What I Did, Volume 2

What I Did is a series that documents software development-related work I’ve done the previous week. As the old adage goes, that which is measured gets done, and there’s nothing like broadcasting to the world that you’ve done nothing to motivate the self, right?

  • I’m working on creating an interface that allows users to generate customized letters populated with a specific patient’s plan of care information. I need to return the relevant data from the SQL database, convert the output table to RTF, and populate it into our software’s documents editor. Last week, I converted a legacy SQL-to-RTF script from VBA to VB.NET, so this week, I focused on writing the SQL query that returns the necessary data.
  • I made some progress on Udacity’s How to Use Git and GitHub course. At the beginning of the week, I was just under halfway through lesson 3. At the end of the week, I am just over halfway through said lesson. 😦

Because of the time I spent on my SQL-to-RTF scripts and related queries (oh, and the go-live for a pilot program that I found out about an hour and forty minutes before it occurred) resulted in three days where I worked overtime, I didn’t make as much progress as I had hoped. I didn’t finish the course on version control, I didn’t even touch the intro on HTML/CSS, let alone make it through the whole course, and I haven’t seen Python in about a week and a half.

Here’s hoping this week treats my self-education plans well. The plans:
