First GUI

Today was an eventful day. In the morning, I did my first programming in C# and made my first ever windows GUI. Yes, I understand that it is simple, but it was fun, and perhaps for the first time, Visual Studio was intuitive to use! Yes, I realize that it isn’t much of a step up from the classic “hello world” example, but the adder does work, and it even has some error handling. It was a great way to start out.

Work was work. I managed to help out on the design of some modification requests, refined a couple of queries, and started testing some program changes. Work could really use some more of my time and dedication, but school is taking more effort than it usually does. After a meeting with one of our projects business owners, I decided that I would head home and work on school.

As it turns out, I ended up spending part of the afternoon in the hospital with the family, as my grandmother (mom’s side) ended up having a problem that required medical attention. Thank goodness it wasn’t a heart attack or stroke like the emergency crew thought it was. They are home now, but the hospital did take some time.

This evening, I worked on setting up an instance of CVS for the group project that I am working on in software practice. I was somewhat intimidated by CVS at first, but after playing with it for a bit, I have decided that it is actually a pretty cool tool. I am having some problems with it when it comes to consolidating different branches of code, but the GUI I am using says that it is a manual process anyway. I need to play with it some more tomorrow, but it has been good getting to understand how it works.
