And this is how it Starts…

Not with a bang, or an explosion, but with realising two things.

Firstly that I need to keep some kind of diary or notes over the next year or so relating to the internship I’ve just started. And secondly that I’ve left this alone for way longer than I really should.

Oh yeah I started an internship with the on-campus software house Seed. Been there 4 days so far, and it’s been an interesting first week. From spending days just looking over CodeProject examples, Googling and looking at StackOverflow for how to build programs in this style we’re working with to having to kill almost an entire day waiting for machines to be re-imaged and have Admin. status granted to us (at time of writing this still hasn’t happened).

So what has this week entailed? Working on the MVVM (Model-View-View Model) styling for an equipment manager that’s in turn linked to a SQL database that’s going to be in concurrent use with a MVC styled website. And when you’ve never done MVVM before that’s actually a pretty cool thing to be working with. That or I’m just crazy.

So yeah nothing major in this little update. Except that I’m back and this is going to be used more often. Like weekly.
