My first computer program

Rate this Entry
Pretty proud of this one. I've been working more diligently then I ever have before.

And the rewards are shining through.

While the rest of the class is learning how to input their dog names as variables and have the computer spit it back oit to them, i wrote my very first computer program.

It takes live spot prices of silver straight from the internet and compares it to a pre-determined buying price that I have in mind and then if it's above my buying price tells me that the price is too high, but if it falls below my buying price it gives me a notification that the spot price has fallen to within my buying range. So nowinstead of checking the spot price of commodities 24 times a day, I will just get a message saying "It's time!"

I call it... "Commodity Clock". Coming to an app store near you!

    Very nice. I have recently decided to go down the programming path. Html,css,javascript,ruby and rails first for me. As an interactive web page for a small businesses is all I desire currently.
    I start in 3 days. Will be practicing 6 hours a day.
    As for a trading program. I like deviated averages. However there is not a program that will ping me when the price deviates my desired amount.
    I could also use a program that automatically buys and sells based on deviated average movement.
    But! That will be future fun.
    Good luck!

    It's a big learning curve to go from scratch and build interactive e-commerce websites, but certainly well worth the investment of time, as I.T. jobs seem to become more and more common with pretty lucrative salaries.
