This month in projects

August 13th, 2010

While I spent the bulk of the space here writing about Shion, I figured that it might be useful to describe some of the client work that I currently have underway that is funding the work on your friendly neighborhood home automation app. I run Audacious Software as both a products and services company, and while it receives fewer mentions on this weblog, the services side of the company is much more mature than the products side. Fortunately, I’ve been able to find client projects that strongly compliment the product work I do as well, so there’s a nice virtuous circle at work here.

So, in terms of what’s keeping me busy this month, here are a few descriptions (provided with permission) of some of the other work underway.

Audacious Software does Qt/Symbian

January 11th, 2010

Over the past few months, I’ve been working hard on a Symbian project for Northwestern University’s medical school. I’ve written a blog post describing the work at the official Symbian weblog.

A few thoughts:

1. I’ve really enjoyed developing using Qt on the S60 platform. I’m looking forward to finding new work on that platform.

2. The distributed IPC mechanism that I’ve built on top of XMPP is a technique that I originally implemented using Shion’s remote command interface. Because of this project, I haven’t recently had the time to bring some of the lessons learned back to Shion, but I’m looking forward to doing so when my calendar clears a bit.

3. This project is also an evolution of the context-aware computing work that I did in graduate school. I’m looking forward to bring Pennyworth officially under the Audacious Software banner once I clear up a few things with my former collaborators at the university.

I’d like to reiterate that Audacious Software is very interested in doing more internal and client work in the Symbian mobile space. If you have a potential project that this company might be able to help out with, please let me know.

Company update: Client work

October 12th, 2009

It recently dawned on me that a whole month had passed since this weblog was last updated. The last several months have been quite busy between work on internal projects like Shion and work on external client projects. The lack of posts was not a symptom of a lack of company activity, but rather a reflection of how busy the company has actually been.

I’ve posted extensively on Shion and other internal projects, but for readers interested in the kinds of paying work that Audacious Software takes on, the list below is a sample of some of the projects from the last couple of months.
