Homework #4 - Front-End First Coding
It is time to implement the soccer team management application we speced in HW1 and prototyped in HW3. Traditionally as coding focused
computing professionals we would spend a great deal of time building data structures and models first, but so far in this class we have designed from the interface
down. In this step we should work upwards from the data and join the two halves. In this assignment we will build a partially functioning application and when finished all that be missing
will be a few server-side pieces of the application.
While later we will employ the Firebase service to provide authentication and storage for our application, in this part of the assignment we want to
build the application out without worrying about this cloud service, the network and all the related possible failures. To build our working app we will use Vanilla JS or jQuery focused JS
to make our screens from HW3 work. You are free to use either ES6 or ES5
Your app should:
Allow Login and Logout
Handle roster creation and management (full CRUD - Create, Read, Update, and Delete of players on the team)
Handle schedule creation and management (full CRUD of team schedule including practices and matches)
Perform statistics collection and display based upon what you speced in previous assignments
Any other feature you speced in HW3
You do not have to store data your team data in the cloud or a database. You can store the information in memory or local browser storage
Authentication can also be faked with some harcoded passwords. Homework #5 will remove any mocked features so be careful and use
abstractions so that it is easy to swap out a "faked" feature for the real one in the coming weeks.
You must make sure your application is tight and performant. Your evaluation should be performed with your median level Android phone throttled to a 3G connection.
We will of course evaluate your application during grading against the RAIL principles so keep focusing on speed.
Because you are turning in an interim step for this HW you must compose a planning document discussing upcoming changes and include comments on your decisions especially you had to cut corners or leave execution until later.
