Week Information
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.
HELP schedule I will set up some optional class Zoom meetings that you can attend. Check the week of information to see the times and dates.
Milo is the tutor or SI for this class. I will send you the information about Milo's Zoom address and his hours. My office hours are 1 on Monday, 10 on Tuesday, 1 on Wednesday, 10 on Thursday. I hold my office hours on Zoom. If it turns out other hours work better for students these may change, so check back. I am also available by request (give me a few time options) especially while we get other support in place. I have been meeting with a lot of students that request it, maybe something you should consider doing. You can email me with a couple of times you can meet and usually one of those will work.
I will send out the information to contact me on Zoom. I will post availability but you can also set something up with me.

The recovery is going well and PHP should be available this week. So... I am putting up the material I want you to go over but I am holding back on some things, especially the assignment. Because a text book is not required, I want to point you to a few good PHP tutorials/ references that you can use throughout the semester. I will also put up sites related to current topics periodically.
Tutorials Point (PHP)
The W3 schools tutorial gives you option to test things
A slow moving basic tutorial
To load things up on the Internet, we use WINSCP. Please read the WINSCP and cisweb information: (note that in my examples I use as the host, we are now using as the host. The port has also changed to 220.
Here is information about using cisweb and WINSCP at BCC
Talks more specifically about portfolio We will be looking at making a portfolio later in the semester.
If you want to download WINSCP at home, you can find it at this address.


We will continue with PHP looking at Second Group PHP and we will start Third Group PHP. You can find Second Group PHP at Second Group PHP

Introduction to CIS159 - Spring 2022
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.
There are a lof of examples under CIS122 Internet Developer.
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 we are now using
The port is now 220.
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 PHP log 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


FirstGroupPHP - hello world through name
FirstGroupPHP - html to PHP

If you are new to HTML, I want you to build a web page. The page should include at least: list table, CSS and form.
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 February 2nd.(Note that homework is always due the Thursday of the week after it is assigned unless I give a specific due date.
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.
