Some Coding Puzzle Exercises For Fun - Part 1

Sat, 02/10/2018 - 17:50

So,..I'm just following some of those YouTube videos describing various Google job interview tech questions and decided to see if I could reproduce them myself.

Fro my own experience I know that these questions are generally less about actually getting the question correct as much as how a developer approaches a problem...What they know about coding in order to approach the problem and how to ask questions to approach the problem.

Spotya! Your Data Manager CRM

Fri, 02/09/2018 - 08:29

The Spotya! Your Data Manager was a CRM I built in PHP using the Codeigniter framework. It was fully featured allowing customers to view their website analytics as well as create reports, sort and track customers based on their needs and more. The customer could either log into an interface that allowed them to switch between websites or they could view a light version of the interface on their website.

Animated Grass Coded Into Anim8or Using Game Maker Language

In the late 2000's I was really into 3D animation and making 3D games. I was primarily using a free program called Anim8or. The program saved its files as a readable text file that could easily be edited. Also, to program had some simple methods for morphing model animation. I decided to do a few experiments dynamically creating animation by combining the output of another program I was using at the time Game Maker.

Find The Length of a Coastline - Programming - Part 3

Sun, 12/17/2017 - 07:56

About a week ago I wrote an article where I hypothesized that I could find the length of a coast-line using an algorithm based on a map or satellite image.

This is part 3 of the programming part of that series.

The task here was to find individual sections of the image that represent islands or land-masses. This way I can target a specific land-mass to be measured and discard the rest. (Ireland, France, The Isle of Mann,...etc).

Inspired by this video I decided to make a good ole' spriograph program. It's true that I was playing around with these types of programs when I was like, 15...well to be fair I guess I started playing around with recursive for loops and writing vectors when I was like ... "8". But, I really didn't have a real understanding on what I was doing until my teen years after taking my first programming classes in junior high. Mr. Jones...Big guy.
