Programming in my study field

Icon 5 Comments
It's my second year studying Industrial Management, and I love this major so far. One of the greatest things about this semester is that, I have Operations Research; a field which uses mathematics to optimize problems in the form of mathematical models(the simplified version of real-life problems actually).

So, after a presentation I had for this class, my professor and I had a brief discussion on the software available to use in the field of Operations Research and we decided to take a shot at writing one! So I decided to work with a few of the available open-source libraries and see what I can come up with. Right now I am working on SoPlex and I managed to compile a test program after hours of trying! I had a little problem with one of the libraries not being linked which caused errors in the linking process :D

The road ahead: making myself familiar with the API and then, writing an interface program for it. This is gonna be my first GUI program, and also the first program that I actually make for others to use (my classmates at first). Lets see how it goes ^^

It's pretty fun being a programmer and a domain expert. In a lot of domains, people with both skill sets are few and far between, making it a valuable niche to me in.

Indeed it is fun. And in some cases it is mandatory, because there may be no software that provides both the needed functionality and an easy-to-use interface. This is a good challenge for me to see what I can do.

I plan on studying communications and designing subterranean weapons I can put aboard satellites. Then I will develop some software to hijack and control it after it is launched. I then plan on boarding a train with several mercenaries and hold the government hostage... all while taking bids from radical extremist groups.

Oh wait... that is the plot from Under Siege 2 with Steve Segal. Ok scratch that.
