E1: Evaluation of the program

Personal evaluation of the program:

My Program conformed well to my design specification, which is as follows:

My unit converter will need to be able to convert units form the customary system into the metric system and from the metric system into the Customary system. It will require a place to input initial values, a place that outputs the converted value,  the ability to select which units will be converted, and it must also show the formula of how to convert, or what one unit equals in it’s corresponding system. It will need to be simple enough to not confuse the user or clutter the interface with buttons, text boxes, or other design elements, and will have to progress in a logical manner for conversion.

All of the conversions in my program convert between both measurement systems as required  and I successfully was able to create input and output sections for all units, except for the time conversions, which proved to be extremely complicated, and I elected to have a conversion chart in the place of an actual calculator, but only for the time values. all other conversions align with this requirement. the GUI is very simple, without cluttering and unnecessary details, but still gets the job done and guides the user easily through the program  All conversions have some form of formula or explanation as to how to convert manually, but those unfortunately, do not take full attention as I had initially hoped, but they have also not become completely obsolete.

Peer evaluation:

You’re program was very neat to look at and very nice and easy. Only thing is that I think you took the easy route in making this project

(this is true, I did not really want to do anything extremely challenging this unit)
