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! Please keep copies of all work you submit until you receive your final grade at the end of the semester. You should buy the CGI/Perl Text by Diane Zak (check used books) for the end of the semester. The book used be around $10 - it is now really high so if you cannot find it or a substitute lete me know and I will send material to you.

Week #11
Week of April 6th
Project in Perl, Node.js or another project we agree on for the rest of the semester.
You also have a final exam project in JavaScript.
There will be no further postings - ask questions if you are unclear on anything.
Week #10
Week of March 30th
I will give extra credit to anyone who goes to the Collaborate site (see link in HELP above) and either works with Joe on something they need help with or shows him something they have done for the course. Send me an email and let me know what you did. Actually this applies to doing something with Joe using Teams app as well.
I would like you to start an assignment on another topic. You can choose Node.js which will involve individual research, learning Perl which has a lot of notes and examples or another topic that you and I agree on. Please let me know which direction you would like to take. I will get back to you on this - I am having some problems with the server and storage. The information about Perl is at Perl Information If you decide to go with Node.js it is an independed project and you and I need to agree on the scope.
Your final in this course is to do a significant project using JavaScript. There should be a lot of processing, user input, features, links etc. You can run it by me. This is a catch-up week and also a chance to get started on the final.
Week #9
Week of March 23rd
Officially there are no classes and no assignments this week. However, I decided to post this weeks work anyway so you can get started on it if you choose to. I feel that choosing to do the work this week will spread the work out better and make the end of the semester easier no matter how it is handled. I will keep putting out the work for each week as originally planned to give you more flexibility. Late points will not be taken. Again, it is your choice whether you do the work this week or leave it for next week.

Now lets do a similar assignment.
Under the more there are some neat things including how to chat etc. Pick 10 that interest you. Can combine some, just have to let me know what you did.

There are lots of examples of Hangman games written in JavaScript on the web and in books. Feel free to look at them to help you understand how to write one.

I also found this site on drawing graphics
Basic animation
Another explanation of drawing shapes
Experiment and check back! If you can find a good JavaScript editor feel free to use it. I have tried a few free ones but have not found anything I really like.
