Papoulier – The great scorner

It all started as a joke, I swear. But it got worse.

For some reason we decided that Karolos Papoulias (cool dude if you ask me) scorns everybody. This stems from his menacing scorn face he has all the time. So what was the next certain step? Meme this!

Papoulier is a productivity application that will pop a randomly chosen picture of Karolos Papoulias, from some corner of your screen, at random intervals. You too will feel him scorning!

ART (Agility Reaction Trainer)

ART, or Agility Reaction Trainer, is a tool that was the main point of reference of Giannakis’ Academy Summer Camp 2018. ART is a interactive tool, that aims at improving the Peripheral Vision, Reaction Time, and Memory of its users. In essence it’s an MDF wooden board with 8 buttons and an LCD screen, that with the help of an Arduino Mega board provides 3 games.

The first game is a Reaction time game, where buttons light up at random times, and the user has to press the buttons as soon as they appear. The second game is similar to the first, where buttons light up, but they light up right as the user presses the previous button. The difference with the previous game is that while in the previous game the aim was a small reaction time, in this game the aim is high number of buttons pressed. The third game is similar to Simon says. Scoring is based on how many correct consecutive button presses the user achieves.

This project was developed together with Dimitris Giannakakis (Concept & Wood Construction) and Stamatis Nikolopoulos(Electrics).

Karaoke Synchronizer

Ah, the karaoke Synchronizer, also known as Kara-OK!

KaraOK is a Karaoke Creating Application developed during my time at Express Publishing. The application allowed for a music clip to be synced with audio, and the sync to be exported as an XML file.

The company used the application to create interactive reading activities for their e-books, where students could hear a text being read, and words would light up whenever they were heard.

The island of saints and scholars

The island of saints and scholars is as redundant a phrase as any other Irish cliche we choose to perpetuate. That being said, the nation’s reputation for religious devotion and high levels of literacy wasn’t fabricated by the geniuses at Carrolls Irish Gift Store. It was once true. For it to be true again, however, your command of the month coinníolach can’t help you. Modh coinníolach, mo problems.

A whole new tongue – the language of computers – will be what separates the educated from the ignorant masses of tomorrow. Understanding how to write code for computers is already becoming one of the most highly prized skill sets anyone can have in the global economy. Here’s why:

10. Code rules everything around me, cream get the money

All major tech companies, from Google to Facebook, aggressively compete to hire gifted young coders. In the Silicon Valley area, for example, some reports suggest engineering graduates from Stanford University expect their starting salary to be nothing less than $100,000-120,000.

“It’s fair to say that for school-leavers looking to maximise their potential income, few other skills open the door to as many well-paying and varied careers,” says Prof Rory O’Connor, head of the school of computing at Dublin City University.

Coding bridges the universal divide. It is the one language that connects different nationalities and countries. We live in trying times and are pummeled.

Programming is still in its infancy. In fact, two of the very first programming languages ever invented are still being used today: Fortran (developed in 1957) and Cobol. “This does not mean that we are using old technology,” says Josue Balandrano Coronel from the Texas advanced computing centre at the University of Texas at Austin. “Those programming languages are being used in very narrow contexts. Even so, this shows us programming has barely started on its own evolutionary path.
