End of the Summer

I haven't really kept up on my blog this summer, so as the summer is over, I figured I'd get in one last post about everything.

This is a very common question across the forums, and one that I'd like to address for the askers. Before you post this question on the forums, try to narrow it down so you can get better help and recommendations. Start with the following:

My First Two Days at My Internship

Icon 7 Comments
Thursday was my first day on the job and my internship, and it has definitely been an interesting experience all the way around, though maybe not a traditional internship or job, as my boss is entirely results-oriented.

My First Freelancing Job

Icon 13 Comments
In addition to my internship, I have another job programming this summer. Before school let out, one of the assistant principals (AP) at my school approached me about writing a program for him. With the AP in charge of the master schedule retiring, he is taking over this responsibility, and asked me to write a Drag-and-Drop application to do this....

When Classroom Meets Reality

Icon 8 Comments
As many of you all know, I have been working tirelessly for the past few months on my final exam grade in my Web Design and Development class- my nonprofit website project. The way the teams were broken down is that we had a combination of sophomores in the Project Management class and Juniors in the Web class on each team. The sophomores were...

Applications of Algorithms on the AP Computer Science Exam

Icon 2 Comments
With the AP Comp Sci exam coming up in 2 days, I'd like to cover two algorithms that show up enough in the multiple choice to warrant some attention. These two algorithms are Binary Search and Bubblesort. Usually, these algorithms don't show up verbatim. Instead, you will see modifications to or applications modeled after these...

Reviewing for the AP Computer Science A Exam

So today, I went to my last AP Computer Science review session via the grant. We went over some sample multiple choice for the one session I attended out of four (I also had AP Calculus and AP Statistics today), and Mr. Billington (the speaker from TJ Governor's School in Northern Virginia) passed out a breakdown of the Multiple Choice...

AP Computer Science Review Sessions

For those of you who don't know, my high school is sponsored by a non-profit organization designed to bolster the number of STEM qualified high school students. It does this by working to increase passing scores of students in AP Math, Science, and English courses. Some of the perks of this grant include Saturday review sessions with AP...

Best Ways to Ask for and Provide Help on DIC

Icon 2 Comments
The other day in the Java forum, a fairly typical student request with the question in the title and a smiley in the body type thread was opened, but it took a unique turn for the worse. When a couple of the regs gently reiterated the rules to the OP, another member (with only 11 posts!) came in and started flaming them. It then bled out of...

AP Computer Science Approach

Icon 6 Comments
As of this year, College Board essentially canned the AP Computer Science AB course (Intro to Programming in College + Data Structures), leaving only the AP Computer Science A course, which I am enrolled in this year. While I enjoy having a relatively advanced programming class in high school (again, relative to high school, not college), the AP...
