4/7/20 - Create Task

After a lot of thought and deliberation, I have decide to scrap the hangman idea. I am instead going to use the code for our ice cream lab as a template for a grocery list app. It will be simple but it will also be efficient. There will be an option to add an item and delete an item. You will also be able to see a full grocery list if you choose another input. I will also use the pickle so that any list that is created will be saved after the user quits the program.

4/2/20 - Create Task

I have added more to the basic code that will be behind my game. I have created a list which will house the words and a random on will be picked. I also made a few if/else statements that will control the outputs when a user enters a letter that they are guessing for the current word. I want to create a basic functioning program and then I will start figuring out the other functions, abstractions, and anything else that will improve my program.

Create Task 3/23/20

I am checking in with this blogpost and I am still trying to figure out what I want to do for my create task and how I am going to do it. One program that I am leaning towards is doing a Hangman game where a random word is chosen from a set list of words and the user has a certain number of guesses to get the word. I like this idea but I am just having a hard time getting started. I know that I should have started this process a little sooner but I had been lazy and putting it off. So as of now I would probably put my status at a 2 because I have my idea and I have started the basic coding.

Big Data Sleuth Card


Some potential uses for the website above could be if a company is planning to build an offshore wind farm and they could study and monitor wind speed and direction. the data could also be used for people who were navigating such as mariners and aviators. The data is being visualized through the program and it would certainly be helpful in a situation that applies to the data. The data is being provided by the US National Weather Service. I would consider this big data because you can get a lot of use out of it and use it to compare with other data.

Ring Camera Cyber Attacks

I have mixed feelings about this topic. I believe that both the users and the manufacturers are both at fault. Ring did not compel or offer two-factor authentication and only required a simple password to set up the access to the cameras. However the users may also be at fault for not fully securing their connection themselves. ring should also be able to guarantee that the chances are a cyber attack of close to none.
