~ Try a mini project yourself: Solutions in the 'subscription only' drive.


A mini project for you to try

Create a simple web browser. It should load up a URL, and also allow you to go back and forward. See if you can add any other exciting features such as tabs

*SOLUTIONS AND FULL TUTORIAL are in the "Teachers Only" or Subscription only drive (see link below this section)

Follow the systems cycle

Analysis

Analyse the problem. What do you need to do? List your objectives and be specific. Do all the necessary research - perhaps consider similar systems.

Design

Produce flow charts, and pseudocode. This will give you a clear idea of how to proceed in development and coding. You can also produce a test plan in this section. (some put it in Analysis)

Development

Get coding! 

Testing

Test your solution. Use different types of data including normal, boundary, extreme and invalid.

Evaluation

Evaluate your final solution and reflect on the good and not so good things! What could you have improved?

 

A mini project for you to try

See if you can create a simple animation in VB.Net. For example, take a square and make it bounce, or start by just making it move across the screen!

A mini project for you to try

Ever played hangman? A little morbid, if you really think about it but never mind! See if you can create hangman in VB.Net - a great practice challenge. Prepare to be stretched
