My name’s Pius Nyakoojo. I also go by the names Pi and phaseshifter.
The web is a wonderful place to share information and learn with others without physical limitations. It’s unlike anywhere I've been before, so I've decided to move in.
After exploring my room, you’ll quickly discover some of the things that interest me most. This place will serve as a "space" to record ideas, projects I’m involved in, physical experiments conducted, and other things that make me an active learner in this journey of life.
Click and scroll around the place. In case you're not so interested in my academic life, I've left plenty of rabbit holes for you to explore.
Regardless, I hope you find something here that helps you start or complete a project of your own.
Enjoy your stay :)

iPod Touch Simulation
I began this project sometime in January/February 2015. The idea was to simulate an iPod Touch in the browser. Although it's not really complete, i'm happy with how far I got. I've been working on another project which I'm really excited about and can't wait to share! :)
My first iOS app is completed! I started this app in the late summer of 2014 in the library of my college at that time.
When I transferred universities, I didn't have access to Xcode on the macs in the library for a few weeks and as a result
took a break from development. After my ticket was responded to, adjusting to new schools and having more time for my projects,
I decided to finish this bad boy. It was fun, I learned a lot!
This applet was inspired by exercises presented in Daniel Y. Liang's
Introduction to Java textbook [Chapter 20: Recursion].
Its purpose was to develop a capacity to think recursively. Many natural
phenomena demonstrate recursive properties. I felt that thinking recursively
would be another tool with which one could reconstruct better approximations
of natural systems.
Room is Online!
Finally, My own place to live and share with others! I began constructing this place in October
2014 and have it online today: December 3, 2014. It's a bit barren now but will be refined over my long
anticipated stay. It was a great experience to build it because I didn't know a lot about html5, css
probably see remnants of my immaturity in these subjects. I couldn't have done this without the great
library known as three.js (helps bring 3D to the web), the websites that give three.js
examples (i.e. threejs.org/examples and stemkoski.github.io/Three.js), and w3schools for all the great
