Hi, I have had TMA 3 back and I am fairly pleased to say that I scored 63, usually I would be mortified by this score but the amount of trouble I had with the programming aspect of the TMA was enough to drive me to drink!
Blocks 1 and 2 were ok and I could understand what was going on, but as soon as I hit block 3, the skill level went from 10 to 100 and it just left me standing, I was not the only one who had major issues with TMA 3 there were so many other students that were in the same boat as me.
I had to amend the code for a guest book and it had to be responsive, in other words the content had to resize and reposition its self when ever the screen size changed. Another thing we had to do is to get it to save data to the local storage section that is in the web browser, this is not usually good practice as this storage area can be looked at by the user or anyone that is using the computer. This is a temporary measure and that the local storage should be cleared and the data to be sent to the web server. I managed to get the storage key to stay in but it would not add the value of the data, this was really giving me a headache and it did not matter how my tutor or any of the moderators in the forums explained it I just could not understand it.
In the end I just lost the will to live and just handed in what i've done. I did all the other work i.e the reports etc otherwise I would have failed this TMA.
