For those following along, I have made very little progress on my Sun Finder application since Career Day about a month ago. Since hindsight is 20/20, I probably could have seen this coming, but I was living in a blissful imaginary world that said: “There will be all this time after I graduate to do all these things”. The reality is that all that time was about to be commandeered by interviews, practice & studying for interview and a bunch of life stuff that you can never plan for.
I do plan to get back to Sun Finder, and I’ve already started the process to get it online for friends who tell me they keep finding themselves in situations where they want to use it. I hit a bit of a snag while going through the posting process, and there are some errors that I need to work through. As soon as that’s done, I’ll share the location.
Now don’t get me wrong, there is still so much to build out and fix on it, and if you look at my code on GitHub you can see a running list of my top items. Still I want to get something live so I’ve gone through the process and know how to do it. I’m a big believer in putting a stake in the ground and getting something out for consumption. It will never be perfect and others can call out issues for you that you can’t see from being so close to it. Plus being a newbie to this field, I can definitely use guidance from others who have more expertise on more optimal ways to build the app’s functionality.
For the curious, here are screenshots to show you want it looks like: nyghtowl.github.io.
Also, I posted a README file on the GitHub project site to give an overview.
As always more to come.
