Today I learned the basics of making a website using the shodor server. I also learned how to change my password in login credentials.
I used a mac based software to create a basic structured website. I never new I would learn using a macintosh (I'm a windows fan).
I hoping to learn more about html and css. I want to learn how to implement them into a complex web design.
Ernie helped us the most because he was mainly the only person who taught us today. He taught us how to set up basic Shodor information and credentials.
I helped Armaan Syed by helping him analyze problems within accessing his website.
October 17th 2015
The thing that i learned that i was most excited about was adding html content to my website.
I was most proud of learning CSS styling. I am curious to learn more about applying css more in my website.
Nick helped me the most because he helped me find errors I made in my html.
I helped Armaan when he tried creating a directory in directory on his site.
October 24th 2015
I'm excited from learning sftp clienting the shodor server.
Remade my website to get approved so I can re-upload my stylized version.
I am hoping to learn more about vim in putty.
Ernie helped me the most by helping me setup notepad++ in WinScp.
I helped Shawn to fix his css file so he could refer to it in html.
November 7th 2015
I am most excited about the use of excel spreadsheets to make models. The things that you can do in excel fascinate me.
What I did that I'm most proud of was learning Excel equations and how to make models through the spreadsheet.
I am hoping to learn more about Excel equations so I can make more models that are relevant to real life problems in today's world.
Dr.Panoff helped me the most today for when I had problems, he helped me troubleshoot them and explained to me how to fix problems when I can't pinpoint the source of the trouble maker.
I helped Nick catch up when he missed some excel equation modeling work.
November 14th 2015
I am most excited about learning modeling on VenSim.
This week I am most proud of learning how to model Variables and show graphs on VenSim.
I am hoping to learn more about Ven Sim programs and to fix my model.
Dr.Panoff helped me the most by teaching me VenSim and helping me with errors.
I helped Nick by un-confusing him through VenSim.
November 21st 2015
I missed this week because of my trip to Pakistan.
I have to make up what I missed with Dr. Panoff.
December 5th 2015
This week I spitballed ideas for Vensim, Excel, and Agentcubes for our project.
I made a Vensim Diagram for our Project so we could model Artificial Intelligence.
Last week I missed Shodor, so I have to make up the Agent Cubes lesson.
I had help from Dr. Panoff to create a Vensim Model.
I worked with Armaan to start our project for Artificial Intelligence.
December 12th 2015
This week we (Armaan and I) worked on our Shodor Artificial Intelligence Project.
We created our Excel Model and Vensim Model, and brainstormed for our Agent Cubes model.
We worked really fast because this is due next week.
Dr. Panoff helped us simplify our Vensim model to make it actually seem understandable.
December 19th 2015
Today Armaan and I finished our Artificial Intelligence Project.
We worked diligently to fix errors in our website (although it still had a few).
We presented our Projects after lunch. Most of them were really appealing.
Everyone was dressed in business casual, we all looked like we worked at Shodor.

Well its a new year and I haven't got much to say about that.

As well as that we learned that just because a variable is undefined doesn't mean it's non-essential to the program. Also we found out that an array is an object. I created several functions today.
First, I created one that could add numbers, and then I later created ones that could multiply, divide, and subtract. We practiced arrays by making a "person" and a "fruit basket". Aaron's bouncing particle model helped us to create new objects, loops, and learn more about variables.

Today I was absent because I had to be elsewhere for another activity I am doing, but I heard that people made a parallel computing notebook and completed assignments in it. The idea is to create a notebook in which one must input data of what they learned throughout an activity and answer questions regarding the specific activity.
April 16th 2016
*FINAL DAY OF SPRING SHODOR*
Today I was filled in on my parallel notebook and created a notebook in which I answered assignments in. We learned about Blue Waters supercomputer, Shodor's supercomputer Little Fe, and we hooked up all our computers to create a supercomuter. This was really interesting as an experience of turning a computer into a supercomputer in which we could control programs and run simulations.

Missed Shodor due to sickness.
June 21st, 2016
Today I caught up on Shodor work by making the HLD document and getting feedback on it. I have caught up with summer duties, and now learned about the O.D.A.A. in which summer duties are applied.
June 22nd, 2016
Today I finished my first draft for my HLD and had many people revise it. I also had Armaan help me with parts of my websites that I had to go over. Ernie went over my HLD and gave me some great feedback on it. I learned more about the ODAA duties that we need to do when assigned. I wasn't assigned one this week because I wasn't here on Monday due to sickness. I learned more about other projects that we are supposed to do such as a responsive website project, and an HLD for redesigning my website.

Today I returned to Shodor from a weekend of vacation, which results in me being tired. Anyhow, I was still able to get a lot of needed work done. I worked on my Agent Cubes model, and helped Akash fix an error in his html. In my Agent Cubes model, I worked on adding a time aspect to help my agents have an "energy" and "age" attribute. I also added more to my agent rules so it would fit the HLD from Darius. Overall Today was productive and I hope to have the same success tomorrow.
June 28th, 2016
Today we worked more on our block one projects. I worked on my inkscape and gimp projects and finished my Agent Cubes Model. I also worked on photoshopping Ernie as that was a project we were recently just assigned. This project was pretty cool since Photoshopping + Ernie = Crazyness.

June 30th, 2016
I started out today with documentation from ODAA. All I can say is that it was very boring. Taking notes was very easy and so was writing the reports. I took photos and a camera died on me. I had to learn lots of stuff as well because I didnt't know Objective-C. The rest of the day I worked on work I needed to work on for my work as it was work that needed to be worked on.
July 1st, 2016
Last day of block 1. I've been finishing up my inkscape and gimp files by uploading them, and made changes to my agent cubes. I've finished up on my projects and now I'm getting ready to go to California for a vacation.

Today I worked on PHP projects for block 3. I made a website that creates a random hex-code for a background color. I started out by working on the random character generator by making an array of characters, then used those to make a hex-code and make a background color.

I managed to finish all my other PHP projects, they took time because of the days I missed. I am now fully complete of the work I had to do in block 3, and now will learn MySQL tomorrow.
August 9th, 2016
I started out the day with a crash course of mysql from Keith, and learned the way of making databases using terminal. After playing around with it, Ernie gave me a course of mysql on how to use it and how it worked. With him I created a database of people to test.
August 10th, 2016
I started my database of a shopping list and learned how to implement sql code in php. I also learned how to double reference an entry from html to php to mysql. I will continue to work on my database to finish what I started today. Aaron helped by helping me debug the code.
August 11th, 2016
I finished making my shopping list database and worked ore on my php section to create an interface for it. I added an input box and ordered my php to display entries into a visual table.
August 12th, 2016
I added more input boxes into the form so I could easily add data. I had to drop my table a couple of times to reset the auto id. The biggest challenge I faced was finiding what caused the error, which was deleting entries.
August 15th, 2016
Today I added more input boxes and check boxes for my database php. This was challenging because I had to make an abundance of if-statements to make sure that the input variables would run correctly with the sql statement.
August 16th, 2016
Today I finished adding the code for debugging the input boxes and made changes to my website to upload projects all over the summer. During the second half I had reception in which I continued that. In all I finished my work for the day.
August 17th, 2016
Today I fixed my calendar for lots of bugs I had. I had to add more to the tables and remake my date counter which Shawn and Jim helped me do. I secured my php by adding form validation to my database, my background selector php, and my calendar (which was easier than I thought).
