What's this thing?

I use this space to try new things. Hopefully, some of them might be of your interest.

Hanabi

There's a really cool cooperative board game called Hanabi. I often play this game with my friends during lunch, and thought it would be nice to do an online version as a coding exercise. This allowed me to learn coding in JavaScript (even those details like when things are copied by value or by reference), and it is also my very first attempt at doing an online application. If you take a look at the client-side code, you can clearly see a huge evolution on the coding techniques used throughout the (spaghetti like) code.

So, if you have came here to play Hanabi, here's the link: Play Hanabi

If you like the online version of the game you can buy a physical one here

PLaying with MathJax

The other day I learnt about a javascript library called MathJax. It's a library for parsing and rendering $\LaTeX$ (math mode) in html documents resulting in really beautiful equations.

I wanted to try out this library, so, here's an equation And here's a set of equations, a little bit more related to my research

Rubik's Cube

The amazing people from the Rubik's cube official website made available a virtual rubik cube to play online. I think it's the same version used by Google on their doodle from May 2014.

As the Rubik's cube geek I am, I wanted to try that on my own website. So, here it is!

You can play with the mouse, or using the keyboard. The keys L, R, U, D, F, B and their corresponding lowercase turn left, right, up, down, front and back, clockwise and counterclockwise repectively. The keys X, Y and Z to turn the cube on the different axes.

Sorry, Cubers broken
