Due date: 4/13 : NOONM
Objective: (1) to inspect the results of the test fest and (2) to
evaluate your choice of programming language
Task 1: Inspect the results of the test fest, and
describe the results of your test harness with respect to my test suite
in a one-page memo.
Your memo should consist of an enumeration of 15 items. Each item
corresponds to one of the test cases. For each test case that your test
harnesses passes, simply write "N/A". For each failure of your text
harness, explicitly acknowledge the mistake or argue with references to
my design document why my test case is flawed.
Please tabulate the number of lines of code, lines of
unit tests, the total number of lines, and the ratio of lines of test out
of total lines. See Blog for my own count.
Task 2: Write a memo that evaluates your choice of
programming language. Your memo should not exceed one page and should
address two distinct points:
It should describe three serious flaws in your programming language with
respect to any of the "software stories" of projects 2 through 12. If you
think that your chosen language is perfect with respect to all tasks,
argue why you think so.
It should reflect on the specification of the original language-choice
memos. Specifically, argue whether or not the original questions
accurately predicted the demands on the language.
Deliverables: Staple your two memos (pages) together
and submit them my office by the due date/time. If I am not in my office,
slip your print-out under my door.
