Create Task Check in (end)

I have finished my create task, as well as the written portion and the video. One of the problems that I was having was with trying to get the function that added up the cost to work. My original plan ended up being to complicates, so in the end, I decided to make every topping a set price and then I just wrote a line of code that multiplied the length of the list that stored the toppings by the price per topping, then added that to the base price of the pizza.

I have written the main part of the program since that is the easiest part to do because it is essentially very similar to the one that we made in class. As of right now, the only difference between mine and the one I made earlier in the year in class is the simple things, like instead of saying "Welcome to the Ice cream shop" it says "welcome to the pizza builder". This will obviously change as I am planning for my next step to add a way to add up cost of pizza, as well as other things to try to take it to the next level. Right now I would say I am 50% done. The only challenges I had were just simple coding errors like misspellings something, however, I have sorted it out.

I decided to make a pizza builder that is similar to the ice cream exercises that we did in class. Right now I am in the very early stages, I essentially just know what I am going to make, however, I think I will be successful because of the practice that we had building a similar program in class. I will, of course, add elements to make it more complicated and work better than the ice cream lab.

Ring Cyber Attack

I personally believe that it is the customers fault because they should know what they are getting themselves into before they purchase a product. This could also fall partially on the company however, as one could argue that they did not make it very clear the potential privacy breach that is possible with a weak password. Overall though, I believe that the customers are at fault because they should have just picked a better password.

Mercedes Self Driving Car

I agree with the decision of Cristoph Von Hugo because the consumer is purchasing the automobile expecting that they would be safe in the event of an accident. Why should a pedestrian who didnt pay anything be saved instead of you, who payed what is sure to be a lot of money for the car. Also, you can imagine that people would be pretty angry if the car had an escape route out of harms way and it chose to crash and injure or hurt the driver. As a consumer, I would not feel comfortable purchasing a car that I know would rather kill me than some random pedestrian, so from a business standpoint I completely agree with Mercedes' choice.

Explore Task Update 12/10/19

I was not here Friday, so I didn't make any progress since then. The last time I was here however I did complete my goal which was to find at least one source about the pros and cons of the Roomba. Today I plan on finding more recent sources and beginning to compile my research.

Explore Task Update

Yesterday I finalized my decision, and began research. I have found two good websites that I will use that tell me how it works and what technology it uses. Today I will research more on some possible negative and positive affects of my topic, which I think is going to be the hardest part.
