Q&A App

Hey, When my professor put a machine-readable quiz on his website, I made an app for my Phone to do the quiz.. Today I ported it to the desktop and I’d like to share it: Download Q&A It requires .NET Framework 4.0. To feed it with questions, you need a text file (preferable in UTF-8 encoding) that follows these simple rules: question-answer blocks are separated by one empty line question-lines begin with ‘Q: ’ answer-lines begin with ‘A: ‘ category-lines begin with ‘C: ‘ multiple Q/A/C-lines per block are allowed There’s a sample file in the *.zip. You can load a file from your computer, or from a remote location (eg. a textfile in a public dropbox folder). have fun!

Exploring NuGet

Since 5 hours now, I ‘m on NuGet and I’d like to share my first experiences. Why did I join NuGet? I joined NuGet, because it seems to be the most comfortable way to share libraries, containing XAML controls. Share them between my own projects, as well as with you. Previously I always had to include the project containing the controls in the solution I was working on, which was really annoying.. How can you use it? Let’s assume that you want to use a package in your project. All you need is the NuGet Package Manager Visual Studio extension. You can install it via Tools/Extensions and Updates. To use/reference a package from NuGet right-click on the references in the solution explorer and select ‘Manage NuGet Packages’. Then you can search for the package you desire (for example ‘TCD.Serialization’) and add it to your project. How do I use it?…


Tool collection

Hey everyone out there, I just decided to share some tools I made with C# (Console or WPF) with you: 1. Batch4sqQR – A tool to create nice QR-Stickers for one or more Foursquare venues (download) 2. MergeTool – A tool to merge all *.gpx files in a folder into one new *.gpx (download) 3. AnonymizeTool – A tool to randomly shift the timestamps of all trackpoints & waypoints in all *.gpx files in a folder (download)   These tools are very simple, but there aren’t any or many applications on the internet that do those things^^ Of course you can contact me if you have any questions or so x)
