After a good week off in Jamaica with the family, I got back and was immediately going through a series of interviews. After a couple of weeks of interviews, I have finally received a job offer with Verizon Wireless as a Member-Applications Staff. The position will be in New Jersey. I am scheduled to start in Mid-July.
New Symposium Registration SystemOther exciting news, I have decided to rewrite my old symposium registration system I wrote for the Innovation Center. The old system was a last minute request with a two day deadline. It served its purpose, a little clunky, but worked. I was then requested to add the ability to add support for multiple symposiums with less then a week deadline when the next symposium came up.
Because of this the code was very poor and held together with quick and messy hacks, I figured I should leave the center with a much better and more complete system. So I decided to spend a few days between all the interviews to do a re-write. Like the old system, the new one is written in web2py. You can find a copy Licensed under GPLv3 on git hub.
Here is a list of some of it's features:
- User Accounts
- Email Verification
- Profiles (new)
- Symposium Management (new interface)
- Registration period
- Event Date
- Papers registered to each symposium
- Scheduling Agenda (new interface)
- Review Process (new)
This system should help out with managing symposiums. The new system supports multiple symposiums as well as a review process which is hopefully a nice improvement over the old system.
I also wrote an Inventory system a while back that is also available under GPLv3 on git hub as well.
Well I got a few more weeks of summer before I start my new Career. More information to come!
