Learn To Draw

I always was interested in drawing, but it is quite hard at some point if you have to study everything on your own, without learning it in school or having a real teacher who gives you some tips and tricks on how you can do something.

So here are some links to some good teaching sites, resources and more. Check it out and tell me, if you have found other useful websites.

WolframBot (Wizard of Oz)

A robot that scans a question from a piece of paper and prints out the answer based on its own logical reasoning.
To be used for the “Wizard of Oz” activity for the Human Computer Interaction class of Vienna University of Technology in cooperation with Thomas Rieder.

It was quite fun to create this kind of machine, especially when many people (also IT students) believe that we really got this amazing robot working.

TISS Quick Registration Script

What is it about?

It is always very hard to get into a limited group if many other students (>200) also try to get into the same group. You have to be faster than anyone else. It was always a very thrilling moment, when the registration slots got opened. And so the idea was born to to create a automatic script, lean back and watch it doing its job in a very relaxed way.

A brief description of the script and its possibilities:

The UserScript helps you to get into the group you want on TISS fully automatically. It opens the right panel, registers and confirms your registration. If you don’t want the script to do everything automatically, the focus is already set on the right button, so you only need to confirm. There is also an option available to auto refresh the page, if the registration button is not available yet, so you can open the site and watch the script doing its work. You can also set a specific time when the script should reload the page and start.
