UWA week 24 - 1st semester, 1st exam week

Sat 13th Jun 2020, 7:38pm, Arran S.
Hi, There won't be any exam questions requiring you to draw diagrams. It's try that sometimes it can be more effort to explain an answer in words than by drawing a diagram, so one way of preparing might be to spend some time practising that: take a concept...

Tue 26th May 2020, 11:17am, Arran S.
Hi all, Just confirming that there *is* a CITS4401 class tomorrow, at the usual time (2-3:50pm). There is no new lecture material; it will be entirely dedicated to revision. I propose to allow students time to practice writing exam-style answers to design...

Mon 25th May 2020, 4:28pm, Arran S.
Hi all, Just a reminder that if you have any queries about studying for the exam, tomorrow's lecture is a good forum to discuss these in. Feel free to email me any questions you have about the exam or topics you would like discussed. (Or, you are welcome...

UWA week 21 - 1st semester, week 11

photo Project clarifications: Friday is the 22nd, separate decomposition diagrams OK
Mon 18th May 2020, 2:54pm, Arran S.
Hi all -- It's been brought to my attention that Friday is the 22nd, not the 21st, so I've correct that in the project spec. Also, while discussing the decomposition diagrams for several groups as part of their requested feedback appointments last week,...

Mon 18th May 2020, 1:01pm, Arran S.
Hi Dylan, I incorrectly stated that if you opt out of ExamSoft, some Unit Coordinators might offer alternative assessments. This is NOT the case. It ONLY applies if this would be your last semester of study for your degree. Unit Coordinators aren't able...

Wed 13th May 2020, 4:38pm, Arran S.
Hi all - cssubmit has been opened for the assessed exercise. If someone would like to try it out now and let me know if there are any problems, that would be great :) (You can re-submit any time up until 8 pm, so it's fine to submit partially done, or even...

Yes, absolutely. Feel free to re-use bits of it if you want - you should be able to open it using Draw.io (https://app.diagrams.net/). You are also welcome to use other software, if that is your preference. Surprisingly, Excel turns out to be quite reasonable...

photo Workshop next week - more decomposition
Fri 8th May 2020, 5:02pm, Arran S.
Hi all - A slight change of plan for next week: rather than an industry workshop, I am planning to cover more on system decomposition (since it's only mentioned very, very briefly in the textbook). I hope that doesn't interfere with anyone's plans. We will...

Hi all - I know the help4401 isn't always the easiest system to navigate, but one feature which might be of assistance is the search box (near the top and to the right-hand side of the page). If you know a word or phrase from a post or topic you're after,...

Hi all, I've opened the cssubmit deadline - let me know if you have any trouble accessing it. I've also uploaded (to the website and to Google Drive) answers to the questions people asked about what's required.

Wed 29th Apr 2020, 4:19pm, Arran S.
Hi all, I've added the Zoom links to the LMS welcome page for CITS4401, so that they're the first thing you see if you log in. But to re-cap, they are Zoom links for attending lectures and tutorials: CITS4401 Tuesday lecture: https://uwa.zoom.us/j/581901984...

Also, regarding the assessed workshop: It will only cover material from the "Design" part of the unit - if you want to revise beforehand, then reviewing the slides and textbook will be sufficient. cheers Arran

Hi all, # Welcome Welcome to the "Design" portion of the unit - hopefully you had no difficulty attending the Tuesday lecture and today's lecture+workshop. Just to clarify - I believe all the same Zoom links and passwords should work, I don't think you...
