In this project-based course students develop an intermediate-level
building interactive sites for the World Wide Web. This also prepares
students to work with existing content management
systems (e.g. Joomla! and Wordpress) and their themes.
Weekly assignments, mostly culminating in one overall project. I am not planning any tests.
Your PC. The software we'll be using is
XAMPP and Microsoft Web
Expression, which you can get through our Microsoft site license. (You're
free to use other editors if you like.)
Other helpful hints:
- Keep your old programs -- a following assignment may build on one
(in my class, or in a upper-division class).
- Put comments in, and indent correctly, as you write. The purpose of
comments and indenting is to make it readable -- and if it isn't readable, you
won't be able to get it working.
- Assignments are due at midnight of the due date. If you turn it in
by that time, and you want more time to work, you can have 2 more business
days to work on it with a 5 point penalty. If you don't turn it in on
time, you don't get credit.
- Absences: You can have 4 of them. If you have more, you fail the
class. We can deal with special
circumstances, such as playing an out-of-town game, if you tell me in advance.
- Handouts and assignments will all be posted on this site.
- How to turn in an assignment: email it to me, in ZIP
format. The name of your folder should be your name and the lab, as in
"briggs_lab1." Later we may use mintaka.
- Cheating is dealt with by the Honor Board. How much help is too
much with an assignment? If you're stumped on a problem, and someone shows you
how to solve a similar one, that's OK. If you're shown how to solve your
problem, that's too much.
