IP352F15A – Programming Mindset & Mechanics Session Three Notes

Quick update – we have a new course you might want to join. It’s starting next Tuesday and there are still seats available.
HTML5 – The Semantic Web I hope to see you there.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
Consider this picture.

Learning Cycle

Can you see how this applies to what you are doing before our sessions and while we are together?

Please reply with a comment about our third session.

Highlights / Metacognition

  • What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
  • What did you learn from that?
  • What will you do with that knowledge?

Questions?

  • Now that we’ve had our third session, what do you want to know?
  • How will you get the answers?
  • What could we have done better?

If you spot a question from someone else and you can answer it – please do.

    1) What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    •Translation vs. Interpreting
    2) What did you learn from that?
    •There are two forms implementation: compiled and interpreted.
    •In compiled implementation, the original program is translated into native machine instructions, which is executed directly by the hardware. In an interpreted implementation, the original program is translated into something else, in which an interpreter examines it and performs the action.
    3) What will you do with that knowledge?
    •I will pick a few different languages and see which category they might fall under.

    Highlights / Metacognition

    •What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    The intro on different programming languages and how they define variables (for example: specific such as naming, numbering, brackets – {} or [)

    • What did you learn from that?
    One thing I learned about Javascript is that it’s a very forgiving language. Lots of people tend to get away with copy and pasting from other sites and manipulating the code to work – VERY BAD HABITS!

    • What will you do with that knowledge?
    Continue to learn and try to fully understand the languages I’m using while programming to my best ability. Good habits can and will prevent future issues with coding.

  3. HIGHLIGHTS:
    1. What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    * Introduction to scripting and compiled languages.
    2. What did you learn from that?
    * Scripting languages are easier to use as they require attention to detail,
    however with a price of slower performance.
    3. What will you do with that knowledge?
    * I will try to perfect compiled languages such as HTML even though they require more accuracy and skills.

  4. Wan Qi Jin says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    The meaning of scripting language
    The differences and similarities between different languages during the coding
    The differences between Translate and Interpret
    The scripting language VS. compiled language
    What did you learn from that?
    Scripting language displays the value of something. For example:
    Scripting and Data Types (easy to read and write and it’s easier to get wrong)
    is very interest text 1 (25)+ text 2 (35)+ text 3 (40) = text 1,2,3 (253540)
    Text 1,2,3 = Text value.
    Translate (language translate ) vs. Interpret (Interpreter try harder convince people, always in the environment, it also examines it and performs the action). The problem of interpreter language: two sides speak the different language. It’s not efficiency. Compiled language (people translate, but nobody will help). Skill is very important.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    I would like to try different types languages, and then find the right one for myself.

    • What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    The most valuable thing was to get a deeper introduction to some programming fundamentals after we looked up for the definitions ourselves during the second assignment. It was just a good way of consolidating our new knowledge.
    • What did you learn from that?
    I understood the definitions better, e.g. what and array or a variable is.
    • What will you do with that knowledge?
    I think I will have a good starting point in order to dig deeper into programing languages.

  6. Janice says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    -Learning what an array was

    What did you learn from that?
    -That it is a collection of variables of like type. The parking lot example was effective in helping me understand that

    What will you do with that knowledge?
    -Since arrays are used in programming, I can use that knowledge to structure data.

  7. Sid Lekhi says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?

    Difference between compiling and interpreting.

    What did you learn from that?

    That one does a literal interpretation of code and the other “thinks” when interpreting code.

    What will you do with that knowledge?

    Be more cognitive when writing code based on whether its a compiler or interpreter.

  8. Megan Daniels says:

    What did you think was the most valuable thing that happened for you tonight?
    Logging on to jsbin!
    What did you learn from that?
    That you get to see the outputs from different coding languages – a great source for playing around with code.
    What will you do with that knowledge?
    Experiment with code, particularly javascript.
