Hello class –

Here’s the agenda for class on Thursday 10/26.

  1. Introduce functions (Presentation) – While user-defined functions are not on exam 2 – you will need to get an understanding of them soon enough!
  2. Explore an enhanced version of the suggestion box example.  There’s a lot to unpack in this example:
    • Use of multiple forms in a page
    • Use of functions to consolidate database functionality into one place
    • Use of a self-referencing page
  3. If time permits, we will upload this exercise to the class server

See you in class.
