- | jQuery
- | MySQL
This week’s goals were to tackle jQuery in around three days and learn enough MySQL to conquer thirty or so brain teasing database queries. In the previous bootcamp I found jQuery really interesting, but it wasn’t until this second time around that I realized one of the amazing benefits this library provides. jQuery provides some amazing methods and tools for accessing practically any element on the page, and in a familiar CSSey (is that a real word??? >.>) way. This is of course on top of all the animation and effect based functions.
Once again I put my work up on github. I really enjoyed this particular jQuery assignment because it was the beginning of a game, and I love my video games.
some other things I worked on…
- | PHP
Beyond jQuery and MySQL, I started to work on PHP. One of my more memorable projects was a checkboard created dynamically with PHP, but I decided to add some jQuery to it and allowed the user to change the boards colors with either sliders or text inputs or even randomly.
Up until now, I haven’t had the assignment that hooks you and steals many hours of your time with fun tweaks and upgrades, but this was my first addiction. I iterated on this checkerboard many times, refining everything. I put the code here as usual, but I will also probably put it on my site as well (whenever I decide to finally make it… *sigh).
