Coding for tomorrow: Why is good code important?

"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

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

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...

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

V-REP, Gazebo or ARGoS? A robot simulators comparison
Let’s have a look at three commonly used open-source simulators for robotics: V-REP, Gazebo and ARGoS, to find out which one suits your project the best.
Designing Effective Roadmaps for Robotics Innovation
Automated factories, autonomous delivery drones, self-driving cars: these and similar technologies will soon touch every aspect of our lives. An engaging discussion about how these technologies are regulated and innovated took place at the IROS 2017 conference.
The Information-Cost-Reward framework for understanding robot swarm foraging
The Information-Cost-Reward (ICR) framework relates the way in which robots obtain and share information about where work needs to be done to the swarm’s ability to exploit that information in order to perform work efficiently in the context of a particular task and environment.
Behaviour-Data Relations Modelling Language For Multi-Robot Control Algorithms
Behaviour-Data Relations Modeling Language (BDRML) explicitely represents behaviours and data that robots utilise, as well as relationships between them. This allows BDRML to express control algorithms where robots cooperate and share information with each other while interacting with the environment.
Robot swarms in action
Watch e-puck robots collect resources and bring them back to base. While the previous simulation work helped us to learn a lot about the advantages and disadvantages of communication in swarms, doing similar experiments with real robots is already revealing interesting new things.
