Read Chapter 1 and Chapter 7 of
The Pragmatic Programmer and write about:
Use no more than 1 page of plain ASCII text (do not use DOC, RTF, PS, PDF or other binary formats).
Do not attach it - copy-and-paste it directly in your mailing program - it should be easy, not
hard, for people to view what you have written.
- What ONE thing will you do during the next week that you would not have done if you had not read this
part of "The Pragmatic Programmer"? Why?
- Reflect upon ONE specific thing that you did last week. How well did it work? Were you satisfied? Why?
Did it achieve the result you had expected? If not, was the unexpected better than the expected? Why or why not?
What would you do differently to make it more successful next time? Why?
Non-textual artifacts in the form of images, if any, are limited to 1 additional page. Use only common
graphical formats, such as JPG and GIF. (If special software - other than a common browser - is
needed in order to view your images, then you're doing something wrong.)
Should you need scanners, you can find them in both Sieg undergraduate labs (232 and 329). Save the image
to JPG / GIF format and attach it to your electronic submission. If for some reason you are unable to
scan your artifact, mention this in your submission and bring the artifact to class on that Monday.
