Looking back over all of my other blogs that I have completed this semester really made me see that I am a horrible blogger. So this being my final blog, I’m going to make it the best that I can.
From day one in this semester/class, i didn’t know wat to expect. I had heard from some of my friends that have already taken this course that it was going to be the best class that I took, that the professor taught the subject really well.
The first blog that I wrote was mainly about me, since that was the point of the first blog. The second thing that we had to write about was binary… dum dum dum. When I first saw binary, and everything that you had to do to switch between the different bases, I thought I had gotten myself into something that I wasn’t going to make it out of alive. My two other CSIT professors were also going over binary at the same time. Once I got the hang of adding and subtracting and switching bases, binary seemed like the simplest thing in the world.
Blog 3 was about building a computer. This was my favorite blog to write. I have always wanted to build my own computer, but just didn’t know how to go about doing it. Since I got the opportunity to choose the parts, and then tell how I was going to put it together, I don’t feel as intimidated as I did before. I still want to build my own desktop computer, but right now I just don’t have the funds to do so. The fourth blog that we were to write about was the Assembly Language Simulator. This was my least favorite of all the things that we did in this class. I did not understand ASL at all. I tried my hardest to understand what it was and what everything meant, but nothing was clicking for me.
The fifth blog was about making a web page. Something that I was familiar with. When Myspace was popular, I would always design and write my own html to make my page more unique than everybody else. I learned how to switch my profile around, change the colors, font, and add images, and even to input stuff that didn’t originally come with the Myspace look. When I made my own web page in here, I kind of already had a sense of what I was getting into. Blog 6, the one where we had to upload our newly made web page to a server, was the part that I learned the most. I knew there were servers out there but had never uploaded anything onto one. That was an experience.
Blog 7 was about robotics. The most fun thing about this class! I absolutely loved building a robot. My partner, Ryan, and I built a cuckoo clock. It was a simple robot, and it was really fun to build. We even documented our end results, and posted a video to youtube showing how it worked and what all we used to build our robot. Blog 8 was about artificial intelligence. This subject really made you stop and think. Blog 9 was about virtual reality and games. I personally don’t play that many games. The only time that I play games is if I’m playing with my boyfriend or if I am playing hidden object games on my laptop. I really enjoy playing hidden object games, and strategy games also. I also enjoyed playing Fable 3, which I’m going to get for my PS3. It was a very interesting game.
I’m pretty sure I hit on everything that we have covered in this class. I really enjoyed being in this class, and I know that whoever takes this class in the future will enjoy it also.
