The last day of school is finally here, and this will probably be my final blog here at Pellissippi. Although I may end up starting my own website again at one of the domains I already own. Previously, I had hosted my blog at Squarespace.com. Which is a great hosting site, but it cost 10$-15$ a month. After this semester, in the next week or two, I plan on buying an older quad core system and downloading Apache, and do all my own hosting instead for free.
Overall I thought this class was excellent, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a recommendation. This has been one of the more interesting classes, even though it is just the entry level course. I really enjoyed how each week was like a different class that I can sign up for at PSCC, it really helped me understand what I would like to do with my major. Before this class, I knew I wanted to do something with computers, but it was kind of just a vague goal that I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to pursue. Getting to experience a little taste of all the different fields I can get into, I look forward to taking more classes in the computer science department. I think I want to take more database classes, and continue to further my eductation in Java.
I really enjoyed using Greenfoot, and using the Javabot during the 2 Lego weeks. I had been taking a Java class as well during this semester, and it was really great to apply the skills I have learned into a video game or controlling a robot. I will continue to use Java during the summer, and will probably look at Greenfoot again, and try making a new video game. The other thing I had really liked about this class were the videos that were played on Fridays. Half the videos were very informative, and the other half were essential in the history/culture of the internet. I’m going to miss this class, but I’m hoping I can get into another one of Dr. Brown’s classes next semester.
