| Assignments due in one week unless otherwise stated.
I may add some things during the week, so double check the schedule
each week! For almost all the assignments I want to see the code you write and the output it produces. So send me
the address and a copy of the code. With play computer assignments give me the code and the output as you feel it
would be generated. Please keep copies of all work you submit until you receive your final grade
at the end of the semester.
Remember that I record/tape all my classes and capture notes on the Smartboard. These are available to you under Audio and Smartboard.
Week of January 20th
|We will start off the semester with a quick review of HTML if needed and then we will actually start the PHP.
If you have already had CIS122/44 or have previous experience, this will
be a review. If you have taken CIS120/17, you have already been introduced to HTML. For others
I suggest that you use resources at the sites for CIS120/17 and CIS122/44 or other resources on the web to accquaint yourself with HTML.
This example covers some of the fundamentals: html5example.html
A great reference for writing HTML is W3Schools
The students in this class have a variety of backgrounds, so for some HTML is review and for others it is relatively new.
Handout on using WinSCP3 Note instead of the host as cisweb.bristol.mass.edu we are now using cisweb.bristolcc.edu.
WinSCP3 is available as open source software and you can download it for home use.
You should be getting a username/password for the BCC site at the end of this week.
We will be working exclusively off the BCC cisweb site. You do not need to install PHP or MySQL, they are on the server.
When we start to look at PHPlog into cisweb and copy my examples from First Group PHP up to the site.
You can find First Group PHP at First Group PHP revised - a few things have been added
If you are new to HTML, I want you to build a web page and upload it to the server (that cannot be done until you get your username and password). The page should include at least list, tables, CSS and forms.
If you are experienced with HTML, I want you to develop a page that challenges you and uses elements that you stretch your knowledge - this is the time to explore more CSS or forms - experiment!
Due the Thursday after the week it is assigned so due January 30th.(Note that homework is always due the Thursday of the week after it is assigned unless I give a specific due date - usually because I want to go over the assignment).
For all assignments and quizzes, send me the address that I can run in the browser to test your program and also send a copy of the code.
Check back after we have held a class
