Meet Justin Kendrick:
I am 13 years old, going into high school. I've been fascinated by computers for as long as I can remember. My cousin, who has masters' degrees in computer science and electrical engineering first introduced me to computer programming when I was about 8 years old, showing me a 'dancing chart' in Excel. (A chart referring to cells with random values constantly being written by a macro) Not long after I went online and found out about QBASIC. Since then, I have become, (I think) highly proficient at QBASIC and QuickBASIC 7.1. In addition, I have worked with Visual Basic 6.0, VB.NET 2005, a tiny bit of ASM, PHP, XML, and a few others which I never really bothered to learn to a useable state. Also, I have an interest in hardware, and am currently designing a computer based around a 6800 (Probably; I only seriously started about 3 or 4 days ago and am still working on the graphics card).
The Wheel of Jeopardy was made as my 8th grade Language Arts final. There was a script, so, in hindsight, it would have been easier to simply make a static presentation, but I had a lot of fun making the Wheel of Jeopardy. As an interesting note, I did most of the project away from the internet, and, at the time, I had never thought about looking on the internet for other examples of dynamic PowerPoint on which to base my project, so the only reference/guide I had was the PowerPoint help file. The macro recorder was invaluable for quickly determining how to manipulate objects.
