Tutorial: Bubblesort animation

A few years ago I programmed a simple animation of the bubblesort sorting algorithm with Xojo. For fun, I simplified the code from back then significantly and reprogrammed the whole thing (see video).

Tutorial: Randomly pick items from list

A few days ago we needed a software that should randomly draw three winners from a list of people. The list should be able to be inserted by Copy&Paste e.g. from a CSV file. So I quickly got to the keyboard and programmed something small. For fun I made a little video out of it.
