Goodbye 2012

tainsville.wordpress.com

Hello good people, I promised y’all a post. This is actually an end of the year rant. The world didn’t come to an end after-all😃

Its been a crazy year with more lows than highs. Career-wise, I have become more enthusiastic about programming, especially web programming, and technology as a whole. I have developed a couple of apps: photo sharing( I did only two major functionalities) like pin-interest, instant messenger( single client), payroll etc. I also got an invite to write on a tech site. I’ll be sharing the links on here too.

I have a couple of things I want to change on this blog, starting from the interface to the content. I’ll probably just design one. I haven’t really done what birthed this blog, but its just been my first year and I wasn’t expecting miracles.

Emotionally, naah…this isn’t a diary, I never even had a diary, personal stuffs should remain so. It accounts for the the higher number of drafts compared to actual posts. I put too much of myself in those drafts. Maybe, I wont mind in 2013.

Thanks to those who have been reading my inconsistent attempt at blogging, and of course! thanks for the referrals! this is hoping I’ll be consistent next year. Wishing y’all a good year, stay scheming.

I’m posting this from my mobile, not sure how it would turn out.

My Payroll App

Hello, good people of the interwebs…this blog is looking really unfamiliar right now lol. Have been crazily busy with school stuff, the holidays have come to my rescue. 249 days from now and I would be worrying about other stuffs.

Someone suggested I publish a post about what have been up to, though I think he was joking ‘cos I doubt he reads my blog. Anyways, I decided to heed to his advice.

After undergoing six months internship, I was required to build an application to solve a problem I discovered where I interned. This has translated to months of sleepless nights and I didn’t shut down Silver (my laptop) till the 19th. A lot of things come into play when building applications, especially a web application. The interface has to be perfect, not too flashy and not too drab, and it has to be doing what it was developed for.

I chose to automate their payroll system. It has two major modules, the admin and employee modules. It processes information about employees and has a security level for each user through which unauthorized users are not allowed to view or modify data. The methodology used is the SSADM (Structured System Analysis and Design Methodology). I won’t bore y’all with unnecessary details.

The User interfaces was built upon the technological framework of conventional C-sharp applications. The primary interface of the system with the user is through forms. Input design specifies how data are accepted for processing. The user interface was designed with user friendliness in mind.

In order to develop the payroll management system, a database system was put in place to simulate the payroll process. The database system created plays a major part for enforcing and strengthening the security of the system, sticking to the rules data consistency, data dependency, non-redundancy and data Integrity. Personally, the database was the hardest part. I spent not less than a month designing the database.

I was going to create a slideshow for snapshots of the system I built but I couldn’t find the wordpress plugin, any more dilly-dallying and this post won’t be up till God knows when, So I just included a couple of pictures.
