Here’s where I’ll post about my personal projects and activities. What kind of projects and activities? Well, just about anything that is worth mentioning.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Ambassador
Last December, 2010 I was chosen by Samsung MENA (Middle East and North Africa) to represent their new product – the Galaxy Tab – as an Ambassador. We were given the task of making videos and promoting the Galaxy Tab through our blogs, social networks and by viral marketing. Honestly, I really think the Galaxy Tab is an awesome product regardless of the fact that I’m a Galaxy Tab Ambassador.
You should have noticed that I have numerous posts about the Galaxy Tab on this blog. Furthermore, I have created a post to showcase the videos that I made for the promotion. You may view that post through here. You may also find my videos through my YouTube channel MaizConKarne.
I’d like to thank Samsung for giving me a chance to promote such a product. My Galaxy Tab is still working until now and I’ve learned a lot about Android and modding because of it!
Kanade Wage, Overtime and Resignation Benefits Calculator
Kanade is personal project that I’ve done as an experiment while I get my hands wet with programming using Microsoft’s C# language. Though not the first program I ever wrote in C#, it is the first I have written with WPF for its UI as well as with animations. The latest build 0.0.1.3 alpha (shown above) is functional already for its purpose.
I also made another application to try making an animated and non-windowed WPF UI. Though still called Kanade it functions differently, calculating resignation benefits based on my current employer’s policy.
I might merge the two apps into one in the future or maybe port the code to Windows Phone 8. I’m not yet sure what I might do to the code but for now it isn’t in my priority list.
A Hanafuda Koi Koi game for Windows 8/RT
I am currently working on a Hanafuda Koi Koi game for Windows 8 and RT. Progress is slow given that I’m writing it on my free time (which I rarely have nowadays) and because I’ve never really written a game before aside from a simple Tic-Tac-Toe game that I wrote in VB.Net many years ago. I can’t really tell when I’ll be done. Some code concerning certain aspects of the game have been written already but much of it is still in the planning stages. I do wish to complete and release it to the public though so stay tuned if you’re interested.
