This week we made some terrific progress. On Friday Kevin, Joseph, and I got together to talk about the nitty-gritty implementation details; now I feel like we're really able to start bringing our DB and Java application together using J2DB and APIs, etc. On Sunday and Monday we hashed out first a rough draft and then, after my meeting with our advisor Jhonatan, a second and final presentation. Everyone came together on Tuesday and gave (what I believe was) a fantastic presentation. To top it all off, Joseph got tickets to San Paulo on Tuesday, and so he's probably on his way there now. I can't wait to hear all about it when he gets back. Until then, I'll be working on my Java app and calling Kevin; hopefully together we can get his database and my Java application to talk to each other!
