the goal of real world software developments is for developers to analyze design pro 4953691
The goal of real-world software developments is for developers to analyze, design, program, and test complete applications that solve the needs of the customer. The Lab exercises you have been given will give you practice with the specific programming techniques you need to complete the course project, but these are small, self-contained, academic programs. Just completing the Labs will not lead you on a path to becoming a software developer. The objective of the Course Project is to give you practice applying the programming techniques to a complete development project. The actual programming problem is not too difficult, but in order to be successful with the Course Project you will need to be able to apply the programming techniques and accomplish the analysis and design of the problem as well. This implies that you need to understand the weekly concepts as well as the programming techniques so you can apply both to the software development project. The course project is divided into five increments and you will complete one new increment each week. Each new increment builds upon the previous weeks, which means that each week you need to be successful in completing the weekly increment requirements; otherwise, you will not be able to add new increments in subsequent weeks. If you cannot get an increment working, then make sure you contact your professor for help. There are three things that you need to do to be successful in the course project: • Don’t skip analysis and design and go straight to coding; otherwise you will get into a “build and fix” mode of programming which will always, always lengthen the time it takes you to complete the program. • Complete the weekly Lab exercises before you start the course project coding. You can do the project analysis and design before you start coding, but the Lab exercises will give you practice in the programming techniques you need to complete the project. • Start analysis and design early; don’t wait until the end of the week to figure out what you are supposed to be doing. If you start analysis and design at the beginning of the week, then you will have time to ask questions and get your questions answered early. Deliverables Starting in Week 4, you will create the IPO chart for the program, then you will continue to update the IPO chart each week. The project file .py will also be updated from week to week, so there will be no need to start from scratch each week. Each week you will submit the following: 1. Current IPO chart 2. python code file 3. Completed Test Plan with three screenshots showing three successful tests Programming Standards Each increment of the program will adhere to the following standards: 1. Each source file will have a comment header describing the program, programmers names, date, purpose of the program, and increment. 2. Each source file will adhere to the coding standards provided in the lecture, or given by the Professor. 3. Each program will have an introductory output message introducing the program to the user and providing directions. 4. All program output will be well structured, easy to read, and appropriately formatted. Test Plan Your test plan should test for a variety of cases. In your test plan list the values you tested along with a screenshot for each. You should test both incorrect and correct inputs. Include 3 screenshots of test cases. Problem Description You will be creating a Guess the number program. In this game, you will give the user a choice with a menu. The user can choose to guess a number, type a number and see how fast the computer can guess it, and exit the game. Initially the program will just have the user guess the number and each week more functionality will be added to the program.
