This week I spent thinking about my final project idea and reading the assignments. The two ideas that I have been juggling are projects that I have been sitting on for a bit. One is a non profit college scholarship program and the other is a private label beverage site. The college scholarship would be a simple 5-6 page site with a form that allows students to apply for scholoarships online and the other would be a template design for a e-commerce site that allowed you to create your own beverage using ajax functionality. I want to do both of these sites very soon but I have to pick one so I decided to do the non-profit because it was easier and straight forward. The private label drink site will take more time because of the business aspects that must be considered.

I am looking forward to working with Aptana studio. This looks to be a robust framework and should work nicely. I am already considering purchasing it.


I am looking to improve my development skills(html, css, xml, javascript, ajax) and coming up with new ideas for sites and creating them quickly and efficiently.

I am interested in learning about how to create dynamically driven news sites and e-commerce sites. I am a fan of digg and I think there are many opportunities still available for new ways to syndicate information on the internet. I am also into affiliate marketing and looking to build a portfolio of sites.

I am in this class to learn as much as possible and soak up as much information as I can. I’m looking forward to meeting others in the class and discussing our work together.
