Hi, my name's Darnell Keith Coleman Jr.. The school I attend is "The" Wonderfull Morehouse College located in
I am a Computer Science major with a niche
for business. I am currently in my senior year and will be finishing my undergraduate degree December of 2013. Please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
My research mentor's name is Juan E. Gilbert. He's the chair of Human-Centered
Computing here at Clemson University,
where he also directs a lab. He is definitely one of the biggest names here at Clemson University, especially in the departments of computer science and throughout the field
of Human Centered Computing(HCC). Here, check out his website: www.juangilbert.com
Being that I am well verse in web
development, I have choosen to take on the
task of the online voting portal, PRIMEIII.
This system is one that will allow all
individual the tight to vote no matter
what the disability, through speech, breath,
touch and voice. More specifically, I will be
creating the online ballot creator so that
administrators will be able to create their
own elections/ballots. This task will
intensely test my overall web skills, and I am
ready for the challenge.
First week was great. I was able to settle
in and get ready for the week. Clemson
is definitely a beautiful campus. Monday
I was able to meet a couple of people
even though it was Memorial Day.
Everyone was cool and seemed to be very
happy about being here. We had a cookout
the same day as well. Tuesday
I went into the lab and
met the people who
I would be working
with. The project
taking on is
This will be very
nice since I not only
websites but the backend
I what I most love.
This week was very good. I designed the
first part of the usern interface for the
primeIII ballot creator tool. I actually
found my self asking for more work.
I'm pretty sufficient in html and css so
it did take very long to complete that
first task. I really can't wait until I
start interacting with the
database though. Thats
what I really enjoy.
The joy of server
response. I am
having lots of
fun and everyone
I am around is
and keeping each
other very mottivated.
I wonder what the
upcoming week will hold for me.
I was still finishing some add on features
of the user interface for the sign up
and sign in potions of the portal.
There were a couple of corrections
needed to be made as well. Its definitely
allot of going back and fourth to make
sure you not only meet the group
requirements but the advisor,
requirements as well.
He wasn't too
stiff on what we
smooth and the
jokes and laughs
around the lab we
quite amusing. I also got
to tamper with the database
as well. That was pretty cool. I've really never ssh through the command line to work on the database. So far everything has been great and I really like everything.
The week was great everything is falling in place with the interface and I tell you it is really some work. I really enjoy this but i never really had a challenge like this. I know when I complete this project there will not be anything concerning web development thats past my experience or intelligence. My graduate advisor is really liking how it looks and everthing. I have a great feeling about how it is turning out, and I know Dr. Gilbert will be excited about our group's progress as well. I know I am. Next week I will be completely done with the functionality and will be adding the database to start saving information. I have really created a survey monkey interface and it is almost all the way functional. It's truly something.
I finally finished the last edting function for the ballot creator and boy was it a little challenge but I stayed at it. I am now about to start writting the php and connecting everything to the database. There are a couple of more questions that Dr. Gilbert needs to answer before we can move foward but everything is looking ahead of schedule as of now. That's the most exciting part for me anyway. I love php. Im ready to start logging information in though.
Work is looking good; I'm still working
on connecting PHP scripts and storing
information on the database. The flow
of the site is working great and my
group member thinks we are ahead of
schedule. In about two weeks
everything should be good to go. We had
a group meeting this week about
the trip we would be taking
to Orlando, Florida in
a couple weeks. We
are going to
have a great
time. We are
Last week was great. I got alot of work
done. Fortunately, I was able to finish
up on database connections. I am
currently still adding scripts and
making smooth ajax calls. I am
prepping the backend for the different
phases of this website, like storing and
bringing back inforamation. A site
like this has to be able to
send and get back
demand. The site
how a jotform
The trip is
next week, and
I am so excited.
This is the week of our trip. I am going to
have so much fun. We actually leave
today, yes!!!! I had a great time. I mean
it was exactly what I expected. This
started my week off super right. This
week we had no meeting but you better
believe work still got done. All scripts
are now working, and I am storing and fetching information from
the database with bugs
Everything is good and working we have
a meeting this week. He liked it. A lot of
people didn't think I would be able to
accomplish my goal. Look at me now.
I've done it and it feels good.
My last meeting was this week and
everything was good. I want to say
thank you to the DREU program and
thank you Dr. Gilbert for giving me a
chance. I wish everyone well.
The summer was great. I pushed my self to
places I have never taken myself. This was
actually my first research and Dr. Gilbert
has said nothing but high things about
me. It hasn't been easy, but I new that
given the opportunity I was going
to come out on top no matter what.
I would like to thank who all believed
in me. I also would like to thank who
ever didn't believe in me; I think they
pushed me the most. I would like to
say thanks to all and I hope
to see you in the
