I've been wanting to get into hardware for a while, so I thought for my newest project i'd try to write a BASIC compiler for the PICMicro 16F84 chip, mostly for practice, and the fact that the regular compiler costs ~$150. Now, i've never done any sort of compiler development before, so I have a lot of learning to do, but I thought this sort of project would be sort of cool if I were able to pull it off.
In my barely over 2 hours with C#, i've been able to get a basic text editor pretty much completely implemented. You can load, edit, and save text files. Most of this time has been in looking up syntax and whatnot, but i've been pretty pleased. There's a few things I need to get used to in C#, but I hope to dive deeper into it, it seems very promising.
In other news, I got my final grades for the summer semester, and, to my amazement, I got all A's. I took both introductory Physics classes and a humanities class. I expected to do well in Physics, but humanities is supposed to be nightmarish, and it certainly seemed like it at the time, but somehow I got an A, so that's cool.
