    Highlights / Metacognition
    The highlight of last weeks class was leaving with a solid understanding of what defines object oriented programming. Applying real world examples to these concepts was a huge help. In the future this will be a great tool to use as a reference point if I am ever confused.

    I really enjoyed using the small groups to clarify the previous weeks concepts. It was great to test our knowledge and cross-check if we were correct. We could also work as a team to solve the misunderstood concepts.

    Thanks Christina. “In the future this will be a great tool to use as a reference point if I am ever confused.”
    This is one of main goals of the course.

    Good-afternoon Jim,

    Just exploring the “More Resources” section you’ve provided on your Wiki page, and was unable to access the information for “Developers Manifesto – Microsoft”.

    If you could update the link when you have a moment that would be great -thanks! 🙂

      Hi Jeannette,

      Thanks for pointing this out. The Developer Connection site is dormant now but I’ve just heard that they will be firing up a new campaign for student developers again soon. In the meantime I’ve updated my website and the link.
