Hello people! I hope you are well!

In this article I would like to present you a simple C++ 3D vector library. This is just a prototype and I am sure you can find other better and more complete alternatives. So, we are just dealing here with a “Yet Another 3D Vector Library”.

I created this library because I wanted to reuse some 3D vector operations in various OpenGL computer graphics exercise programs (from my M.Sc. studies). Of course, I could use an already existing library. However, I wanted also to understand how some basic 3D vector operations work.

In a recent Arduino embedded system I needed to manage an Arduino GSM Shield for some specific use cases. However, I couldn’t use the well-known GSM library due to memory capacity limitations since this library “eats” the Arduino board memory 🙂 I could use an Arduino board with more memory capacity but this was not the case for me. I wrote the library SimpleGSM, which is a simple GSM library for managing the Arduino GSM shield (maybe you can use the library with other GSM cards) and execute some basic operations. I wrote the library to have exactly the operations I wanted. The library uses internally a software serial for the communication.

AngularJS is really a great open-source framework for creating single page web applications (SPA) based on MVW (Model / View / Whatever) architecture. In this article, I’ll present to you how the Repository design pattern can be used in order to encapsulate into a separate layer all the underlying communication with a back-end remote system for performing CRUD operations. The example next is very simple since the user can load either a list of customers or a list of orders by clicking the appropriate link from a menu.

The project ‘Hasher’ is an open source .NET C# library which implements salted hashing.

You can use Hasher in your next account system to secure your sensitive data (e.g. user passwords).

The project ‘RestApiWrapUtility’ (RESTful API Wrapper Utility) is an open source .NET C# utility which implements a RESTful API wrapper. The utility is created in order to be an intermediate layer between clients that want to communicate with a remote server in order to use its RESTful services.

The Qt framework supports internationalization (I18N) and you can easily use it to your applications with a little effort. So, in this article I’ll show you how you can make it happen in a simple Qt application. The first thing you should do is making the GUI of the application translation-aware. That means setting all the texts you want of your widgets to be translatable. From the Qt Designer you can make translation-aware all your widgets. Here is an image that shows you how you can make the text of a QPushButton instance to be translation-aware :

The project ‘shell-library’ (Shell Function Library) is a developers’ effort to develop a free shell library with POSIX general purpose functions. The functions that the library offers can be used within shell scripts developed to automate the work of your operating system.

Black Box testing and general testing is a key step in the iterative development methodologies (e.g. UP, XP, Agile) as it performs both the validation and verification of units in a system.

The QT provides an adorable way to store the settings of a program with a GUI (and not only) by means of the QSettings library. Below, we quote a personal version of the project ‘parkman‘ (Parking Manager).
