The final exam is not mandatory. If you’re satisfied with your XP total without it, you don’t have to take it! (But you may if you like.)

Resubmitting JavaDoc, cont.

By stephen November 28th, 2018, under Uncategorized

Someone asked me a good question: what URL will Stephen click on to find the JavaDoc resubmissions?

Answer: when you (not your team, remember, but you individually) send me your resubmission email, include a URL that points to the website with your (not necessarily your team members’) latest and greatest revised JavaDoc. If that’s the same one your team sent me for your initial submission, that’s fine. If it’s a different Google Cloud instance than before, that’s okay too. Whatever link you send me, that’s where I’ll go to grade your stuff. (If your teammates send me a different link(s) if and when they resubmit their JavaDoc, then that’s where I’ll go to grade theirs.)

Make sense?
