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.
