- MP2 and MP3 were graded. Results are in subversion.
- MP3 will be graded again on: ____________
- Check out the "PairProgramming" project from Subversion into Eclipse and see the instructions in the readme file.
- Form pairs of 2 people in the same lab section. Work together on the game using one keyboard.
- This is a required course component and bumps your quiz scores by 15%.
- Next week's lab will include a code review of your work.
Please open up Turing's Craft and show your lab assistant how you're doing. Talk to your Lab Assistants and ask for help and talk about computer science! Please ask your lab assistants for help on the MPs, programming, using Eclipse and their experience in later CS courses.
Why Pair Programming?
- MPs are about achieving very precise and specific programming skills and programming requirements.
- Open projects are closer to real software engineering. You get to set your own goals, be prepared to play and learn based on what you need to do and work effectively with others to create something of value.
- Learn and practice pair programming which involves real skills used in industry (part of "Agile Development Methods")
Pair Programming Projects FAQ
- Yes, you need to be a team member; it's a required part of the course.
- No, you cannot work alone; being a computer scientist means working with others.
- Yes, it's graded (more details next week).
- This project is different from the MPs. The MPs define specific programming objectives. Being a computer scientist means being able to create things and work with others. This is the main purpose of the pair programming project.
Next Week: Pair-Programming Projects Show-And-Tell #1
- We will ask you to:
- present your team of two or three
- show your improved game
- present the code changes you made
Completion of the Show-And-Tell will add 15 percentage points to your quiz scores. (e.g. Suppose the sum of your quiz scores to date is 270% out of 300%, you could potentially be bumped up to 285%/300%). The theoretical limit on quiz scores is now 315% out of 300%. Cool, huh?!
