Code examples

The examples listed below are often in a relatively unpolished state and don't necessarily represent complete and usable activities. Rather there're to be understood as simple proof-of-concept activities upon which further functionality can be built. (You have been warned.) As always we appreciate any comments, feedback and suggestions regarding this code.
