On the lighter side After describing the circular sociology of “there can be only one JSON thing in a json file” or the imminent death of Fortran (see Psychology of Programming), JH in the 09:50am section sent me to

As of next Tuesday, we will test-run code walks. We will start with a a set of panelists code walking my solution to one of our assignments, then some of us will play panelists for code walking a pair from the class. Following those two, we will conduct a couple of more trial runs with both presenters and panelists drawn from the class.
the upside is that you get to practice
the downside is that you get feedback in public

The transformation of textual information into internal
data is known as parsing, a technical problem that spawned an
entire research area. Parsing is so complex, it should never be used
in an introductory course but to this day, many such courses assign
programs that read text, analyze it, and react to it—
At first glance, JSON is a simple notation for writing down information in terms of Booleans, Strings, Numbers, arrays of JSON expressions, and objects of JSON expressions. But, as it turns out, turning JSON information into internal data is a minefield; indeed, no two JSON parsers seem to accept the same JSON inputs.
You should keep this fact in mind for your upcoming co-op and future employment.

The actual purpose is two-fold: (1) to get to know your partner with a tiny on-line assignment, and (2) to learn to live up very rudimentary specifications.
Note You were provided with email contacts, and some people may not read their emails on a daily basis, especially not over weekends. So, give your partner until Monday noon to get in touch with you, that is, reply to your first message. This deadline leaves you with 12 hours to finish something that ought to take 30 mins max in total.
If your partner does not reply to your emails by Monday noon, let your instructor know.

Welcome to the Fall 2020 issue of Software Development. As always, we aim to deliver a course that teaches you a lot, not in terms of industrial tools and techniques but for your life as a reflective software developer.
this front page serves as a universal announcement scroll,
the Assignments, Actual page serves as your “task list,” and
a few other pages come online as needed.
The College’s web services company caches pages on a too-permanent basis, injecting the occasional miscommunication. The backup site for the course can be found at the personal web page of the lead instructor.
