Notes on codes, projects and everything
Generally, library holds a wide variety of reading materials and providing ample space for quiet study. A full range of services is provided in a library, such as loan, reservation, inter-library loan, reference, online resource, document delivery, photocopying, audiovisual and microform materials.
Initially, the library transactions are handled manually by the library staff. The references are stored using the filing system. This tradition method has raised many inconveniences to the library staff.
Hence, you are required to do some research on the problems that faced by the conventional library management system, and then develop a computerized library system by using the ASP.NET.
A master page is used to set up a consistent look and feel to the website. However, since it is not being discussed in class, therefore we had got to learn that ourselves. We implemented a simple master page to the website and separate the layout and data presenting element using a stylesheet file. The tool used to develop the assignment is Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition.
Following included are the screenshots for some main functions.
After reading through the documentation, I find that the role based ACL and work flow can be more tightly integrated. Therefore I made all the transaction into many FSMs and my work flow component now consists of one work flow library and one work flow management model. As I am going a more normalized design (I use denormalized design in work as it deals with a lot of documents, however for a small project like mine, a denormalized design should do well).
I like how Kohana 3 organizes the classes, and I thought the same thing may be applied to my Zend Framework experimental project. Basically what this means is that I can name the controller class according to PEAR naming convention, and deduce the location of the file by just parsing the class name.
This is the formal draft of my statistical analysis report for the social audit project previously mentioned here. As the project is public by nature, I am cross-posting here for own reference.(more…)
The Sports Tracker app for my awesome Nokia N9 is not receiving any updates and doesn’t look like things are going to change any time soon. Recently the development team at Sports Tracker published a status update post and sadly there’s no mention of N9 port at all. It’s really sad considering how incomplete the N9 port is at the moment (horrible GPS positioning, no pedometer to name a few).
Just survived a job interview, so I should probably celebrate this despite the outcome. Well, considering I was off the job market for a couple of years, I probably has all the reason to be nervous. Anyway, like most
geeky serious job interview, there are a test given by the company to the attendees.
