Mill AI

Nine Men’s Morris. Rules of the mill game. Classic mill playing board on which the player can perform moves. Display with GUI in WPF. An AI against which the human is playing (When the human player has made a turn, the AI is next and calculates its move).

Everyone has played “Mills” or “Nine Men’s Morris”. But on the computer? Against a self-written computer opponent? That sounds exciting!

The special thing is that you are not playing against another person, but against an AI. An AI that I develop myself and which calculates its own move.

Daily Standup Timer

Daily standup is a time-boxed meeting that lasts maximum 15 minutes. Each team member answers the following 3 questions:

  • What did you do yesterday?
  • What will you do today?
  • Are there any impediments in your way?

But more often than not, standups turn into long discussions and sometimes it could even last up to 1 hour. To address this, I have built this timer in WPF and MVVM.

Each team member has 1 minute to answer the questions. If the countdown reaches 0, a stopwatch will count the overtime.Screenshot2

This timer will help each team member to stay focused and to share only the relevant information. It will help the team avoid big discussions in the standup meeting.
