  • Visual Basic Object Oriented Programming

    Visual Basic can be used to create UI and UX rich programs for Windows platforms in a very short time. Whereas, C++ can be used to write complex programs that needs to computer faster without using much hardware resources. C++ is command line based language, on the other hand, Visual Basic is IDE and event driven language. For example, creating a pop up box in C++ is a tedious task. If the programmer is writing from scratch, making a window appear in C++ will take you 15 minutes to program…

  • Reflective Analysis Of An Argument

    When I started this course, I was unaware of the different types of writing and the massive amounts of research behind it. Prompts given to me were thought provoking and interesting, so I took a lot of interest in various types of arguments and assignments. What caught my interest in this subject is how, as a writer, one has to argue from both sides, include research data to support them, and then conclude them with a winning argument. My collection of persuasive writing demonstrates that I…

  • Opc Disadvantages

    There are different types of programming such as object-oriented programming (OOP), event-driving programming (EDP), and procedural program, (PP). Some people may agree that there are advantages of using OOP instead of only using PP. A class may have one attribute and one method, in which the class represents an event, the attributes the class stores and the purpose of the method. The class, attributes, and methods share a relationship. Visual Logic is used to learn about programming but lacks…

  • Pairwise Combination Strategy And Constraints Strategy

    One of the objectives of this research is to develop a tool in Java programming language. Following the stated objective, CBPTT was developed in Java language and integrated using the NetBeans IDE 8.0.2 software. In order to show how pairwise combination strategy and constraints strategy was implemented in CBPTT let consider the example illustrated in Table 1.1. There are three parameters with quantity of 2, 3 and 3. These parameters are input as string which is presented as {2,3,3}. From this…

  • Object-Oriented Programming: The Basic Elements Of Object Oriented Programming

    (“cplusplus.com” n.d.). Primitive data types, such as int, float, and char, are nearly indistinguishable, and arithmetic operators, such as addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (*), and division (/), are carried out in the same manner. Control constructs, such as if statements, for loops, while loops, and switch statements, are also shared among both languages(“cplusplus.com” n.d.). Both languages support classes, and single inheritance in C++ is comparable to Java (“Cornell.edu” n.d.).…

Additionally, NASA astronauts practiced docking 2 spacecrafts together, which was essential for the potential success of achieving a lunar landing. Both the Mercury and Gemini programs proved to NASA that a manned lunar…
