CSCI 1720

Intermediate Web


These are some 'examples' I've worked up over the years. It occurred to me that some of the examples, what I think of as 'doodling,' might be of use to students. Some of the files are HTML format; others PHP, but it shouldn't make a difference. If it turns out that it does, I'll convert everything to PHP

This is another work in progress. I have some other example pages and plan to make more as time goes on. A lot of the examples use JavaScript and jQuery. Feel free to look at the code. Over the years, I've learned that examining code is an excellent way to learn it. Don't just look at it, though, ask yourself what each line, each block of code is doing. It will help. I know from experience
