I do not know what you know and what you do not know about JQuery and JavaScript and what things struck your interest as you were doing the reading last week and this, so... I want you to find 15 things that you read about and write a program or programs that incorporate them.
You need to put in comments that tells me where they are and what they do.

I want you to look at the first 3 chapters in the text boox I have for you to borrow. I will leave it in my office. The chapters are a review of JavaScript. Then I want you to start part II chapter 4 which starts JQuery. We did some of this in CIS258.
The downloads for the book can be found at and we are looking at the second edition.
Go through the exercises at the back of chapter #4 and make sure you are comfortable with them.
No homework to pass in, just hopefully pulling some things about JavaScript and jQuery together.

This week I want you to do another revisit to DOM in JavaScript. I would like you to go through the W3Schools tutorial on DOM with JavaScript and make sure you are comfortable with the things you can do and why you would do them.
I have a book you can borrow on JavaScript if you catch up with me next week.
DOM assignment based on W3 schools tutorial

    Separate speaker notes to accompany presentation on logical if structures
Some examples for this week: Loops and decisions (if statements)
Experiment with the things you read about which included passing data with the get and with the post and the basics of a for loop. You should do a program that uses the get and then change it to use the post. The for can be included or a separate program.
Loops and decisions assignment
Week #1
Week of January 23rd
Read chapter #1 and chapter #2 in the CGI/Perl text by Diane Zak. Contact me about the book used copies are available at Amazon for a few dollars and we will only use this text for a few weeks.
The information below is work I did a few years ago using another site:
Look at the first three PowerPoint presentations under the topic CGI/Perl. Presentations
This sheet shows setting the cgi to 755 as required. Setting cgi to 755
Look at the code for the programs which can be opened under Printed code to accompany examples for week #1. You can also download many (not all) of the examples from the beginning cgi/perl and beginning HTML. Examples
The examples I want you to go over are zipped.
Using the web site: Using WinSCP3
Do one of the hands on projects from chapter #1 and one of the case projects from chapter #2. If you do not have a site yet, write them and put them online when you get a site.
If you do not have a user id and password, contact me. Remember, when you make cgi files, you need to go into properties and set the rights to 755.
