Hi all,

I thought maybe some of you like the idea how I cope with the must conditions in my assignment. You know what I am talking , these ugly little musts that one can easily forget and receive an automatic failure for it. I had 81 of these musts. And I was really afraid that I forget one of them .

What I did you can see below. I looked for all musts in my assignment and created a must feature list out of them.



With this, I had a perfect point of control.

Hope some of you find this useful for their own assignment .

Regards,
Darya

Very nice idea, thanks for sharing. If nothing else, it would help relieve your anxiety that you forgot something! And congratulations for passing, too

Thanks Lara for the Congratulations

You are right, anxiety was the driving factor behind the feature list.

What I had done, was opening the instructions file in a text editor and replacing "must" with "<B>MUST</B>". Then in the print out all the musts showed up nicely

Not as fancy as your table Darya, but it also worked perfectly for me.

Frans.

Hi Frans,

of course that works either . I must admit that I am a big fan of Feature Driven Development (FDD). So maybe this is, beside anxiety, also a reason I've chosen this approach.

Good idea! I'm thinking of changing "must" to:

<span font-weight="bold" font-size="freaking huge">MUST!!!</span>


Just so I don't miss one.

. Anything is allowed, just make sure you don't miss one.
