The work goes on with the designing of the web application’s interface, which turned out to be a bit more challenging than i expected. I eventually had to review and re-review basic web design principles to come up with the most intuitive and user-friendly interface there could possibly be. I feel like i’m crawling through progress, but Sir Alvin has already approved the main page’s layout, and tomorrow i hope to finish at least all the necessary html files, for a possible initial demo on Friday. This afternoon we also discussed AJAX, which we would possibly be using for our ASP.NET web app.

We were also able to play around with the barcode reader today, which will be essential for our project’s success, as our project involves the implementation of barcodes for more efficient record-keeping.

RECAP from yesterday:

Yesterday we were evicted from our workstations, to be finally relocated to a more appropriate place — the RND office. XD The airconditioning unit there was broken when we started, so they found us a place somewhere else so we wouldn’t have to endure the sauna-like atmosphere in the room. =P Yesterday though, much to the convenience of our project supervisors (and ours as well) who no longer have to walk up and down the stairs whenever we needed to have discussions, we have finally found our places in the department.

Here’s a photo of my workstation:
