  1. In Topic: Colleges these days.... >.<

    Posted 30 Aug 2014

    In CS, the learning is predominantly project-based. There is a good reason projects account for more than 60% of the grade in many classes and are often used in lieu of a final exam. By the time one gets to junior and senior level programming courses, I would hope one would be able to learn the framework well enough to do said projects. I would also expect the instructor to talk about things like best practices, maybe a bit about framework coverage, general concepts, and maybe some code examples. I wouldn't expect it to be a hand-holding experience.

    In a GUI class in particular, I would expect the instructor to talk a lot about good design principles to make it easier on the user.
  2. In Topic: Starting with kinect programming

    I'm hoping you can Google as well as we can:

    Expected = Exception in thread "main" java.util.IllegalFormatConversionException: d != java.lang.Double

    The %d formatter is a decimal (base-10) integer. The %f formatter is for floating-point numbers (double, float).

  4. In Topic: What are your thoughts on this undergrad video game project?

    Posted 30 Aug 2014

    Quote

    Just for my own curiosity though, would you consider that game to be impressive for a student of undergrad?

    I'm not familiar with Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) technologies. I do very little in the way of GUI development anymore, let alone game programming; and I am unfamiliar with how much of that is provided by the Unity engine. I would encourage you to take some HCI/GUI classes at college and go from there.

    I definitely plan to have mine look better than that, I would most likely create a first person shooter.

    I would suggest learning programming before critiquing someone's work and saying you can do better.

    macosxnerd101, I know you don't like being messaged for help, but in this case could I send you the test class code and the errors and put the errors I'm getting as a reply? Here's the altered section.

    No. I don't want to be messaged regarding programming help. Please post everything here if you want us to help.

    EDIT: Is there any particular reason why you changed the type to int?

    I was making some code up on the fly to illustrate an example and didn't really compare to your code. If you are concerned about double vs. int, check with your professor.

    We looked at polyhedra and vertex configurations in graph theory towards the end. Neat stuff! Thanks for sharing!
