Class 9

This week Bob Patton will drop in to talk about ITc Portfolios and other things.

We will have our exam prep session.

I think I have some interesting stuff this week. Please bring your questions to class.

Files that we will need for class 9 [LINK]
Remember: The Stritch server, where my files are kept, will not let you download a .java file so I have added .txt to each one. When you see the .java.txt file that you want, just right click and save as without the .txt.

I know that I keep promising but tonight we will look at [ALICE] and possibley [SCRATCH] -- essentially programming language simulators or object oriented worlds. Interesting stuff. Worth the time spent downloading and looking at. They are available in leading platforms.
