Projects

  • Futures for C++11 at Facebook – Facebook added futures to their Folly C++ library. Futures is a great abstraction for asynchronous programming (and in fact, it is not the first implementation of them in C++). And the article is interesting.
  • Realtime Webcam Sudoku Solver – this project is old (well, not very old – 2011), but very impressive. You point a webcam on a sudoku field, the program solves it and draws the result directly on the screen. The full process is explained in the article. A great thing to re-implement if you have a couple of weeks.
