Weekly posts it seems to be, at least that's the feeling that I'm getting from the amount of posts on here. Fairly busy week.My Internet & HTML Technology assignment deadline and exam were this week. the exam was incredibly easy, I scored 97% which let's face it isn't bad going really; the assignment as perhaps the trickier task of the two.
The assignment was to create a website based around the streaming technologies that the BBC use on their websites. I had to create the website from scratch using a WYSIWYG, if you know me, or have seen my work, you know that I'm fairly capable at this kind of thing. The hardest thing about this assignment was simply the content; the BBC don't REALLY use that many different streaming technologies, at least not that many up to date ones. They still use Real Video and Windows Media for their news reports, as an example, instead of Flash.
In the end I used a theme that I created for v.4.0 of the Keyone Productions website and customised it to fit my needs. If you want to take a look at the finished site, head on over to www.chrisleydon.com/bbc - I'm quite happy with my work.
I have one more assignment and one more exam left before I finish Uni for the year, the exam is on the 28th of April and the assignment needs to be in by the 2nd of June. My final assignment is for Audio Processing; I have to create an original piece of music and then write a report on the process, pretty much the same thing as last time - apart from this time we're using Reason instead of Cubase.
I've taken this weekend off from working; I know that this isn't a good plan but I feel as though I deserve it. Next week I'll be working on Reason and the technical report. If I have some spare time I might even pop around once again, write a post and give you an update.
