Blog Entry for the Week Ending March 3rd

by Hilgendorf, Grady last modified Mar 03, 2017 10:43 AM
A re-cap of things that I did during this week, problems I have run into, and what I plan to accomplish before the next post. Week 1: February 27th - March 3rd.

This Weeks Progress

Personal Project

For a personal project from the book about projects containing only 500 lines of code or less, I have chosen to work on the pedometer. A program that takes the acceleration data from the device and records it in the App. This project will be using the language Ruby, which I have no history with but it seemed like a challenge.

Group Project

This week, during the face to face meeting with my team, we have come up with all the pieces of code that we will need to grab from various places and commands that we will need to run to install Plone on a Windows operating system. The things we need to grab and how we are going to grab them are simple, The hard part is getting the installer to continue running after the first restart that we need to perform. It seems that we are well ahead of the timeline in the project but it could be harder that we think.

Personal Goals Completed

My goals for the last week were to watch the tutorial of Python on Lynda, which was interesting. The basics of Python is to set up an automation that will do certain things once the program starts to run. While we had no task talked about or claimed, we made progress towards the goal of making the installer for Plone on Windows.

For Next Week

Goals for next week

The goals for the next week are as follows. First, I will need to start learning about Ruby and how the syntax works. Second, I am going to try out a small python build to see how it runs. Lastly, we will discuss tasks that should be worked on to make some sort of progress towards our goal, but it is not really needed.

That is all for this week. I have a lot on my plate for this week but I am determined to get it all done.
