Maintained Projects

GopPy

GopPy (Gaussian Online Processes for Python) is a pure Python module providing a Gaussian process implementation which allows to add new data efficiently online. I wrote this module because all other Python implementations I knew did not support efficient online updates.

hyper-world

This weblog and website was not created in a single day and went through a couple of iterations in it’s already more than 10 years of existence. Basically, it all started when I was in the 7th grade. The school offered an “Internet club” where I learned a little bit HTML which I put soon to use in building my first small homepage. I could host in on tiny amount of web space of my Internet provider. Probably no one ever visited it and unfortunately no backup exists. I can only remember that it had a black background.

Unmaintened Projects

Annotated Shading Language (ASL)

This is an extension of the shading language. It allows to annotate shader variables with default values, allowed ranges, descriptions and can include other shader programs with a dependency mechanism. This capabilities were demonstrated in a simple shader based image manipulation program which generated its controls from those annotations.

A Connect Four game. It is possible to compete against another human at one computer or via a network connection. You can also play against a computer opponent. The game rules (like the number of rows and columns or the number of discs needed in a row to win) can be freely configured. This game has been developed for a project in an university course.
