CS 373: Week 13

What did you do this past week?

The last phase of the IDB project is done, and I can hardly believe that there are no more projects for the class. I did not do too much for this phase, but the Planning Poker was interesting. It seemed like it would have been useful during the first two phases, too.

What’s in your way?

As far as this class is concerned, there is really the presentation that needs to be done by the end of the week. It would be nice if the last phase of the assignment got graded and we receive feedback for it before the presentation is due so that we can mention any shortcoming.

What will you do next week?

My team will be the first to present next Friday, so we will have to prepare the slides. There is a lot to mention, but it is also intimidating to be the first ones to go since the expectations have not been set yet. Then there is the next exam to study for, and I feel like there has been a lot of content covered between exams.

What’s my experience of the class?

I feel like the rubric for the last phase is a bit misleading since it does include the requirement for the visualization, for example.

What’s my pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?

A little bit too late for the assignment, but I found a useful site that lets you generate a script to create a nice and clean pie chart for D3.js. You can edit everything from the title and labels of the chart to the size, colors, and data. It makes a pretty nice graph!
