Your assignment is to create initial design documentation for a proposed final application project. Your final project for this class will require building a complete application of your choosing and design in Visual Studio. The application may be written in either Visual Basic, Visual C#, or a combination of both languages. Before you start your application, you must submit a proposal and have the application design approved by your instructor. This document forms the proposal.
Your final project must be a Windows application that involves at least five (5) of the programming techniques used in this class. You must use the .Net Framework classes and create derived classes from them (counts as one technique). The other four (4) techniques are up to you. For example, you could use forms, data validation, structures, and animation. While you have not yet covered all of the techniques, you now have a good idea of the kind of skills you will gain in the course. Providing this proposal now allows you to work on the project while you are completing the course.
This assignment creates the proposal and design document for your final project in this class. Submit the document in a Word-readable format (.docx, .doc, .rtf, .txt). The following tasks should be outlines in your design document.
State the application you wish to create for your final project. Justify why you feel this application will effectively demonstrate your programming skill. List and describe the five (5) techniques you will demonstrate through creating the application. This means writing the name of the technique, stating and discussing why you believe it is important, and describing how you will implement the technique.
NOTE: Think about what you can do and how much time it will take. How can you create an interesting application quickly and easily? Think seriously about what coding tasks were easy or interesting for you versus what tasks you disliked. Your goal is to design a practical project that you can complete during this course. DO NOT PROPOSE OR SUBMIT A PROJECT FROM THE TEXTBOOK!
This is a continuation of the assignment you have completed in Module Four.
In this assignment, you will update your final project proposal to plan for your project, creating a design that you can use to create your code project. While this is a working document, it is understood things many change between the design and implementation.
