ah teaches web design & development (More Code than Design lecture)
More Code than Design
Thinking further about web development. Lecture slides will be made available on the day of the lecture (Nov 17).
Please form into groups of 3-4 and pull out your draft bios and process analysis.
We will be reviewing our bios and process analysis with your groups.
Please take turns reading your bio out loud. While you are reading out your bio, others should consider:
- Are you specific about what you do?
- Do you give us a sense of where you are and where you want to be?
- Does the bio sound 'common' or 'standard'?
You have 8 minutes.
Please pass your process analysis to another person in your group. While you read through another process analysis, please note:
- Do they define what they did as an individual in this group?
- Do they showcase their thinking in this process?
- Does the reflection respond to what was spoken of in the analysis?
- Do they have artifacts that are referenced by the text?
You have 8 minutes.
We will be holding the coding quiz during our lecture time on Nov 24.
For the quiz you will be presented with a problematic set of code. Fixing it will only require use of HTML and CSS. There are two parts to this quiz:
- Explaining where there are problems and what are the problems in the code (worth 7/10 marks)
- Fix the problems in the code (worth 3/10 marks)
For explaining where there are problems and what are the problems in the code you will be graded on clarity and quality — the description of errors and explanation must be detailed enough that we can see you understand the problem and solution.
This will be worth 7 of 10 points. Part marks are possible.
For fixing the problems in the code you will be graded on code validity and solution completeness.
This will be worth 3 of 10 points. Part marks are possible.
What do I review for the quiz?
I highly recommend reviewing anything we have covered with regards to HTML markup, CSS styling and layout and developer/debugging tools in preparation for the quiz.

For today's code tutorial
We will be covering code pre-processing, for which we will need prepros.io
Once you have that installed, take a look at pugjs.org and sass-lang.com
