Changed the location of my Porcupine OS project. It now has its own website!!!!! :)
I added some share buttons to my article! Although the share buttons aren't vertically lined up so they look like they're jumping up and down. There is also a button/link at the top to my GitHub account which is where I'll store the source code for my software projects. The smaller and simpler programs that I write will still be hosted on my website.
And I fixed a few more behind-the-scenes stuff.
And of course a countdown to my favorite Linux distribution!
Fixed a few behind-the-scenes stuff for the website. I'm also drawing a new logo for my Porcupine OS project. I should have a new logo drawn by tonight.
Added a new logo to the top! It's for raising awareness of why Ada is a great programming language.
It took a couple extra days, but I wrote two brief "Hello, world" programs. Both programs are in a single zip file available on my Programs page. The first one is basic. The second one uses an Ada Task to do the same thing, but potentially executes faster because of how an Ada Task works. The program executes a task concurrently. This usually means that the CPU doesn't have to wait for a section of your code to finish executing in order to continue. It can switch to the other part at any time and then switch back. This is very good if your program needs to do several things at once.
I will have another program or two soon.
Didn't pass :( Oh well. I'll try again soon. But for now I wrote an article on How to Compile Simple Ada Programs from the command line. It's for simple programs and for when you don't need to have project files.
I have now changed all of my website to be HTML5. I'm also going to concentrate more on my Porcupine OS project.
Just a few more days before I take the test!! I'm still studying pretty hard, so nothing much is new. Except that I changed the main page to use HTML5! The rest of the site will follow soon. You guys shouldn't notice much, its mostly behind-the-scenes stuff. Although, please be sure to use a recent version of your favorite web browser. Older web browsers are unable to handle HTML5 features.
I'll be posting a couple of my example programs and an article(!) after I take the exam on Monday. Later.
Started a new project!! Its called Porcupine OS. Right now I'm gathering some documentation and researching what is going to be needed to take on such a huge project. So there's not much on the site right now, but I should have a project outline soon.
I'm still studying for that Oracle exam, so that's taking the majority of my time.
Back to programming!! Hi everyone! Its been quite a while since I updated my website. I had it setup mostly as a photography website, but now its going back to a more general programming blog. Right now I'm studying for the second exam for an Oracle database certification: OCA Oracle Database 11g 1Z0-052. Its tough trying to remember all of the different things needed to be a database administrator.
I took down the portfolio pictures and replaced it with a page for all the different programs that I'll put up. Right now there's nothing, but pretty soon there'll be a couple of programs that I wrote a while ago. Also, I'm leaving the articles section up because I plan to write some programming articles too.
