This section briefly describes the larger projects that have been part of my undergraduate studies.
In the course Software Architecture we developed a simple version of the game Civilization using Java and JUnit for automatic testing part of TDD.
For the course Web Technologies we created a simple online store with Java Servlets and JSP (Java Server Pages). The store was backed by a database which we could only communicate with through webservices using XML as the data format.
For the course Compiling we implemented a compiler for a subset of Java (JOOS, described here). The compiler was to be implemented in OCaml. We supported almost all of the JOOS2 features in our compiler. This also served as our bachelor project.
A project for the course Experimental System Development to syncronize online files accessed from a webservice to the user's local harddrive. The syncronization is supposed to happen automatically running as a background process, so the user never has to think about keeping files up-to-date. We created a Java GUI to display the files using Apache Pivot. We also made a fulltext search feature for PDF-files using Apache Tika PDFParser and Apache Lucene. The project is available on GitHub as an open source project: Java GUI for syncronizing project.
Since january 2012 I have been the lead developer of Heroes.dk. I have made some changes to the current implementation in ASP Classic (VBScript) and Microsoft SQLServer, but my main objective is to rewrite the whole game from scratch in C# ASP.NET MVC still with Microsoft SQLServer as the backing storage.
The game has peak times where the page loads are massive, so the parts of the game used during those peaks need extensive performance optimization to reduce lag.
My first personal project was a forum like application for online role playing. The application includes:
The current production version can be found at KD.Kilenna.dk and is implemented in pure PHP and MySQL.
Development of a newer version using a PHP MVC framework and TDD has been ongoing for years, but is currently not developed actively due to focus on studies and other projects.
September 2010 - present: Working as a lead developer of web solutions primarily based on Joomla and Magento. I have developed several extensions for both frameworks to use on client websites.
