A lightweight and powerful library that allows a process running on Windows-based systems to access (read/write) another processes' memory spaces.

This project is showcased in seven other fully functional example projects mainly targeted to provide cheats for game players. In these projects, the library is used to modify the game's behavior by modifying its assembly instructions and memory data.

The library can also be applied to information security, such as scanning a Windows process's memory for possible vulnerabilities or malicious data. Internally, the library uses C#'s P/Invoke (platform invoke) features to access privileged Windows APIs, which it uses to perform IO operations to target processes' memory spaces.

Terraria Crafting Calculator
A small utility created for players of the popular Terraria game. This utility allows the player to see the ingredients and materials needed to craft items in the game. It also embeds a calculator that allows players to easily determine the amounts of each ingredient or material needed to craft a specific quantity of target items.

Internally, the application works as a web scraping robot. It consults the game's main Wiki/Fandom website, parses the website's data, and discovers the ingredients for each item the player wants to craft. The application works as a Windows desktop executable, and its UI was developed using WPF and UWP libraries. The current publicly available version was written using UWP.

Simple OIDC-OAuth
An identity provider server that enables clients to use the OAuth 2 and OIDC protocol to implement their own authentication and authorization features. I developed the back end as a RESTful web API using ASP.NET Core and IdentityServer (now owned by the rebranded company, Duende Software). A separate front-end application was created with React and TypeScript.

VTK Clipper
A tool for visualizing and manipulating CT (computerized tomography) and MRT (magnetic resonance tomography) medical exams in DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) format.

The tool enables data manipulation using traditional devices such as keyboard and mouse and less traditional input devices such as the Nintendo Wii Remote and Microsoft Kinect.
