Here’s part two about becoming a software developer. In the first part I told you about useful resources that will help you learn and once you’re working as a developer, those same resources will help you finish your projects. By now, you should also have a few basic computer skills. Yet if you expect me… Continue reading So, you want to be a software developer? Part 2.
So, you want to be a software developer too? Great! So, where do you start? I started with a mentor, my father. Someone who could teach me some of the more important principles, even though it still early in the World of Computers. I had to learn from books and magazines but more importantly, I… Continue reading So, you want to be a software developer? Part 1.
I’ve come up with several projects in the past and a few have been mentioned here before. For example, the Garagesale project which was based on a system I called “CART”. Or the WordChain project that was a bit similar in structure. And because those similarities, I’ve been thinking about a very generic datamodel that should be… Continue reading A very generic datamodel.

Not realizing that the… Continue reading To Agile/Scrum or not?

Basically, the data model would store the items, transactions and contracts while the templates will be stored in code, as XML structures that are serialized to objects and back again. As a result, I would split the relations from the data,… Continue reading The challenge for the CART system.
Well, my back problems made me think a lot about the CART system that I’ve mentioned before. And it made me consider how I need to handle the difference between plain data and the relationship between the objects. Because the most troubling thing I had to deal with was that I did not want to… Continue reading The CART datamodel
While working on my WordChain project (See post “The Wordchain data model.“) I reminded myself that I might have a simple problem when I have to deal with images. Since the WordChain project uses simple routing for each word, any link is most likely being translated to a word. This would require me to use… Continue reading An interesting sub-project.
It was February 14, 2013. I had the flu, but needed medicines for my Diabetes. So I had no choice, took my car to drive the 800 meters (!) from home to the apothecary to pick them up.
