Project Title: What is my Computer Really Doing?
BASIS Advisor: Raul Rivera Pun
Internship Location: Unanet
Onsite Mentor: Steve Bittner
The working world is getting more efficient every day — tasks are completed faster than ever before. We have gotten this far by allowing computers to do the busy work and leaving the creative and critical thinking to humans. This busywork includes processing paperwork, filling in spreadsheets, and much more. While these computers often do not always complete whole jobs by themselves, the programs attempt to make the jobs of working people quicker. My Senior Project is to create a user interface that illustrates the workflow between multiple tasks, showing all error messages and presenting quick hyperlinks to the error origins, such as log files or other prompts. I will be completing this project for Unanet, a mid-size software company, and the final product will hopefully be sent to one of its clients along with a separate deliverable. To complete this project, I will first delve into various downloadable workflow packages that can be a base for the product as a whole. Then, I will continue by adding onto this base, stacking on each ability that I would like it to have. Finally, I will develop the user interface for the product, making the outward face of the deliverable. My research will streamline the productivity of Unanet and its clients, as well as anyone else that would want to use it.
Welcome back, While the name of the blog post is half a dramatic title to lure you into reading my content, it’s half true. All last week, and at the beginning of this week, I was having trouble getting Luigid (Luigi’s central scheduler and GUI) to load. Unlike other problems that I’ve experienced, this one […]
Hello all, welcome back! I’m sure each one of you has heard your fair share about COVID-19, so I will keep this part brief. There are clearly wildly different effects for everyone because of the lost ability to go onsite. In my situation, no Unanet employees can commute to the office, so I have been […]
Welcome back, everyone! I have just finished my first week at Unanet. Starting on my first day, my onsite advisor gave me an assignment that replicates my final product at a much simpler level. This base-level deliverable would: (1) Run a batch file that creates a text file within the same folder, (2) run another […]
Hello all, My name is Thomas, but most people call me Tommy! As my abstract says, I am getting ready to start as an intern at Unanet and learn more about software development. I anticipate an exciting learning and application process. After hitting the books about topics like workflow, XML, and user-interface development, I will […]
