My JavaJam Exercises
I'm creative and can make your website look great.
I persevere and my WebDev skills are up-to-date.
Just call me to discuss your needs!
This page is something that I (Jim, the Instructor guy) created, to serve as a template for organizing your JavaJam exercises; as the index.html in your main student web folder, branching to JavaJam subfolders. Also, I designed it so it can serve as a handsome template for your own "online resume," if you'd like. It employs some cool Google Fonts and FontAwesome icons, cutting-edge stuff you can learn more about by reviewing the source code and searching online. You'll also see a practical example of CSS pseudo-classes in the page source code (eg: h3:before rule).
There are JavaJam exercises at the end of every chapter, Ch 4-11. However, you do not need to do the Ch8 JavaJam exercise. It's more complex than we really need to get into in this class. However, you should review the Ch8 JavaJam exercise to understand how to implement the "responsive design" principles it involves. These will be covered on the Final Exam.
The best way to organize JavaJam exercises on your computer is to create a JavaJam folder. Then, below that, create folders with names like ch5, ch6, etc. When you begin the next exercise, copy-paste the most recent folder, rename it, then add and modify as required. Next, upload that folder to your FTP area, creating a new subfolder. Then, modify your version of this or another index.html ("home") file, adding an "h3" and "p" section with appropriate links and upload. Voila!
Chapter 4 was the first "real" JavaJam exercise but still wimpy compared to the Chapter 5 and 6 exercises. You can begin with a Ch5 JavaJam link on your version of this page. Can also be used to pass along notes to me in evaluating your work.
This will link to your Ch6 JavaJam exercise. Every subfolder will have its own index.html file. For example, http://studentftp.gcccd.net/john.doe/ch6/index.html. In the 2nd half of the course, the main JavaJam exercises are Ch7 and Ch10.
