myBCcampus upgrades PASBC
myBCcampus: Changes to PASBC
I went to PASBC tonight, as I do from time to time, just to see if the application I was responsible for building in 1999 was still online. It's not. It's been replaced with a new version.
I'm proud that the application we built lasted from December 15th, 1999, until July 26, 2006, over 6 and a half years. While it's sad to see our application has been retired, but it's good that PASBC is still available to students, because it's a great time-saver for students and the post-secondary education system in BC.
According to a BCcampus report:
Over 130,000 students in 2004 alone! I'm very proud to have been a part of something that was used by so many students. I wonder how many used the now-retired application over its lifespan...
Love live PASBC!
Footnote: For what it's worth, the retired application was written in Objective-C, was deployed on WebObjects 4.0.1 with Netscape Enterprise Server on Windows NT and used an Oracle database for storage.
