Completing a project

Posted 25 April 2008 - 07:56 PM

Well I finished the e-commerce Ive been working on the for past 6 weeks. It has a custom AES encryption component (I created), a customer credit card validation control (I created), it logs every aspect of the transaction (IP address, timestampped, the works) and it's all encrypted (the pass, salt & vector are stored in an encrypted file on a different server), and the first order came through on it tonight with no problems.

Isn't it such a great feeling when you complete a big project you're working on, and that it functions flawlessly? I get such a rush when this happens, that is how I knew many years ago that I was truly put on this planet to code.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Yes, it is great just to finish a project, it is even better when you finish a project and it works without a single flaw! - Which doesn't happen very much, unfortunately. :D

Congrats on finishing your project too! :^: ;)

Thank you, Thank you :blush: Now I get to start on an Administration control panel :)

Believe it or not the hardest thing Ive had to create was this:

You pass the stored procedure a zip code, it first checks the site table to see if we have a site for that zip code, if it doesn't then I had to calculate mileage (in miles) between all zip codes in that block (99,50, etc), then return the city id for the closest city we have a site for. If the zip code has a site associated with it then I pass back the city's id. To accomplish this I needed a table populated with all 39,000+ zip codes in the US.

Calculating the mileage between zip codes was fun, really got to use some of the math I took in college (and they tell you that you'll never need that stuff after you graduate lol)

I think I'm gonna write a tutorial on creating a "Store Locater" for a site :)

What's the reference point? Do you have to create that table yourself?

All hail the distance formula!

I just did some work with a store locator as well. WE pretty much did the exact same thing you did with the zip code table and all. Luckily for the function to calculate distances was already written by someone else. Pretty neat stuff none the less.
