Android Paint and Draw for your Kids

Over the last years I kept asking my now 5 year old daughter how she would design a simple painting App and how this Painting App should look like. We discussed about the background color as well as how to change and choose colors, the absolute requirement to add the color pink and how to change the brush thickness. The design of the paint and drawing App went completely without the need to read a single piece of written text or menu. We came up with a very simple and intuitive way to touch-draw images for children and to store these images as .png pictures. You can find your free Android Painting App for Kids and Children in the Google App store.

Software Structure Analysis and Metric Calculation with Neo4J and Cypher

During the last weeks the Software Analytics and Evolution research team at the Software Competence Center Hagenberg (which is the group i am actually working in) built a software tool for parsing large scale legacy software systems, such as C, C++ but also FORTRAN, Structured Text (IEC 61131 Machinery and Robot programs) or Matlab source code with the goal to analyse its structure by using a Neo4J graph database and Cypher queries. As you can see within this demo video, the tool is able to visualize important aspects and metrics as well as the software architecture and structure of the analyzed software system. The tool is meant for supporting companies to develop and maintain their large software systems and code bases.

Tableau Business Intelligence with TabShop Point of Sale

Many times i have been asked by TabShop users to enhance the reporting capabilities of TabShop Point of Sale in order to do some queries, reports or filtering on sales data. Over the last weeks i thought about this issue and came to test several third party reporting and business intelligence tools that are able to import and analyze the raw sales data from our TabShop Point of Sale App. The first software i tested is Tableau, a really powerfull stand alone software tool for analyzing all kinds of available data.You can see a demo video here:

i was able to import the TabShop Invoice CSV Export within minutes and immediately created some interesting charts, such as products by date and time, distribution of products and sell quantity over time. Tableau really is a powerful tool that has enormous potential also in combination with Point of Sale Systems such as TabShop POS.
