Any ideas for my project? Really simple

Posted 27 September 2008 - 04:49 AM

I'm open for a wide variety of ideas on this one:
I am taking an IGCSE Computing AS course this year, and the practical phase of this course involves that students should select a problem, the solution to which will enable them to demonstrate their skills at problem solving. The programming language that I have selected for this project is Visual Basic.
Any project ideas? Come on, anything!! I have a few ideas, but I want to get some feedback on this. Anything will help! Thanks in advance!

Find something that you use in another program and make a program that fills that need. Of coarse this will depend on the level your on in Visual Basic. I did the same thing and am making my own type of NotePad. ^_^

It depends on your knowledge.

If you feel like you're capable of jumping in at the deep end, go for a big piece of software. If you can get it on SourceForge, that's even better.

Visual Basic~ are you using the .NET framework then?
If so, take advantage of it. Make a real nice GUI and show off.

As for "problem solving" how about some kind of scientific calculator? With cos, sin, tan, etc~

Like the Windows calculator.

Just out of curiosity, where are you from? AFAIK, AS level is only done in GB but I didn't get the opportunity to do programming at AS :(
