CoWeb Assignment 1
Useful Cases & Tutorials:
- The Squeak Wonderland Tutorial
- This tutorial shows the paradox of how powerful and yet simple squeak can be by creating sample objects in 3d space. I was very impressed when I read about Croquet Squeak and saw it in action, however this tutorial shows how simple it really is.
- Team nil
- Team nil makes a good job describing the aspects, requirements and the transition from java. Their descriptions are understandable and they show the mindset that it took to make some of the decisions. They include plenty of screenshots and a very detailed UML model.
- Mini Java-to-Squeak Tutorial
- The Java to Squeak makes a relatively useful mini course that everyone familiar to the java syntax can understand. The team makes a good job at starting from the simple assignment operators, to some of the most reused code blocks and even integer parsing. This can be very helpful since it can significantly lower the 'pain' aspect of learning a completely different environment.
- Video Professor: Because reading is HARD.
- My apologies for including this one as it's one of the examples, but its nonetheless very powerful and useful. I could go on and on and describe what the various videos taught me, but that would be a waste of both of our times. Instead I will venture and say something about the way most people learn... ie through either a) reading b) viewing c) doing . And they rank exponentially higher if listed by 'what is the best way to learn'. Thus the best case would be a sort of you-do-it-with-me kind of video professor but viewing is the next best option.
