Experience

  • Retronix (Development)
    http://retronix.czak.pl

    Retronix is a remake of the classic 1984 DOS game, Xonix. Initially I just wanted to code something for my Nexus Player. As I got further into the implementation I realized I could extract a common gameplay core and make it work on the desktop as well. And then I stumbled into GWT and implemented one more back-end with it. As a result, the game now builds for desktop Java, Android (both TV and touch devices), and is playable on the web.

  • Replayer (Development)

    Replayer is a music player for practicing musicians. It provides real-time time-stretching and pitch-shifting functionality, all wrapped in a simple user interface. The controls are exposed as one-handed keyboard shortcuts in order to simplify usage when holding an instrument.

    Replayer is an OS X application written in Objective-C and utilizes Apple Core Audio extensively.

  • GPS Watches (Development)

    A long-dormant idea turned into a client-side web application. This React app is a search-and-compare utility for runners looking for a GPS running watch. With some more love—and especially with some more data—this may someday become a useful utility and not just an exercise in web development.

  • ¿Cuánto es? (Development)
    https://github.com/czak/cuanto

    ¿Cuánto es? is my first foray into the Android platform. A simple app to help you practice Spanish numerals. The app uses a flashcard-style interface and the built-in Android speech synthesizer allows you to check your pronunciation. At some point the app could be expanded to other languages and other types of practice material.

  • VBalance (Development)
    https://github.com/czak/vbalance

    VBalance is a simple Android application I built so that I could have a quick glance overview of my prepaid cellphone account. The official Virgin Mobile app is decent, but this one function was missing. I also wanted to try out building a home screen widget and this was a perfect opportunity. This was also a chance to exercise my web skills in order to reverse engineer the official API of the VM back-end.

  • Triangulator (Development)
    https://github.com/czak/triangulator

    Inspired by qrohlf's Trianglify project, Triangulator is primarily an exercise in Swift and Cocoa. A simple OS X desktop app for generating polygon-style pattern images. The application is open source and the code is available on GitHub.

  • Quicksend (Development)
    http://czak.pl/2016/01/19/introducing-quicksend.html

    Quicksend is a simple OS X status-bar utility for uploading files to your Amazon S3 buckets. Just drag any file onto the Quicksend icon and receive a public URL in return. For simple use cases, Quicksend may replace more expensive upload and share tools, while giving the user full control over the storage of their files.
