Explaining the new zumida dashboard

December 29, 2016

Recently I have been working on the zumida dashboard. The dasboard provides an overview of the information managed with zumida. From there you can dive into the information as explained in a previous post.

The following screenshot shows the zumida dashboard after login. The dashboard consists of six parts:

  1. The list of active zumida topics grouped by last modification date (i.e. today, yesterday, this week, this month, etc.).
  2. A text input for searching the available zumida topics or creating a new zumida topic (when pressing the Enter key).
  3. The number of contents inside each of the zumida topics scaled with respect to the maximum number of contents per topic in each group and tinged with the topic color.
  4. The number of cross-references within and between zumida topics scaled with respect to the maximum number of cross-references per topic in each group.
  5. The name of each zumida topic.
  6. A button for archiving active zumida topics.

When clicking or tapping the name of a zumida topic you enter the explorer view explained in the previous post.

While typing into the text input for searching or creating zumida topics, the list of available topics is updated automatically as shown in the following screenshot. Furthermore, the search matches are highlighted inside the topic names.

I hope you like the new zumida dashboard! If you like, just try it out at I'd be grateful for any type of feedback.

Artistic Exercises

Last weekend I was visiting friends in Berlin. Many of them work in the creative domain being photographers, journalists, and artists. It has been an interesting experience and a pleasure to switch from my technical domain and exchange with more emotional and cultural viewpoints. This article explains my position towards arts along two drawings.

Software Campus - A new academic excellence program.

To promote young computer scientists on their way to management or entrepreneurship a consortium of leading German corporations and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research have initiated a new excellence program called Software Campus. For the pilot phase eleven PhD students have been selected, including me. Here I give an introduction into the concept of Software Campus as well as a short report on what has happened so far.

JavaScript graph libraries: Cytoscape vs. Sigma vs. D3

Recently, I added tags to my blog posts and scientific publications. The tags allow me to connect my articles based on keywords and topics. I use the tags to improve the navigation between articles of the same subject. Also, I can exploit the tag information for advanced visualizations such as tag graphs. In this article I compare three different tag graph implementations based on three different JavaScript libraries: Cytoscape, Sigma, and D3.
