Personal Projects:
 Boris Engine
After completing my 2nd year programming project of a game complete with its own
internal engine, it occurred to me that I could salvage the engine and create a library that I
could easily import into other projects in the future (effectively creating my own “game

 MusicLibrary3
An (albeit older) project of mine, but one that diversifies my portfolio. This library was
an experiment with digitising the representation and playing of music in a similar way to what
the midi format would do.

I have dabbled with the use of neural networks, but in particular I have created
various libraries experimenting with the “Neuro-Evolution of Augmenting Topologies”
paradigm, as this has the property of allowing a network to have a dynamic structure of
nodes and connections, rather than just the weights being variable.

Generally, I enjoy creating programming and game projects using C# from vague
ideas that occur to me as this helps refresh my ability to create such projects and improve
my knowledge of C# and object-oriented programming.
Also worth noting is that I’ve recently taken an interest in Artificial Intelligence,
specifically in neural networks. Although I believe that the current hype of AI is somewhat
exaggerated (i.e. various companies use it as a buzzword in order to gain attention), the
recent renaissance in the public interest in machine learning has led to various useful tools
and insights into how people themselves think.
