I have been programming for more than 10 years. Over the time I've developed various projects in my free time. The ones I'm not too ashamed of are listed here. Unfortunately, more recently I haven't had as much time, nor too many ideas.

Turmites

Simulation I wrote while in highschool. Turmites are infinite bidi­men­sion­al Turing machines, with ori­en­ta­tion and a current state as well. One of the most well-known example of turmites is Langton's ant.

The simulation has the default rule set to Langton's ant.

Other in­ter­est­ing rules are: Counter, 4 Color sym­met­ri­cal, Fibonacci rectangle, Fractal-ish.

Kept from the past: "The simulation was tested on Chrome 12, Firefox 4.". Hehe.

Simple Calculator in Python

A Python program I wrote to learn about tokenizing and parsing a simple language and perform arithmetical calculations.

IM Log Processing

For a long time I kept most of my IM logs and the collection grew to a quite impressive size. I performed various analysis on it and I have open sourced the code.

Walter the Waiter

This is a robot I developed in a team of 5 for a university course. It was the most difficult course I did in university, but also the most fun. It involved hardware work and lots of fun software coding. Unfortunately, much information about the robot has been lost in hosting provider migration :(

ReceiptBudget

For my bachelor's degree I created an ap­pli­ca­tion that can do OCR on receipts and then show a nice dashboard of my expenses.

I also went to a com­pe­ti­tion with it and got first place. You can see my slides on slid.es.

The code is on GitHub. What is missing from there are the scikit-learn models for the character seg­men­ta­tion and recog­ni­tion, because the files were too large for GitHub.

Housing data scraper

When I moved back to Romania, I started looking to buy a house. I wrote a scraper to get data and I analyzed it. I even gave a talk about it at the local tech hub.

I hope I will be able to write more cool projects in the future!

Rust crawler

I wrote a crawler for my blog, in order to generate a static website from the Ghost instance. It was also a fun way to learn Rust.
