Pollution

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

The magic word for today is pollution, database pollution to be exact. Due to the technologies that I’m working with, the data returned can’t be fully relied upon. So basically I’ll have to determine if it’s even possible to rely on this unreliable data. It’s going to be interesting… very interesting indeed.

Work Experience

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

I started work at my new company on July 2, 2007. Since then I’ve been put in charge of and finished programming a business intelligence application. There was some guidance on what technologies to implement, but besides pointing me to where to look, they didn’t need to do much else. I’m very excited about how my script provides some of the data that our company uses, and it’s very possible that much more is going to be built upon that foundation. I’ve also learned a lot in regards to multi curling, and it is often implemented in my scripts. I’ve coded scripts that interact with APIs in both the URL based parameter transmission and SOAP based transmission.

After completing a bunch of projects in a more than satisfactory time frame and manner, I’ve been put in charge of helping further the relativity component of the company. It has always been a desire of my company to have internationalized relativity, and they have put me in charge of it. Working with internationalization is both interesting and frustrating. It is interesting because relativity is a very important thing to the company and if I expand it, I grow my company’s market by many folds, but at the same time, it’s very hard to develop due to the fact that I’m working with an alien language, alien requirements, and all the unfamiliar things that can go wrong between the interaction of my code, the alien language, and the APIs.

 As with any project, I hope it is super readable, super efficient, and done super fast.
