I’ve now added a couple of my computing projects to my website. Both were created using Microsoft’s Visual Basic, a programming software. You can download and try them out if you like by following the links below (You need to be on a computer that runs on Microsoft Windows… sorry Linux and Mac users, though you could use Wine). I will add download links to the source files sometime in the not so distant future, for those who would like it.
The one project was purely to create a calculator that could add, subtract, multiply and divide. But I wanted to push it further and because I had learnt how to calculate binary and hexadecimal digits in Maths, I included binary conversion as well with the option to copy and paste values into the calculator. Incorporating binary conversion wasn’t too problematic because, as I mentioned before, we had learn about it in Maths and I had gone onto creating a spreadsheet version which can also carry out the same calculation when values are entered. I still need to include hexadecimal conversion to the calculator.
The other project was to create vending machine. All it had to do was function, and be able to vend an item that a user had chosen after the right amount of money was entered. Any situations where the running of the vending machine would be outside the norm, like the user not inserting enough money for example, it was made sure they could be correctly resolved, such as displaying a message.
I’m glad to announce that my website is finally been updated after such a long time. It’s more the style that has been changed rather than the content, but it was necessary as I couldn’t expand the site. So now I have a better structured site I can start adding things.
Also I now have a functioning blog! Yay!
With the use of a blog, you can now keep up to date with what I’m up to. So if you wish to, please sign up to my newsletter to the right of this blog.
As I am now doing a Computing degree, my site will not only just be for artwork, but will also contain projects I’m currently working on during my course.
As I mentioned, there isn’t much on the site at the moment, but there will be soon. So stay tuned!
