Noteworthy Study Projects
SLUB Library information system // 2005
This project was realized during an internship course at university. The goal was to develop an application for the Saxon State and University Library (SLUB) which would help visitors locate bookshelves and services in the library building. Within the project, I was charged with designing the software architecture and responsible for major parts of the implementation.
The application was successfully delivered on time and deployed on the library's public computers. It remains in active use up to this day and can be reached here.
Maya2Lw // 2001
Maya2Lw was a free collection of scripts for Autodesk Maya which gave artists the ability to export animations created in Maya to be rendered in Newtek Lightwave. I developed these scripts between 2001 and 2003. Download the last version here.
