But the html is fun!
Here's the result of the first two lab exercises...
It's not live, but our class projects will be. I'm putting my link in the left column for those who want to play along. And no, there's nothing there but the intro page. Soon.
This programming stuff is fun. Another tidbit about moi- computer science was my first career choice. I really liked programming. I hated Cobol, but I did really good in Fortran, Assembler, and Basic language programming. Why didn't I finish? Well, read this. I don't want to go through it all again.
When I came to my current employer in 2001, I had a good IT guy in our lab who believed anyone could learn anything, and my boss needed a web page so I helped to begin this http://www.vet.purdue.edu/cpr/riyi/publications.html. I input the papers through part of 2004 and there used to be a page for this lab that I helped set up, too. There was another guy who controlled the web page, but he loaded what I wrote. That was a while ago, though, and I didn't really "learn" it. The logic, I mean.
That's what I like about this class so far. The grad student is Korean so I am working on getting my brain wrapped around her accent, but give me a week and I'll be speaking like she does. Too bad you guys won't be able to hear it! But we are learning the logic of the language. The bad part- she isn't going to teach us the Java Script. Kinda bummed about that. Maybe I can get answers on it during office hours. She did give us notes. And I can always pilfer other web pages to figure things out.
So that's where I'm at today. New knowledge in my head, new neural connections being formed, and tomorrow is a short day because no class on Fridays. So I will be going to Gordmans to get more flip flops. Woohoo!
