My name is Noah Drake. Currently, I’m senior at the College of Charleston pursuing degrees in computer science and history and seeking a career in software engineering. This blog documents what I learn as I explore different programming languages, computer science concepts, and side projects. I also document my work on Squid 3, a geochronological data processing software developed by CIRDLES. The program is run by Dr. Jim Bowring, Associate Professor of Computer Science at the College of Charleston.
A bit more about me…
- I am currently 22 years old, born in Cincinnati, Ohio.
- I want to make technology work for people, not against them. Making money can be good, but not at all costs…
- Squid 3 is used by geologists to analyze and perform calculations on results retrieved from the SHRIMP mass spectrometer. I currently work with features relating to the XML documents used for sharing these calculations.
- The projects I currently maintain on my own can be seen via the link below and on GitHub.
- In my spare time, I love to play video games. I also compete on behalf of the CofC Esports Club against other college teams for scholarship money.
Stuff I’m up to
Hello all, I am happy to begin our capstone this semester! I don’t have any plans in particular for what I would like to work on or what team I will be working with. I do know that I would like to work with a programming language I already have experience with, such as JavaContinue reading “CSCI 462: Introduction”
24.6: Explain why program inspections are an effective technique for discovering errors in a program. What types of error are unlikely to be discovered through inspections? Inspections are effective because they ensure the code is meeting the software specification. A big part of why inspection can be so effective is because it is a collaborativeContinue reading “CSCI 362 HW21: Chapter 24”
Since my last blog post, we have completed the reports section of the project and have added drivers to run more test cases. Below, I have a screenshot of the report HTML document: As you can see, there are expected results and computed results which should match with each other if the test case passed.Continue reading “CSCI 362 HW20: Team Progress II”
