CS204: Professional Presence
Classmate Post #1
After reviewing my new scores I have made some improvement with my getting to work on time. I now leave extra early most times in order to take my time and if there are any delays than I would still be on time. I have always been a people person who loves to help in any way I could while under my care. As far as how I interact with co-workers when I am at a site that has another technician remain positively focused on the task at hand. what I could work on more is to focus is to communicate clearly so that I am fully understood after explaining something.

Looking back at the class and the amount of information I have be able to take and apply shows in the assessment survey of profession practices. I scored as follows; communication-19, attitude/behavior- 30, image – 4, and business practices -18. According to these categories, I am in the professional area. I do believe in my own criticism, I need to work on the communication because sometimes I tend to get into a rush and just start doing what I need to explain and don’t think about explaining things to new people. I will definitely need to work on the outward image when it comes to a complete professional environment, as coming from being in a coal mine to wearing a suit and tie everyday will be a big change and a big change. I am trying to slow down a bit and that way I have a calm to actually explain tasks. I will also do some research and do some questioning if/when I get an interview with a company as to what the dress code is.

Maintenance Phase phase is the longest phase because it continues for the full life of the software and guides all improvements and support.when the customers start using the developed system then the actual problems comes up and needs to be solved from time to time or Once a system is deployed it is in service for years and decades. During this time the system and its operational environment are often corrected, changed or extended. Testing that is provided during this phase is called maintenance testing. This process consists of two-part
- Testing the changes that have been made because of the correction in the system or if the system is extended or because of some additional features added to it
- Regression is the second part, tests to prove that the rest of the system has not been affected by the maintenance work.

As per Balgrosky, the standard development framework for programming platforms uses the software development life cycle methodology. The standard development cycle consists of seven stages which are conceptual planning, planning and requirements, design, development and testing, implementation, operations and maintenance and lastly, disposition. At the end of the seven stages if correctly followed a proper working application will be completed. I think the second stage of planning and requirements is the most important step in the cycle to make applications. The planning and requirement stage involves planning what the end product should be and work, requirements it needs to meet and how overall the product should function. This step is critical for the cycle otherwise someone with a great idea may go straight into designing but when it gets to testing it will fail over and over again wasting time and money for not planning properly. There is a famous quote by Benjamin Franklin, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”. I think of it as throwing a party, if you don’t plan you may forget to invite certain people, not have enough seating or forget the birthday candles. But, if you take your time to write out the plan, requirements and logistics then it is much more likely for the event to be a success.
