veni. vidi. verificavi.

Besides my work at Leica Geosystems, I’m still following the topic of automated generation and reduction of buggy OpenCL kernels. But unfortunately there hasn’t been much time to actively contribute the ongoing research. Some other hobby projects required some more attention after having been neglected for a while. For once there is SplitShow, a presentation tool for which I’ve taken ownership during my studies. It allows to distribute LaTeX beamer presentations (and lately PDFs in general) onto multiple display. For instance, it allows to show notes on the presenters laptop while projecting the presentation to the audience. Oh, and have you ever heard of Dobble and wondered how to construct arbitrary sets which follow the game’s rules? Or do you remember the Game of Life and think that such a classic game should be available on a real classic platform? And of course there’s always the one or the other thing that let’s you expand your horizon beyond computer science. I won’t spoil all the details right know but I’m hoping I will be able to add some more interesting stuff to the projects page in the future.

  • How to build a workbench in 60 seconds

    After moving to Zurich I was able to secure the cellar for myself to do some woodworking. Though, before doing some more “serious” work the first project was to build a large workbench. Buying one just isn’t an option if you look at the prices. And to be honest, for the few things I’m doing I don’t need a high-end 100% flat surface.

  • Dual-head presentation of PDF slides created with LaTeX's beamer class on Mac OS X

    A tool for the dual-head presentation of PDF slides on Mac OS X, most likely using a laptop and a projector. The project arose out of the need to correctly project slides created with LaTeX’s beamer class.

  • PBY Catalina

    Nearly every part of the fuselage had to be completely reconstructed after the plane has been destroyed in a crash.
