This is a problem set. Some of these are easy, others are far more difficult. The purpose of these problems sets are:
- to build your skill applying computational thinking to a problem
- to assess your knowledge and skills of different programming practices
What is this problem set trying to do
At a prestigious international school, we have only 5 administrators, Michael, Carol, Jen, Constance and TJ. Your program should ask the user to type in their name. If their name matches one of our administrators, your program must output a special greeting. If the user input is any other name (does not match the list of administrators) your program should simply output a simple greeting.
There is no testing for user input. That is, if a user enters a number, an integer, or nothing, your program should not evaluate the input.
- User Input: Name: Bill
- Expected output: Hello Bill
- User Input: Name: TJ
- Expected output: An administrator! Hello TJ
- User Input: Name: 123
- Expected output: Hello 123
In the hacker version:
- Your program should test for valid user input. The user input should be only allow for strings
THIS PART ISNT DONE YET
How you will be assessed
