how my code is written, as long as it works?" I will argue here that well-structured and well-written code not only saves time on a project, it also helps you to invest your time in a way that is meaningful for your future work.

How I Added My Twitter Feed

Web applications Date: 18/08/2012 :: 0 comments

Following my decision to leave Facebook, I have decided to start using Twitter more as a means of exchanging information with my friends. Adding a Twitter feed is pretty easy as Twitter does not require you to authenticate so you can just ask for N latest tweets using an ordinary GET request.

Why I Left Facebook

Web applications Date: 02/08/2012 :: 4 comments

I decided to delete almost all my activity and all my photos from Facebook when they announced that Timeline would become compulsory. While I really think that Timeline is a bad idea as it lets your history be browsed in a very easy manner, this was not the only reason I left...

The website is launched!

Web applications Date: 27/12/2011 :: 1 comment

I finally launch my new web site. This version has a new design and is made using PHP (CodeIgniter) and JQuery in order to support mobile devices.

Kinect-Controlled News Feed

Web applications C++ Date: 21/06/2011 :: 0 comments

During my work for Edelman Digital in 2011, I took part on a C++ project to create a program that could display user’s Facebook and Twitter feeds and was controlled by hand gestures captured by a Kinect device connected to a PC.

A Particle System

Flash ActionScript Web applications Date: 23/03/2008 :: 0 comments

This is an example of a Flash particle system, where basic behaviour of one particle (e.g. follow mouse, disappear slowly, etc) is specified. A number of particles are created each frame, providing interesting effects.

Quote calculator

Flash ActionScript Web applications Date: 03/02/2008 :: 0 comments

The quote calculator was implemented on one of my former web sites from when I was a freelancer. User can specify parameters like type of web site, extra features, number of forms, etc. and get immediate quote estimation.

Shopping cart

Flash ActionScript Web applications Date: 05/12/2007 :: 1 comment

This shopping cart was incorporated in a HTML web site. User can create several bags, change their styles and drag-and-drop items into them. Clicking on items displays their information. A list of items in the bag is provided along with a subtotal updated each time an item is added.

Reminder widget

Flash ActionScript Web applications Date: 02/11/2005 :: 0 comments

This small Flash application shows the time and date. It also lets user set up a reminder for a certain time with specified text. The widget could be used on community web sites or in user areas.

pyCreeper

The main purpose of pyCreeper is to wrap tens of lines of python code, required to produce graphs that look good for a publication, into functions. It takes away your need to understand various quirks of matplotlib and gives you back ready-to-use and well-documented code.

Designing Robot Swarms

This project looks at the challenges involved in modeling, understanding and designing of multi-robot systems.

Robustness in Foraging E-puck Swarms Through Recruitment

Swarms of five e-puck robots are used in a semi-virtual environment, facilitated by the VICON positioning system. Recruitment can make swarms more robust to noise in robot global positioning data.

Information Flow Regulation in Preferentially Foraging Swarms

Swarms are tasked with foraging from multiple sources in dynamic environments where source locations change periodically. Preferential foraging leads to a better swarm performance, provided that information flow among robots, that results from recruitment, is regulated

Citations count fails to measure the impact of research

Academic career progress is often judged by so-called "h-index", that measures how much your research is being cited. I recently had a detailed look at what exactly the citations, specifically those reported by Google Scholar, amount to. Only a relatively small fraction of the reported citations corresponded to research being applied or reproduced in a meaningful way.
