Oh No! Your little gnome needs help! Due to a terrible mistake at the landromat, all clothes have been mixed up! It's your mission to trade clothes with everybody you see to help your gnome get dressed.
A interactive, social game. Using your smartphone, you are challenged to meet new people and trade virtual clothes. A beamer is placed where people can chat and write requests for clothes.
I'm more than happy to demonstrate this app in real life!

Self-financed project born from a passion for meditation. The app features an interactive guided meditation. Interactive, because the app modifies the guidance in reponse to user input. More details at www.marknis.com.

Hello, my name Mark Marijnissen,
I'm 25 years old and I live in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
I have been programming since I was a little kid. It all started in Logo. Then I moved on to Visual Basic. By the time I was twelve years old, I created a professional website for a friend - it was still HTML and animated GIFs those days :) In high-school I programmed things such as Blackjack on my graphical calculator, and after that I picked up Object Oriented programming in Delphi.
Now, I have a bachelor in Artificial Intelligence and I am working as freelance app developer.
But my life is more than app development. I like to create music (using keyboard, guitar, ableton push). I used to paint and draw, too. Because I am so fond of creative experiences, I enjoy collaborating with performers and artists.
I love the clarity and calm that mindfulness and meditation give me. I'm creating an interactive meditation app, and sometimes I guide a meditation at a local meditation group.
I like to practice non-violent communication to love and connect with the people around me - I am hosting a practice group in Nijmegen once a week.
