My Personal Projects

Danish Browser-based Viking Game

From January 2012 until May 2016 I was 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.

Role Playing Game (RPG) online

My first personal project was a forum like application for online role playing. The application includes:

  • Multiple characters per player (character creation)
  • A simple shoutbox
  • Off-game and in-game forums (showing either character name or user name as the author of posts)
  • Adventures for which players can sign their characters up
  • Simple private message system (both ingame and offgame)

Interesting Projects

This section briefly describes the larger projects that have been part of my undergraduate studies.

Test Driven Development of a simple Game

In the course Software Architecture we developed a simple version of the game Civilization using Java and JUnit for automatic testing part of TDD.

Web pages in Java and XML technologies

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.

Java compiler in Ocaml

For the course Compiling the objective was to implement a compiler for a subset of Java (JOOS, described here). The compiler was to be implemented in OCaml. The compiler supported almost all of the JOOS2 features. This also served as my bachelor project.

Offline Syncronization

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.
