The majority of my personal projects are purpose built solutions, where I am user (and know exactly what my requirements are :P)
"VisionScreens" is a new-ish project, to build my own church presentation software. I plan to (at least) learn C#, WPF, Sqlite along the way. An alpha in maybe 2017/18 summer. I'm also keen to move (back) to Qt/Qml/C++ afterwards. (This idea has already been on the backburner for a few years.) I find UI design enjoyable - prototype screenshots are available here.
Apart from this project, I also have been learning web design on the side, which has come in handy.
Other stuff can be found on my GitHub, mainly stars for interesting projects. GitHub is a great place to find and share examples of code and usages of (obscure) libraries.
Oh, Uni. Maths, Physics, Electrical Engineering. As a computing student I was always more interested in the computing subjects. Uni projects included building a terrible Connect 4 game in Java, a processor with VHDL, DES encryption on a Zedboard, and building a scalable video transcoding service on AWS.
Some videos survived from Uni:
- A line-following robot using Lego NXT - From first year, when no-one knew anything about anything. I think the aim of the course was to stimulate team work?
- COMP2121 'Microwave simulator' coded entirely in AVR assembly code - From second year. Just the tip of the iceberg of "tedious project work". Sadly COMP2121 has been replaced for new students 🙁
Any software that I've released are fuuly certified:
* yes, this is a joke
