Navier-Stokes fluids

Once we tried out Navier-Stokes equations to create nice looking fluid effects. The experiment test-program turned into a mini Java-game, you can try it here: www.dvc.fi/fluid

Recruitment exercise

This little Java-game was implemented while thinking about ways to test programming skills in the recruitment.

We decided to try if implementation of some old classic game with modern tools would be a suitable exercise. We selected the old VIC-20 game Omega-Race (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omega_Race).

The Idea was to start with computer that has just plain OS installed and network connection. Installation and selection of development-tools is also meant to be part of the exercise. The job applicant could just be told to Google for Omega Race and implement the same in one day.

I implemented the game to test the exercise using Java and decided to make it a browser applet. It took me about 9 hours to finish the exercise. You can check out the result in www.dvc.fi/omega-race
