The aim of Speak-Up is to provide a platform for blogging and exchanging ideas as well as presenting photos and videos.

It is capable of integrating YouTube videos into discussions with a convenient hide/show interface. Users can make use of the popular board codes such as [IMG] or [B] to format their posts.

In Version 2.0 Speak-Up underwent a large number of changes. Users are now able to create their own discussion boards, style them the way they like and connect them to their website.

There is also a whole new bunch of features concerning the ways users can connect with each other on Speak-Up. The search feature has been completely rewritten. The photo albums have also undergone a number of changes, making them easier to handle and packing them with a few new features.

laby256Laby NG

Laby is a quite simple game programmed in Java.

The NG stands for “Next Generation”, because I already made a similar game called Laby some years ago.
In 18 different levels and 4 different stages you have to move your mouse cursor through a maze without touching the “walls”.

If you complete all the levels you might even find the large treasure that is hidden somewhere on the island.

The Java Diet Planner

A Java application that searches for different foods in a database and lets you save them in a personal list so you can keep track of what you are eating throughout the day.

Little Fireworks Simulation

When I was studying for my exams last year I developed this little piece of software. I mainly just did it to refresh my knowledge of particles and matrices again but in the end I found it so pretty that I made a video of it.


In our “Principles and Applications of Programming” class we worked on a little app in Java that would draw several colourful drops on the screen. It was the first graphical thing that we did in this class and I quite enjoyed doing it for that reason.
