Happy new year,
So I had to nurse the new years hangover and get to grips with the first TMA of M257 due in on the 8th of January. Fortunately it went quite well, 94% is a reasonable enough start to a course as any.
The course seems to be flying by, I'm almost half way through according to the course plan and it seems like it only began yesterday. Fortunately the pace of the materials hasn't been too heavy to date, although we have moved on to more interesting Java like the swing library, and with M256 due to kick off next week I'm sure the study hours will pile back on.
I am looking forward to M256, we'll get to properly study development life cycles and design classes on paper first and then convert those designs into working software. Learning UML and making the most of the Java IDE's. I'm enjoying the progression of the B29 degree and finding the material is covering everything in enough detail yet travelling at enough pace to keep me engaged. Hopefully it continues!
That's it for now, I have a date with the Windows 7 Beta and my better half has the Jamie Oliver cookbook out, so I wish everyone all the best for 2009.
