Oh well not much else going on. Hope tomorrow can work more on them.
If in the end this isn’t the right choice, well I will just redo it as a brand new revision, the experience itself will be the main reason I’m doing it. At some point if I could make money off of it, it would be wonderful, but oh well I am not in it for the money. Well tonight once I’m beginning to relax more I will focus on doing a few more FreeCodeCamp lessons. I’m semi delaying some of them, but I know I shouldn’t. I need to get over the hump of being afraid of what others think and take their opinions and work toward a better project.
I keep having people ask me why I’d do my project in Node. Thankfully I tell them it hasn’t officially been done in node or anything for that matter. I’ve been doing some testing with NodeJS and Python, and it’s really hard to pick one of these. I don’t know how well a non-blocking language will do for an ERP/core system like I want to create. I feel that it may actually make my life harder by not blocking what people are doing. I’ve also been told that MySQL/MariaSQL will be good choices instead of MongoDB. I’d like to do something that is a little bit of both databases, but don’t know how well that will do.

So now that school is officially done, at least for the next month, it will be some programming time. I’ve been trying to learn passport and also debating if MongoDB or MySQL will work the best for this project. I’d like to be able to have something that either is able to be used, but that’s a little bit beyond my initial knowledge. It is more like one of those, nice to have features, but not needed to be there initially. I’d write some more tonight, but it’s been a long busy weekend with Easter that I need some rest for work. Hopefully find out this week what my work wants to do for our next project.
One last thought, one of the streamers I watch has an CRM system, but it does so much more, all in Free Pascal. He recently got hacked and had some huge issues with tons of data being deleted, not because of his system, but because they got into his MySQL. So a big portion of what I’d like to focus on is being as secure as possible, I’ve always wanted to work on security for programming, but that is another long term goal.
So I have officially finished my final for my technical writing class, and only thing left for all my classes, is one exam. I have taken the night to work on what I feel will be an okay login screen. With no bootstrap, was using a template out there but I got rid of some of the junk I didn’t want to use, like an animated login. I also did a little changes on the logo, don’t know exactly what think of it yet.
Next step will be starting to work on a sample layout of a dashboard. Just excited to maybe get some more time to work on this. After working 8 hours on my final project today, my mind is a bit shot. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
Work has been super busy and looks like I will be one of the main people working on what will be the next update to our testing suite, biggest problem some of us are seeing right now, we need an architect for the project. Makes me think of learning the steps to architect the project I’m working on. Yes I do know some I have already got started, with using mind mapping, but need to really get some more notes down of what I want to do.
Read a very interesting article about a programmer that is stopping TDD just because it seems to be a box to force you to not really allow you to program to the fullest. Yes tests are good but in moderation. Well back to homework, at least after getting some sleep.
