Well, I now have a Masters Degree in Computer Science, with top grades. Hooray!
My thesis this time was about a project called OpenLDAT that you'll see on this site shortly: it's basically a fully free version of the Nvidia LDAT that you can build for less than 20€ that I've been working on since December 2020. The project is essentially complete and works quite well but I still have to translate at least part of the documentation from Italian to English so it will be a while before everyone can enjoy it.
I have to say, for the first time in a while, I was impressed by the work of other students: there were some genuinely interesting presentations, like a guy who made a new lighting system for real-time graphics. There were also some pretty bad, botnet ones, but let's not talk about that, most of them were good.
I was hoping to put a video here of my presentation like I did last time, but I couldn't bring my friends due to covid and both my boomer parents can't even operate their own phones so all I got this time was a couple of very bad photos.
The ceremony was in Milan so I got home pretty late, talked to my friends and went straight to bed. This time there was also no partying due to covid.
If you want to take a look at my thesis, as well as the presentation, I have uploaded them here:
A few days ago I was contacted by one of my old high school teachers, they were looking for someone who could teach computer science this year and I accepted. I have very good memories of that school and I'm very excited about going there again, I hope I can do a good job.
Because of this, I may become less active, at least in the first few months while I learn the new job, but don't worry, OpenLDAT is coming soon :)
