Assignment 6

A6 is Posted

The instructions for the assignment are accessible from the main Assignments page.

This assignment covers classes and nested lists, using these topics to implement a variation of the game Connect 4. This is a brand new assignment and we are not sure how long it will take. Previous versions of Assignment 6 have taken 14-16 hours to complete on average. Beta testing suggests that this is a shorter assignment, but we will not know until you complete it.

For that reason, we suggest that you get started as soon as possible. To help you budget your time, we have set many micro-deadlines throughout the assignment. The first of these is the Wednesday after the assignment is released. We want you to have read the assignment and worked on the first (short) function by then. Keeping up with the micro-deadlines allows you to work on the assignment a little every day and reduce stress.
