Debrief on the course
Three goals for the course
- Prepare Sam's summer research students (or subset thereof)
- Learn some languages related to image making
- Web site development
Knowing then what you know now, would you still take this course?
- But not everyone
Things that were really successful?
- Building on to the original "build a Web site" assignment.
- Should probably be formalized.
- Range of different languages and things we learned. Cover a large things
that are useful.
- A bit of familiarity with languages
- We know we can probably teach ourselves these things, but it gave
us incentive to do so
- Review of student work.
- Comments in class
- Outside of class
- Open-ended assignments was helpful because you could explore different
options. Didn't need to accomplish a particular goal.
- But some people need structured questions
- Sam should give choices - Here's something for those of you who
need structure; Here's the general thing for those who don't
- GitHub is likely to be useful.
- education.github.com probably lets you sign up for a private account
Things that were less successful?
- 8 a.m.
- No food. Sam classes always have food.
- Need more organization.
- GitHub repo earlier.
- Assignments posted in easy-to-find locations.
- Actual readings.
Knowing what you know now, how would you structure the class
differently in terms of topics?
- More database. Maybe earlier.
- Separate Processing and Web development courses
- Drop Postscript or at least show us cool things we can do.
- Disect a Web site and then rebuild and then discuss the IP (intellectual
property, not Internet protocol) issues of having done so
Other changes you would make?
- Some large group assignment that involves branching and such.
- Emphasize portfolio building.
- Competition with a pitch.
- Capstone project.
- More lectures (or less lectures, more reading)
