I’ve been enjoying college life so much for the last two months that blogging was completely out of my mind. But now that the excitement has died down a bit, I think it’s time that I did started blogging regularly. Though I’ve always been interested in computers and I’ve always loved programming, I never really had the chance to any real work. Sure I’ve done work for CS courses and tried my hand at making a personal website, but nothing really serious.
However that’s changed, as a direct result of coming to college. One of the projects for one of my classes is to make a web biography of an alumnus of our college who went on to win a Nobel Prize. As it turns out, I’m the only one in the class (including the professor) who has even the faintest idea of how to go about setting up a website. So I get to be de facto webmaster. I only started really playing around with HTML and CSS earlier this year, so it’s good to have a real project to work on. Though I don’t intend to be a web designer for a living, it is one of those skills that every self-respecting computer scientist should possess. The project is still in the early stages, but I already have a template designed, and I’ve asked for space on the college servers to put it up and do proper testing. I’ll post a link here once it’s online.
Two new projects and quite a bit to learn. And my normal classes along with that. Throw blogging regularly into the mix and things might get nasty, but I’m ready for it. I promised myself that I would get the most out of my college years and it makes sense to start early. See you all tomorrow.
