An image resizing application using parrallel processing
This application started out as an example implementation of a terformance tip featured in RedGate's free e-book ’52 Tips & Tricks to Boost .NET Performance’ (http://rd.gt/1LHiIBX).
In my blogpost at http://www.infotopie.nl/blog/perf/bottlenecks I elaborate on this technique with a little more detail.
This initial alpha version of the app is working on my machine, has only partially been tested, and is by no means "production ready".
I am playing with the idea to use the app as a basis for uploading images to a Synology Diskstation. The requirements will change in that case, multiple thumbnail sizes will need to be generated, and will need to be uploaded using the undocumented PHP API instead of simply stored to disk.
The icons used in this application are from FamFamFam (http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/).
This software is based in part on the work of the Independent JPEG Group.
Disclaimer for potential future employers: This is not "solid", nither is it "clean". Please don't judge my coding skills on this quick project. Thanks.
