Things to Consider
• You will only have about 10 days to
develop the application
• You should also allocate time for
documentation and the development of
testing code for your app
• The final project is due right before the
final exam
First Things First
• As part of Homework #3 you must submit
a document that includes the following:
– a one-paragraph "high-level" description of
what your program will do
– a listing and description of the classes you
expect to build, their member variables, and
their methods
• The teaching staff will give you prompt
feedback so that you have time to finish it
