Common Code for Contests in Concise C++
Alex's Anthology of Algorithms: Common Code for Contests in Concise C++ (A3C5) is a concise codebook with a not so concise name! Compiled over the years from my experience doing contests, this extensive anthology contains algorithms and data structures ranging from shortest paths to link-cut trees. The selling-point is that each topic is implemented in a generic, concise style specially tailored for contests. This is a work undergoing review, though I expect to have the project finalized in a few months time.
If you like computational linguistics, then you've probably already heard of the Backus-Naur Form for context-free grammars. Syntaxilizer is a no-nonsense parser I started after discovering (to my surprise) that there existed no such parser tool on the web. The program lets you input a standard BNF definition and an arbitrary phrase to be analyzed. In return, you'll find out whether it matches the definition and see a breakdown of the text in terms of clauses in your definition.
LazerMazer is a 2D game I wrote in high school. You're trapped in series of dark mazes and must guide yourself out using nothing by a powerful laser. Watch out for enemies and don't let your life force deplete!

The PEG Online Judge is a platform where you can practice your problem-solving skills on a thousand (and counting!) high quality programming problems. I have helped upload and maintain a good majority of these, and currently serve as an administrator of the site.

The Woburn Challenge is a computer programming competition geared towards Canadian high school students. It had been a tradition of Woburn C.I.'s Programming Enrichment Group since the early 1990s, until it was discontinued a decade later. In 2015, a few friends and I decided to jumpstart this enrichment opportunity once again in order to give back to the community which made us who we are today. I currently serve as contest director, where I organize logistics for the rounds and help develop questions.
