What the project does
This project takes in csv files that contain the data for Covid cases and deaths in certain counties on certain dates. Both sets of data can then be exported into one csv file that will automatically calculate the mortality rate for the county on the certain date.
My parents wanted to find a way to see the mortality rate over time for certain counties in Washington. They wanted to know which counties were doing a good job at handling Covid and which counties weren't.
Building the Project
My dad told me NetBeans was a good app to build a Java app. It also happened to already be installed on my computer. There was a lot of building and debugging involved. It took a while to fix some of the problems in my code. I learned a lot about how to add items to the app in the design interface of NetBeans.
