Please check your University email account regularly for the next week
in case I need to contact you about downloading, installing and running
your Assignment 2 submissions. I'll be testing on my laptop which has
Ruby 2.0.0 and Rails 4.0.2 installed.
There is no laboratory today.
Some material to help with examination preparation is available here
and here (PDF).
Congratulations to everyone who submitted their solutions to
Assignment 2 on time.
I've made some comments about sample data requirements for Assignment
2 on the Facebook page.
Remember the lunchtime presentation in L04 1.01 today. (5/2)
Please complete the course survey this week. In the open-ended
question, please give your opinion of Rails, of the lab exercises, of the
assignments, of my Website vs l@g, of the FB forum, of the difficulty of the
course, of how much you learned, of what topics you would like omitted or
added, etc. It would be helpful if you added your name or at least the
grade you expect to receive. Note that I don't see any responses until after
all grades are finalised.
Reminder: Free lunch and industry talk by staff from River City Labs at 1pm on
Wednesday 5 February in L04 1.01 (opposite Brook Cafe). (3/2)
I've made minor improvements to the lecture notes on category
selection and user-defined searches. (26/1)
A PHP-based implementation of an approximation to Assignment 1 is
available for use at http://dwarf.ict.griffith.edu.au/~s352978/solutions/assign1-2013/.
This implementation lacks header links to static pages and has a too simple
presentation. Also, it's behind a Griffith University firewall, so you
need to use VPN
if you wish to use it from home. (24/1)
I've already published Laboratory 3 and 4, so I'll give you credit for
completing what I asked for initially. However, you will learn much
more, and be much better prepared for Assignment 1, if you follow this
revised specification instead
(for which I'll also give credit)!
