Everyone, as you all know, on my previous posts I am working on a project, the Genesis Project that would help on interested individuals wanted to get a head start on their projects. This would teach them PDO or PHP Data Objects that are flexible than the usual MySQL connection which we all know has become obsolete. So starting on this project I am already on the 36th hour going to 40 based on the my logs and I am already starting out the enrollment process which I plan to continue on the coming weeks. It’s just now, moving on my new career as a SAP Consultant, I got interested setting up the SAP Cloud Platform.
I am still getting on the details later on my journey, I just wanted to set up first the environment to this new endeavor that I am headed to. This would require me a JAVA Development Environment ready and set up first. This SAP Cloud Platform allow us to develop cloud based apps. There are several solutions you can choose from based on these platform which is Java, XCS and HTML5. I’ve been avoiding this Java since college days, during my youth I just wanted the first way out, just to pass, just submit the requirements and I am on my own. But here we are, chasing the inevitable. I hope I could get something out of this new direction in my career as a programmer. SAP, HANA to be exact runs in MVC as it was introduced to us by the other teams that already exert their effort learning these things. MVC has been already part of my work ever since, I can’t imagine that we will meet again in this platform.
10 years before my college friends always says, everyone and everything is going Web, well we are not wrong. Probably it evolved to a more sophisticated architecture and renamed, but it’s all the same. You can follow this tutorial if you want to install it in your machine.
The project is in smooth sailing, it’s been a while I put up an update regarding the system progress so here it is. There is a already a lot of going on with in terms of code, the design has been re-engineered and will be back with the details on a later time. Currently I already logged an estimated 32 hours of work in the project, I know it should be due this month well the effort is different from the actual time line being rendered. Anyways, I am tracking the progress from a spreadsheet created in Google Sheets.
I am listing down the functionalities of the system and from there they obtain a number that will be the reference for all sub functionalities or updates regarding the main function. I am already updated the database, optimizing some tables and fields for faster performance. I already have a few bugs under my sleeve, luckily I already extinguished those bugs. Currently the system already saving information about the students and already have the listing of the existing students. Improvements on this module and changes is still underway, the focus is on the flow of the system first and setting all the necessary variables and information to create a class, assigning teachers and validation if ever there is a need to create a section. Also the capabilities to have an inquiry sheet, this is where the potential students can be saved well virtually they are not enrolled, yet, but they should be in the system already by the time they decided to enroll, the system is readily to activate them as students.
There are a lot of potential in the system, I am not saying it will be great, but it will be awesome.
Up to the next update guys!
I put the Genesis Project aside first and focus what entity should hold the project and future projects for that matter. I created RATLABS, this will be a web design organization that will be headed, of course, by me.
Why create RATLABS? I believe that your biological name is the greatest brand you will ever have, but my name is a bit mouthful so I created an acronym of it. I will not give it away it here, for mysterious effect purposes, but somewhere in the brand that has my name on it go figure. So why? I just need an entity to hold my projects so there is another layer of ambiguity.
I set aside the project for a few weeks, and I already charged just a week of work on my logs. From March when I started the Genesis Project I worked on research and some sample codes for preparation of the project. I put effort on the UI of the project but there are still a lot to do and some few tweeks I need to put on the canvass. There are a lot of going on basically with the project and I think this is a good venue to put it all in the new brand.
