A New Computer Application!

picture by Braden Jensen

Braden Jensen and Braeden Watson, in ALC’s Computer Programming classes, designed and programmed a client server application for MMHS’s dramatic presentation of “The Pirates of Penzance”. The application allowed the Sound Director and Soundboard Operator in the MMHS Tech Center (the Loft) to communicate with the Microphone Technician backstage, Braden Jensen. Breadon Watson programmed the Client Server; then Braden Jensen created everything else in the application. A local network the students created and existing local IP addresses allowed the computers to communicate with each other.
