The course ‘Apps’ for work from July to September was very interesting and enjoyable, learning about the ‘cloud’, using thee flash-drive rather than the laptop was interesting as it showed extra security, I liked importing images `and inserting them into documents,using spreadsheets, manipulating data, also adding and editing charts was interesting. The drag and drop method was quite enjoyable and efficient way to move documents around.
Today I made a spreadsheet of the corporate volunteers by month over the last four years . I totaled the amount using a simple formula and edited it before creating a bar chart to go along side the data for extra clarity.
NB – An active document in the cloud may be edited. It is not a saved file. Changes would appear here immediately. Active documents do not always display well on small-screen devices such as phones or tablets.
Today we created a google sheets document and column chart of data recording the percentages of JSA claimants of London boroughs in 2014. We entered formulae to change number totals to percentages and set the data out in A-Z form to make it easier to understand. We also edited text size, font size and text angles on the axis.
We also published a blog post of ‘the Parrot’ image.
This is Evren Grays’ parrot flown in from the tropics to help the interns at the Bold organisation.
Good morning today has been a challenging yet exciting days work, including a review of last weeks’ video work which we uploaded to the vimeo account, revising the ‘Cloud’ looking at a ‘small businesses strategy’, a walkthrough of making a simple blog post, a walkthrough creating an A5 and Google Doc with the team.

This variety of peppers were taken at the employability club in Hackney. This was my first photograph of a variety of peppers as part of the Apps for work course. It was good practice but needed more refinement such as positioning the camera to capture the peppers more closely and less of the table. I hope to improve by the end of the course.
