Yet Another Tiring day:-((

Today was a tiring day as usual. I've started to realise that it might become very difficult for me to get the GSoC intern. Anyways,I've successfully implemented the co-efficient corelation algorithm. It was very important for the search engine project that I'm working on. The algorithm is used for a feature that would allow users to give images rather than search terms to search for stuff. Sounds interesting isnt it? The project really is a great medium to work around your skills. There is also another project going on in my college which is called the diorama.the aim is to combine two or more images of an object at different angles to create a 3D model. This is also done using openCV. I was introduced to openCv only last week. Now I'm really happy that I came to know about it. I also have another Embedded project that I've got to submit by next week. Planning to do something on the iPad. I read a few reviews on the iPad. They were pretty interesting. I think once a few features get addded to the iPad plus a few software updates including one for multi-tasking,iPad could become a phenomenon something what the iPhone was able to do in the market. I've also added a few of the designs that I've worked on for the dreamwidth project. Let me know of your suggestions please!!!

Back HOME:-)

Hi Guys,
Last four days I had gone for an Industrial Visit!! That's why couldn't post anything here. I couldn't even edit my GSoC proposal because of this sudden visit.. That said, I don't think it will be easy for me to get the intern as I've been seeing a lot of other really good applications in the community... A lot of people have been suggesting android clients which could be useful in the long run after I heard that Google was partnering with Sony and Logitech for the so-called Google TV which again uses android... I've always loved Google for the work they do.. Especially the pigeon ranking system that they use in their search engine... I've never tried an android cell-phone so i do not know if it would be better than an iPhone client... In addition, I believe iPhone has a better following than the android in terms of numbers at least... I've just downloaded the latest releases of tekzilla in my college... Have lots of work to do!!!! I also would like to state here that if an android client gets selected ahead of the iPhone as part of GSoC,then I would like to work in the summer making an iPhone client for the dreamwidth project as I definitely would like to use dreamwidth on my iPod Touch even if its not sponsored by Google:P. I'm sure the mentors will help me on this front. I've started learning openCV for one of my search engine projects and I've really fallen in love with the library! I never knew that one could do so much with C and C++.

getting the GSOC application ready

Hmm... Today seems to be a fine day except for the tiring classes,I think it was a great day... I had made a few sketches about the planned iPhone client that I had wished to implement... I had submitted it to both denise and Mark.. Denise had actually approved it and gave me a thumbs up I believe... Having quite some experience with the iPhone application did actually help... The dreamwidth engine is actually great... The mobile client if designed properly should be an instant hit... I'm also interested in few other designs for the iPhone project... let me see ways in which I can share it with the community...

My first day at Dreamwidth

Hi my fellow friends out there. This is my first day at dreamwidth and I'm greatly excited. I'm actually planning to make an iPhone client for the dreamwidth project as part of the GSOC project. I'm trying to work with all the features available at dreamwidth so that I could get a better grasp of things. I have the experience of creating a few iPhone applications before and I'm greatly interesting in working on this project as I think I could get better grasp of how perl works. I'm not going to lie. I'm new to perl but I'm fluent with PHP,javascript,jQuery,AJAX and XML. I've got myself a book on perl where I planning to understand the basics. But the iPhone client will not be all about perl as it would involve only using web-services a lot.
Hoping to getting comments from you guys. have a great day!!!
