MIS3502 – Fall 2017

Integrated Application Development

MIS3502 – follow up from 9/19

In class on 9/19 we went over the last challenge in detail.  We also talked about how the idea of “services” will play into our class project.

I discussed the notion of a “round trip” and how a web service can be used to avoid making unnecessary round trips.  This is particularly relevant to web applications orient towards mobile devices.

Teams were challenged to identify at least two elements of their envisioned project, on the POG interface, that would use a web service.

MIS3502 – Agenda for class on 9/7/2017

Hello Students!

Here’s the agenda for class on Thursday, 9/7.

  1. We will review the PDO challenge.  As previously communicated, I will call on one or more teams at random to share/discuss their work.  Be prepared for this.
  2. You will take an ungraded quiz on PDO and we will discuss accordingly
  3. I will review the artifacts that I am expecting for the class project, deliverable #1.  Specifically, I will demonstrate how to make:
    1. A Use Case Spreadsheet
    2. Schema Diagram
    3. A folder hierarchy and zip file

So, no formal lecture this Thursday.  But, the things we will be working on are important!  Also, be advised that we will have guests in class this coming Tuesday.  Be sure to have project-related questions ready for them.
