    My Projects


    Citizen Information Integration (CII) :

    This thing was my first conscious hack with a great project partner Manu Dixit. We were solving a problem that targeted integrating citizen informations. We made it our college project. I wrote code in jsp and used some open templates for interface. Read the full story here

    • Used technologies - JSP, Tomcat Web Server
    • Project aims to prepare a web interface for day-to-day services provided to the citizens from a governing body with strict permission and access layer implementation.
    Business Solution (bs) :

    This code has been my own itch. I started my coding practice with a stuff called foxpro [ :P ] in XI standard. Those days it was quite popular in my academic environment and used to develop some simple database applications. I was always mesmerized by bookkeeping tools and used to wonder around my father's official documents. I wrote some small projects those solved some of our headaches. That time KBC2 was around and once I developed such application in Foxpro that was randomly picking up a question from a text file, this thing motivated me but Foxpro was not the right thing to do. Once in my leisure during college time, I just picked up this task and wrote basic bookkeeping functions in PHP. This code has been messy and lacks framework style structure. I plan to re-factorize and modulate this code in some vivid framework.

    • Used technologies – PHP, MySQL, Apache Web Server
    • An accounting application with basic accounting functions.
    • Supports infinite level grouping of ledgers.

    3x3x3 Rubik's Cube Pattern Generator (Colors) :

    Rubik's cube has always been an intriguing thing for me. Once accidentally I confronted this puzzle. I found it simple at first sight but it was not [ :) ]. I kept trying, one day I solved it but it was still a puzzle as I didn't have not any logic. I started developing a procedure. I looked for repetitious patterns and went on and did it. Now my manual procedure can solve this 3x3x3 puzzle in less than seven minutes. Although this time is very far away from the world record but it works [ :P ] for me. Then it came the C++ era of my life and I wrote a small class that can hold a 3x3x3 rubik's cube and do all kind of rotating operations. I also wrote file handling classes to store its patterns. One of my contemporary wanted to develop a robotic hand project intended to solve rubik's cube. He came to know about me in college and approached. I wrote some brute force kind of algorithm, it is not good at solving but was well at generating database patterns. It is interesting to see patterns and how they repeat. I plan to study group theory and generators [ :p ] and will come with a killing algorithm [ :) ]

    • Used technologies – C++
    • An API for visual representation and transaction of any 3x3x3 rubik's cube.
    • A solution that generates all possible patterns for a particular deep level.
    • Also provides solving steps to any random pattern following Brute Force Solving strategy.
    • source code: http://code.google.com/p/colorcube
    Online puzzle hunt module and event – morse :'

    I have been involved in writing stuffs those work on black terminals [ :P ]. It was the web that fascinated me with the feel of projecting on some visual thing. I brought drupal in Feb 09 from Techkriti. I found this tool awesome. Online events at IITs were enough to take me on nerves, I put the concept of online event at our college techfest Sakshama. I wrote a module and named it 'Morse'. Manu did the job of story director and developed awesome script. We both did cool hacks and event was successful carrying entries from various engineering colleges in India. It is still working here : Morse

    • Used technologies – Drupal API
    • Working as a driving engine for a national level Online puzzle event : morse
    • This year event was based on a story scripted for a cartoon character: launchpad
    • source code: http://code.google.com/p/sakshamamorse/
    Drupal's quiz module extension - quiz-marking :

    We were about to organize preliminary quizzing rounds in our college techfest. After looking over some LAN quizzing softwares we found drupal with quiz module rocking. It was fine but we also needed positive/negative marking association to question nodes with cut off list, so it was a little hack that did the job.
