9:45 A Chrome Extension for Web Development
There are many different tools out there for Web Design and Development, let’s all install a free one which works in conjunction with Chrome that deals specifically with Web Validation.
10:10 Supplemental Site Maintenance
I did not grade any of the web projects which were due yesterday. I realized I had yet to tell you of the penalties for invalid html5 code – until after school yesterday.
Anything invalid has a maximum grade of a “D”, even if turned in on time.
At this point in your programming career validators can help us fix silly mistakes which are coming up in your code. (Further along the semester we are going to find it very hard to validate code as there are so many authors, parts, plugins, widgets, etc, but for now, there really isn’t a reason for invalid code.)
- Not closing a header
- Not closing your links
- Missing quotations marks, etc.
What I typically do is pick a random page from your project and validate it. A single error? D.
Why am I so aggressive? The validator will not only tell you the problem but tell you the line number the error is on. The only real explanation for turning in invalid code is laziness. D.
Nobody has lost any points yet!
As I am a swell guy, I am going to give you from now to break as a supplemental portion of Site Maintenance. Check all pages. Fix. Upload fixes – some of us are finding errors and then fixing on the development version on your iMac, but not uploading the corrected code to the web server!
I will be grading your Web Projects today after school, for full credit.
