On Tuesday November 6, we're going to hold a Design Roundtable (Fall 2001 Class Schedule). This is the first time that we've ever done this, but it's also the first time that we've graded an assignment (P6) for open-ended design improvements. The idea of the Design Roundtable is to help everyone improve on their P6 designs.
If your group has a great idea for how they're going to re-do the design from P2->P5 in P6, SHARE IT!. Here's what I'd like you to do:
Put together a ten minute Powerpoint presentation and link it on to this page (below). Your goal is show off your design and convince everyone that it's better than the P2->P5 API.
If more than five get posted, I'll pick five that I think show a diverse set of perspectives and high quality presentations.
On Nov. 6, you five groups present your design arguments and we all get to argue about, er, discuss them.
There is extra credit available here!. If your group presents a design and you share your Powerpoint on the Cases page, I guarantee everyone in the group 1 point extra credit – that's 1 point added to the bottom line (1% of the entire class grade). Your group is still eligible to do a more extensive writeup of all your assignments towards the total possible extra credit of 5 points.
You can beat out the P2->P5 design? Prove it! Post it here!
No one has any good P6 ideas? Mark Guzdial
Hi Prof...lonely in here ain't it? I want to put up a Class Diagram demonstrating the proper structure of a world, but I am too busy on P5 right now. That is what I disliked the most about the design. There were probably other ways to handle events in the world and actions of characters, but i think verbMatch: do: and when: do: worked find for what this program was intented to do.
Be sure to read the directions above: I don't want just a class diagram. I want a Powerpoint show making the argument. PLEASE DO POST! Mark Guzdial
yeah...well maybe i will get something together this weekend. When would these powerpoint presentations be given? in class? in front of people? or would they just be turned in as files?
