Assignment: Project 2 (8h)
Each week you will complete an assignment that allows you to demonstrate all that you have learned in this course. Each of these assignments has a theme that is customized to tell a story or process that is something of personal interest to you. You will need to complete the lecture and research activities for the week and incorporate their objectives into your assignment.
Level of Effort
This activity should take approximately 480m to complete. It will require:
- 360m Research
- 60m Prep & Delivery
- 60m Work
If you find that this activity takes you significantly less or more time than this estimate, please contact me for guidance.
Reading & Resources
This image is embedded below, and covers everything you need to do for Project 2.
The flowchart for Project 2 may look a little daunting at first, but take a closer look:
It’s not that badâ€”there are a few new things, but most of it is just more of the same from last week. There are a few new flowchart symbols, a few new vocabulary terms, and it’s broken into multiple parts.
This assignment works the same as the first: come up with a story or process and code it to fit the flowchart while incorporating the points from this week’s activities. Below is an example that builds on the Pirate example from last week:
Our new crewmember had only been at sea for days, but he was already rethinking his decision to become a pirate. All he had done so far was swab the , which didn’t feel very Pirate-y. It felt like his days were just the same thing over and over again:
Is it time to ? It looks like I have to go. The First Mate says I have to keep swabbing , so I guess I’d better get to it.
And just like each day was the same, each deck was the same, so that every deck that he was told to do, he just swabbed and swabbed and swabbed. No matter who he , the result was always the same: .
In time, he kept his mind occupied by imagining what would happen in the middle of the night.
Git Repository (I’ll worry about this!)
This assignment and the next two will be tracked using Git, software that you’ll learn how to use in the Revision Controlactivity. Git will help you to keep a log of the changes you make to your assignment files, but it’s not automated magic. You’ll need to have the presence of mind to work in small chunks, save often, and work with Git each step of the way.
This part of the assignment is not on the rubric, because it is required but doesn’t count toward your grade. Please, please, please take the time to read and digest what is required for revision control, because the other two parts of the assignment may be perfect and you could still get a zero.
