Write your blog post and link your video (if you do one), then:

email the text of that review and the link to your post to Ken.

Most important: blog about your answers. Use #CourseReview as the hash tag.

Make a review of the course, what are the topics and tools that you learned and discuss that. The topics are the programming type topics as well as what are Tec21 “transversal” topics like working in teams, communicating (via blogs and working with others). Go over the mastery list to get an idea but be creative here.

You can find other assignments on the same page if you want more Java programming fun but you should at least try to to the Library assignment linked here.

Blog About it

Write about this on your blog using the hash tag #WSQ11

Another Coding Reference

You may want to check out Programming by Doing. This site has more basic Java assignments and a link to his book.

One goal during your degree is to know about key persons and their work in computing. Joel Spolsky is one person you should know about.

Blog Post

Read his blog post on Advice for Computer Science College Students and write you own blog post with reflections about this. Be sure to use the tag #WSQ10 in your post and I recommend promoting it to Twitter with that tag AND the course tag of #TC201

In this assignment we should be into more classes to implement the program. You will want to check out the Java Collections Framework since this looks like the Dictionary you probably used in Python. In this case the key will be a string (the movie title) and the value with be a list (or set perhaps) of strings (actor names).

What to Do

The details of the assignment can be found at the following URL, I should pull some of that description over here (note that the material on the authors’ page is indeed Creative Commons license CC-BY 3.0 as is mine) . *NOTE* that these assignments are based on Python2 syntax in case you want to run this in Python. Of course your solution will be with Java using object-oriented programming.

As usual, create a blog post explaining what you did, where you found resources (books, videos, web pages, friends) to help you solve this. Remember to put the tag #WSQ09 on your post so our blog hub picks that up.

You should include your code as a link to GitHub.

And of course, leave any questions here as well as asking those questions on Twitter with the hashtag #TC201 so we all see your question posted there.

Lychrel numbers are natural numbers that do not form a palindrome after successive additions to their inverse. See details on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lychrel_number

What to Do

Your jobs is to create a program that asks the user for two pieces of data:

The lower bound of the sequence

The upper bound of the sequence

Then you check the values from the lower bound (inclusive) to the upper bound (inclusive) and make a report of them. During the analysis of each number, if a Lychrel number is found it should be reported immediately with something like “Found a Lychrel number: 196”

Again, think OBJECT-oriented programming in Java!

Details

The report must show:

The range of numbers analysed (lower to upper bound)

The number of natural palindromes (no addition to inverse needed)

The number of non-Lycherels encountered (become palindromes)

The number of Lycherel number candidates (that did not converge to palindrome)

Since you will not be able to prove that a number is Lycherel (since you cannot computer forever to check), our definition for a Lycherel candidate will be if a number does not converge after 30 iterations of applying the addition to the inverse.

What to Submit

As usual, create a blog post explaining what you did, where you found resources (books, videos, web pages, friends) to help you solve this. Remember to put the tag #WSQ08 on your post so our blog hub picks that up.

You should include your code as a link to GitHub. You really should start using your GitHub repository now. If you need help on that, just ask Ken or your classmates.

And of course, leave any questions here as well as asking those questions on Twitter with the hashtag #TC201 so we all see your question posted there.

In this assignment you will write a program to calculate the square root of a number using the Babylonian method. You can search for that method, it will be easy to find.

What to Do

Again, this is Java and object-oriented programming. Don’t lean on your imperative roots but think objects and messages here.

What to Submit

As usual, create a blog post explaining what you did, where you found resources (books, videos, web pages, friends) to help you solve this. Remember to put the tag #WSQ07 on your post so our blog hub picks that up.

You should include your code as a link to GitHub.

And of course, leave any questions here as well as asking those questions on Twitter with the hashtag #TC201 so we all see your question posted there.

Okay, a simple one to start and many of you already did this in Python. The trick here should be to implement this with message calls, not a simple iterative solution. You should be asking the number, “hey, what is the greatest common divisor you have in common with this one I am passing you as a parameter?”

Background

In this assignment you will write a program to calculate the greatest common denominator of two positive integers using Euclid’s algorithm.

What to Do

Okay, a simple one to start and many of you already did this in Python, now to do this in Java with objects. The trick here should be to implement this with message calls, not a simple iterative solution. You should be asking the number, “hey, what is the greatest common divisor you have in common with this one I am passing you as a parameter?”

What to Submit

As usual, create a blog post explaining what you did, where you found resources (books, videos, web pages, friends) to help you solve this. Remember to put the tag #WSQ06 on your post so our blog hub picks that up.

You should include your code as a link to GitHub.

And of course, leave any questions here as well as asking those questions on Twitter with the hashtag #TC201 so we all see your question posted there.

This course is designated as a project course. I would like you to choose a coding project that involves teamwork and object-oriented something. The choice is yours but you need to get Ken’s approval on the project
