In 2008, I quit my job at Texas Intruments India to start a Qt consultancy company called ForwardBias Technologies with Girish. Girish had just returned to India after working for TrollTech on the Qt toolkit.
These are some of the stuff I worked on while at ForwardBias.
Girish and myself worked on adding Open Document Format support to KDE’s word processor, on a project sponsored by the NLNet Foundation.
The drop caps feature was particularly challenging, requiring changes to the core text layouting code.
I created a library that can parse SVG snippets into Qt graphics objects.
Girish and I made a photo-uploader desktop application for Hyves, which used to be a full-fledged Dutch social network at that time.
I was the primary developer for a fun photo-editing mode – where you can add captions, filters and stickers to photos – which I demo in this video.
