Final wrap-up activities (subject to negotiation and discussion)
Final process reflection piece, done solo. Identify a principle or process that Rasmusson emphasizes in The Agile Samurai or that is highlighted in the Agile Manifesto and write a 2-3 page reflection on your experience over the semester with that principle or process.
Thesis and outline/summary due 10pm, Tuesday, 1 May so we can discuss this in "lab" on Thursday and/or class on Wednesday or Friday. Final version due at your one-on-one meeting with Nic.
We need a lecture on how the web works: HTML, CSS, HTTP, browsers, servers, etc.
We need a lecture here with a high-level view of how all this works. Grails generates the view, sends HTML to the user's browser, the user fills in the form, the browser uses POST to send an HTTP response back to the server with all the user's replies, Grails parses all that and passes it to a controller in a nicer form that we can query to learn what the user entered, the controller code initiates appropriate actions (e.g., creating a UserResponce? object, populating it, and saving it) and redirects to the new view.
