finishing our work we had a meeting to decide what's our next step. Since
this weekend was a holiday I went to Atlanta to be with family.
week was spent understanding the code. It was kind of confusing because it
was just a big chunk of code. I had to go line by line to see what everything
does. We finished updating the article so it could match the current Facebook.
week I started my coding tasks. First I looked at what the conditions I need
to change in the old code. The old code propagates between Friends and
Networks but we only want it stay within respected categories. After some trial and error I still
havenít figured it out I hope next week would be more productive.
week I continued to struggle through my code so for I have the propagation
working in the search panel but only part of the images showed up. I asked
Dr. Lipford what could be the problem and after maybe an hour we found that
the panel wasnít big enough. Itís amazing how something so simple
as sizing could ruin the whole outcome. Hopefully next week I will be done
week I finally finished propagation with help of one of the Grad students in
the lab. I am so happy that is out of the way. I think I was making it more
complicating then it really was. We dropped in a couple of while loops, for
loops and if statements and it was done. I picked up another task this week. I
had to add an album functionality. The old code just had two albums and one
lock button closed everything and I changed it so that each album had their
own lock button functionality. My coding part is finally done and now we wait
for Jasonís approval and update.
Our Code is in its final state!! Jason,
the creator of Audience View, is currently adding the finishing touches. Now,
we are currently planning the study. My job is to work with Charisse on
getting some people to participate in the study and get some pre-setting
setup on the Audience View and Facebook profiles.
plan is to get some of the other REU students to participate. I also continued to write my finally
week we did a practice presentation in front of everyone participating in
research this summer in Computer Science. My contribution was the outline of
the slides and I also added some information to them. After the presentation,
we passed out the signup sheet so we can get some participation. We got ten people to sign up!!!
this weekend was fourth of July weekend so I flew home for the weekend. I
arrived Thursday in New Orleans. I was so excited to see my family and my boy
friend. On Friday, my boy friend and I attended the Essence Music Festival.
It was soooo much fun. J. Holiday, Rhianna, Chris Brown and Kanye West were
there. On Saturday, I attended my cousinís baby shower. And finally on
Sunday, I flew back to UNCC.
week we started our study. Things went so smoothly. The more I did it the
easier it became. We finished 9
people this week and we only have 11 left.
also continued to write my Final Paper.
weekend was slow. We basically sat around and watched TV all day.
This week all I did was continued writing
my final paper. It was slow week for me.
