|Hints to make sure your Squeak experience is enjoyable||by Erik Derenne|
| Make sure you play around with the Squeak language and the Squeak environment early in the semester. This will save time for project completion when time is at a premium.|
Meet with your group early and often. Failure to do this could result in long nights at the CoC with incomplete results.
Remember ‘ABS’ – Always Be Saving. The last thing you want after hours of good, hard coding is for your computer to crash and to have all of your code disappear.
At least one group member must have access to a car. This way, the group can recharge at the Waffle House during the wee hours of the morning.
Once you have a good design plan, stick with it. Also, don’t be afraid to get to know your TA and ask for help often. TA’s really are a good resource.
Don’t get behind in your milestones!! The milestones build upon each other to make one huge project. Getting behind in a milestone means double the work for the next one.
Finally, utilize code available on the web. Why waste time writing code for a method that has already been written? Use that extra time to improve the usability of the program.
