2003-09-16Jarkko Leponiemi8 You are required to… Implement at least 40% of the weekly exercise assignments –computed from points –25%, if going for 2-5 cu (Tampere, Oulu?) Implement the programming project –write an UI design document –implement a prototype –implement a full version (different target environment from the prototype) No exam!
2003-09-16Jarkko Leponiemi9 Programming project Organization chart editor UI design document –a complete description of the UI –pictures of the UI Prototype implementation –see project description for the requirements Full version implementation –complete application –see project description
