I wrote a little Silverlight application that replaced a paper based system.
It offers all the standard benefits of a computer based system.
It really is nothing special.
The manager for whom I wrote the system is absolutely thrilled.
She has said to several other managers that it's done things for them above and beyond what they thought was possible - this coming from someone who was a bit skeptical at first. She's all happy now and anxious to get to work to replace other paper based systems.
The nice thing about where I work is that all the current systems are so terrible that anything I do looks like magic. It's all paper based - and where technology touches it the whole thing is mainframe/Access/Excel cobbled together in the most inefficient ways. It's like being the first person to discover gold in a stream - it's all low hanging fruit with no competition.
It's nice to occasionally pull off a win.
Looks like I'll be busy for years to come.
