Apart from my job, I like to go hiking and discover new landscapes and wildlife that I like to photograph with my digital SLR camera. I am also always interested and passionate about exploring new destinations and new countries.
During the various hikes or trips that I have made with my friends or with my Meetup group, I noticed that the pictures I took were only used for a short time before being archived in a directory that was almost never opened. Moreover, when some people asked me to recommend them, I thought it would be more convenient if I could show them the pictures I took on a map. The Photo Travel project was born.
The aim of Photo Travel is to display photos of trips, hiking and events on a map for people interested in a particular destination, a particular hike or a local event.
Using the new web technologies HTML 5 and CSS 3, I have redesigned my personal website in order to have a new responsible website with a better display depending if you are using a mobile, a tablet or a desktop computer.
Over the past years, the quantity of data created has increased in a very significant way. Databases and more generally data stores are now installed on servers, desktop computers but also on mobile devices. As a result, distributed data stores technologies have been developed to link these data by using some communication technologies.
In this dissertation, a Java toolkit for creating distributed data stores applications is designed and developed by using Java abstraction mechanisms. Before the development of the toolkit, some middleware technologies are studied in order to establish the communication between the different data stores. At the end of the project, the toolkit is implemented inside a concrete application scenario, that is, a client application which manages several libraries which have their own database.
The toolkit has been created modular with two layers. The first layer is the middleware layer composed of the SQLSpaces and JGroups modules, the middleware technologies that have been selected after the experiments. The second layer is the data layer composed of the MySQL and RDF data stores modules. Transfer transparency between RDF data stores and databases has been implemented and data are transferred between data stores by using command objects representing commands sent to one or many data stores.
Interactions between the different modules of the toolkit
During my internship at Distrame from July 2010 to September 2011, I have participated to the creation of the solution Efficacenergie. This solution, directly installed on the intranet network of the customer, allows the measure of energy consumption of a building such as water consumption, gas, electricity or the measure of temperature, … Efficacenergie is compatible with the wireless sensors of the brands LEM and Coronis.
Here is a small video of presentation of the solution (French video) :
I inform you about the release of a new version of Redim Picture, my software to resize image.
What’s new :
Management of the main formats of image (JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP)
New management of the proportions
Possibility of changing formats of favorites images
Addition which allows the user to save dimensions defined by images
Choice of the path where to save the image
The ancient version of Redim Picture was developed in VB.NET and suffered numerous bugs (Be indulgent, it was my first program 🙂 ). This new version, developed there in C#, is a beta version. Thus, if you notice bugs or if you wish to announce me a possibility of improvement of the software, do not hesitate to contact me.
Description of the program :
Name : Redim Picture
Description : Software to resize images (see novelties)
System compatibles : Windows xp, vista, seven. (Require the .NET Framework 3.5, to download it, click here).
I made a customised program in VB.NET for the real estate agency Agora Immobilier who allowed them to resize a picture very easily. But after, I replaced this program by a PHP module who perform this task more easily. This software became deprecated, I decided to reuse the previous code to create a software for everybody.
Redim Picture v 0.1 :
– Description :
This software allows to resize in a very simple way an image. Select an image, indicate the name and the size of the image then click to resize. The version 0.1 supports only the images in the JPEG format.
This is a preview of the software that I have create during my full-time internship (3 months) and during my part-time internship (A day a week).
Here are some fonctionalities of this software :
Monthly calendar (glimpes of the state of the rents)
Monthly report of management for the owners
Quarterly receipt of management fee
Annual receipt of management fee
Annual summarization of rent and service charges
State of the accounts tenants
List of the transfers to be made to the owners
Big quarterly book for the accounting
Edition of receipt in the PDF format
The owners, the tenants, the accountants have their own online interface in the website. If you want to have an outline of the various interfaces, click here.
The software is actually in version 1.7. I worked in the version 2.0 which will have a more intuitive interface and which will see the addition of new modules.
