Pet Projects

DSe Engine - In the summer of 2010, I attempted to craft a 2D game engine using only the C Windows API, OpenGL, and OpenAL. In retrospect, the engine is guilty of several anti-patterns (God objects, etc), and a better understanding of linear algebra and the OpenGL pipeline would have done wonders at the time. Still, the project helped me to vastly improve my C++ skills, introduced me to the world of OpenGL, and taught me how to organize large projects. The Visual Studio solution includes a partial port of the first level of id Software's excellent 1990 DOS platformer, Commander Keen (which was also the first video game that I ever played).

Depixelization Demo - During the summer of 2011, I programmed a partial implementation of a pixel art vectorization algorithm described in a paper written by researchers Dr. Johannes Kopf of Microsoft Research and Professor Dani Lischinski of The Hebrew University. Here is an image showing a sample of the program's output, together with the original input image.

Current Projects

Computer Algebra System (2013) - I've recently begun creating the basis (no pun intended) for a computer algebra system which allows for the specification and manipulation of abstract rewriting systems, with the eventual goal of developing a prototype for a novel method of interacting with such systems. A reasonable amount of code is currently working, though it could use some optimization, and I haven't really begun work on the GUI part yet to see if it will be any good. I'll post code if this ever develops into anything interesting.

NEWe Engine (2013) - After studying abstract mathematics for the past two years or so, I'm ready to put my knowledge to work. I'm currently working on a from-scratch C+ game engine, which I intend to use for a side-project. Changes from my DSe engine include a more decoupled architecture, greater emphasis on support for concurrency, and a more general approach that will allow for the crafting of both 2D and 3D games. More on this to come.
