CATA Tracker for Windows Phone 8

CATA Tracker Logo

My first Windows Phone 8 app, CATA Tracker, has officially been published and is available for download.  This app provides real-time bus tracking for the CATA bus service in the State College area.

The initial release contains basic bus location tracking only.  I have plans to add more features in the near future.  If you have any feedback or suggestions, feel free to leave them as a comment.

New Site Design has been due for a redesign for a long time, and now it’s finally happened!  The new site is inspired by Microsoft’s Modern UI design, specifically the Windows 8 Start Screen and Windows Phone 8.  In fact, my motivation to redesign the site was a result of publishing a Windows Phone 8 app (look for another post on that soon).  I feel the site is now cleaner but still represents who I am.  Fun fact:  I used Microsoft PowerPoint to help me visualize the design before coding it, which is a process that I highly recommend.

With the more professional design also comes more professional content.  I’m choosing to retain my older posts (despite the fact that some are embarrassing at this point), but you can expect my future posts to be focused more on my career and academics.  I hope it will become a true tech blog containing programming tips and tutorials from my real-life experience.

I would love to hear what you think of the new design.  Feel free to leave a comment on this post or email me with your feedback.
