There are no required text books for this course. I could not find one book that covers all the topics discussed in class and that I liked and I don't want to require multiple books as that gets expensive. However, here are the books that I recommend, if you do want to buy books:
- HTML Dog: The Best-Practice Guide to XHTML and CSS by Patrick Griffiths (@ amazon)
- PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy by David Powers (@ amazon)
I will also put my own copies of these books into the CS resource room where you can work with them. (Please don't remove them from the room!) And I will post link to online resources.
The final grade will be based on the following components:
|homework||25%||(should be done individually)|
|final project||25%||(will be a group project)|
What you need to do for this course
- come to class
- be prepared: review your notes, do the reading, do the assignments
- participate: answer questions, contribute to discussions, offer comments and observations and ASK questions
- come to talk to me outside of class with any questions, comments, concerns
- start assignments early and give yourself time to think about them thoroughly
- if you get stuck, come to ask questions
If you need special accomodations because of a disability or other reasons, please come to see me as soon as possible so that we can find a solution. You may have to get proper documentation from the Dean of Student' office. All such discussions will, of course, remain confidential.
A lot of my material is based on an earlier version of this course that was taught by Linda Almstead.
