CS 1401 Assignment #2

Date Assigned: Monday, January 30, 2006 or Tuesday, January 31, 2006.

Due Date: correspondingly, Monday, February 6, 2006, or Tuesday, February 7, 2006, before the beginning of your lab section.

Goals: The goals of this assignment are to learn hands-on the basic Java notions such as objects, variables, strings, assignment, input, output, etc.

Points: This assignment is worth a total of 20 points. No late assignments will be accepted, but credit will be given for partially completed assignments turned in on time.

Assignment: As you know, part of your grade comes from research experience, and one possible way to earn research experience credit is to present a report on a research talk by a research student or a visiting professor. In the future, we hope you will be giving talks for which younger students will receive their research credit. To help these future students prepare their reports, let us start designing a template for these reports.

Design an application class that will do the following:

  Research Report on a Talk by (your name here)
  presented on (data here) at the College of Computer Science of the
  University of Texas at El Paso

  On (date here), I attended a talk by (your name here) on
  (your topic here). I was very much impressed with this talk,
  especially with (your achievement here).

  I hope that by the time I graduate I will as smart as (your name here).

  (first name and last name of the reporting student)

Example: For example, if your name is Edith Elizalde, you are interested in robotics, you want to design a robot that would explore the nearby stars, and the future student Carlos Licon attended your talk on January 30, 2026, the computer should print the following report:

  Research Report on a Talk by Edith Elizalde
  presented on January 30, 2026 at the College of Computer Science of the
  University of Texas at El Paso

  On January 30, 2026, I attended a talk by Edith Elizalde on
  robotics. I was very much impressed with this talk,
  especially with the robot that explores nearby stars.

  I hope that by the time I graduate I will as smart as Edith Elizalde.

  Carlos Licon
