My final year Computer Science project was based on data mining the enron email dataset. The raw Enron email dataset contains 517,424 real email log files organised into 3501 directories nested inside 150 employee mailbox folders.

I found this project extremely fun and had a really good time working on it. A future project idea of mine is to rewrite the Java application so it can plug into any dataset of email logs and expose the data. (Producing similar graphs, statistics).

The visualisation below displays how a specific email spreads throughout an organisation.

Ironfist XNA Fighting Game

I programmed Ironfist in 2011, over a 6 week period. Technologies: C# / XNA 4.0 framework.

Many people ask about the character animations, this was simply achieved by processing a 2d vector over spritesheets controlled by a finite state machine. For anyone still interested, the book O'Reilly Learning XNA 4.0 by Aaron Reed covers the animation part in detail (excluding FSM).

I also decided to make the project video public again.
