New Project

by

Well, we're a ways through June and it's time for another blog post. I've had a few things keeping me busy, mostly my job. I am a working at Washington University doing research under a professor and a few graduate students. Most of my work involves writing bash scripts to evaluate biological data. I feel very at home in a command line and I enjoy learning new tools. It's a challenge, but I'm having a lot of fun with it.

I updated the website a little bit. I'm always cleaning up the CSS and making things look a bit nicer. The projects page has seen most of these updates.

I have also begun work on a new project, titled LearnALanguage. It's based on the awesome JavaScript learning tool Codecademy but intended for Java. The project is daunting to say the least, but I've learned so much about the intricacies of Java through this project. I'm planning to write a much more in-depth post about the program when I first release it. It's coming along very nicely: It's at the point where a user can enter a program, compile it, and run it, all within a single window. The next step will be to add lessons, but that's the fun part!
