Feb 09, 2009 Assignments page has been updated with the next weeks assignment.  Readings page updated with chapter 3 readings.  4 new threads created on ning.com for using as a study guide and discussing questions and answers from end of chapters 1 to 4.
Feb 03, 2009 I have created a social networking website at http://mis-sjsu.ning.com/.  Ask questions and get answers from your peer.  You get 5 points for asking or answering a question up to a max of 100.  Max 10 questions will be considered from grading.  (This is to encourage you to answer other people also). However more you participate, better the likelihood that I make an exception and round your 89.1% into 90% for an A-.  Your questions should include what efforts you have put in to solve the problem and where you got stuck.  For example, instead of asking  how do I change the color of this control? or what is the code for Fibonacci series, try asking something like, I am trying to change the color of this control by doing this! I have tried this other way but it is still not working.  Can anyone suggest an alternate way?  Or I am trying to write a code for Fibonacci series using this loop but it is not working.  Here is my code.  Does anyone see any error or suggest a solution?
