West’s Visual Basic Students Create Programs

West Visual Basic student groups recently created computer programs that reflected their own style ideas and philosophies. Gairren Boisel, Austin Hagendorn, and Alex Huettman created a D&D character generator; the design is fairly simplistic, but the math and complexity of the code is not, requiring countless hours over several weeks and 2400+ lines of code. Owen Robb, Travis White, and Joshua  Fisher created a maze game with five different levels and background music. The final level was extremely difficult, and it included extreme music to go with it. Clarissa Beyer and Hannah Swigart created a quiz game with several challenging levels. Robert Beckley took what he learned in iJAG and applied it directly to Visual Basic with “The Interview,” a simple 10-question program that helps viewers figure out what to wear to an interview.
