Year In Review: Programming
Beginning of the year I embarked on a getting back in touch with my programming skills… and this year has been really successful. Here is what I accomplished, over the weekends and late nights:
· I programmed extensively in first of half on the year on IOS, especially IOS5 and iPad. I still need to work on my design skills but I covered a lot of ground Table Views & Controllers, Storyboards, Network Programming, XML parsing, Notifications, Pull To Refresh etc.).
· I refreshed my programming skills in Java by programming in OSGi Embedded environment…
· And to complete my journey – I signed up for courses with edX and Coursera on Cloud Programming. I would have liked to do a project or two of mine but I had to be satisfied with the assignments and the tests that were done as a part of the course. I ended up learning about R, Ruby and Rails. I had signed up for a few courses but the three that I completed were:
o CS169.1x Software As A Service @ edX
o CS169.2x Software As A Service @ edX
o Computing for Data Analysis @ Coursera [Data Analysis using R]
