How To Complete Your First Milestone


Introduction
So you've been going to class and watching the professor do all of these cool things with Squeak (quite easily, I might add), and now the time has come for you to do a little Squeak-ing of your own. You've taken a few programming courses and know from experience that the first programming assignment isn't usually that difficult. Whereas I hope that you find this to be true for your first experiences with Squeak, it will not likely be the case. In order to make the transition into Squeak a little easier for you, I've compiled a few general and specific guidelines for Squeak and CS2340 that would've made my life a little easier (or my nights a little shorter) when completing Milestone 1.

General Advice
The following are a few general guidelines for Squeak and CS2340 that should help you out (especially if you're viewing this early on):

A Few Basic Tools/Tasks In Squeak

On a somewhat unrelated side note, pay attention to how your grades for the class are weighted. If your midterm and final exams contribute toward 55% of your final grade, it would probably be a good idea to put a little effort into studying for them. This can be extended to apply toward all of your classes... ever.

Hopefully, the things I've mentioned in this case have taught you a few things about Squeak and CS2340 that will help you get off to a good start. Good luck!

This case was authored by Jeff Watson (gtg273h) for CS2340 in Fall 2005.
