What did you do over the summer?

Posted 08 September 2012 - 09:58 AM

Summer is coming to an end, unfortunately. I'd like to hear what everyone has done over the summer. I ended up going to PAX Prime and Bumbershoot (a music festival). PAX was pretty cool, I got to see the League of Legends North America Regionals (link). At Bumbershoot I got to see some M83, Two Fresh, and Skrillex. So I had a pretty good summer I think. What about you guys?

I worked, but also took a few trips:
  • Upstate New York to visit some relatives.
  • Philly with some friends to visit another friend from college.
  • Blacksburg with friends. I actually brought 3 dozen live blue crabs from Richmond, and we steamed them that evening.
  • Myrtle Beach with my family.

Work and school for the most part. Four different weddings of friends/family, luckily they all took place in the same town. Aside from that a pretty uneventful summer.

I worked on a personal project to help people learn japanese. I am not a japanese speaker myself, but I used some lessons in some books i have and made creative methods to help people memorize things. Its pretty much completed, and I will be making a web app out of it.

Why Japanese?

EDIT: I forgot to ask, but do you intend to help people learn to just speak the language? Or to write it as well?

Worked, lifted weights, hung out with my girlfriend, and worked on sharpening my skills with PHP, C#, and Java.

This summer was a good one :)

Why Japanese?


I have an interest in it, plus Japanese as a language, is perhaps a bit more heavy on pure memorization than some western ones. I figured it might help people to have creative solutions to memorizing things beyond mere flash cards, my method helps ensure conceptual understanding, and im trying to limit the users ability to use lazy memorization tactics (for example, if you merely memorized how to spell your name as opposed to knowing why your name is spelled that way). Also, because of how in demand it is among internet folk :P

edit: my software is more geared towards reading for now.
