Week 7

The next writing assignment, Writing Problem 4-3, is coming due next week. Deadline has been moved up to Monday, March 28. This essay involves various social issues related to the internet. You may choose from one of five topics. For extra credit, you may choose more than one topic. A grading rubric is now included in the problem description here.

We should all be working on learning and practicing using HTML/CSS, either using codecademy or the CS50 videos. Problem 4-0 should be created and tested using c9 and added to a new unit4 folder in your dropbox. If you are using images you have downloaded, or an external CSS stylesheet, please be sure to add these to your dropbox as well.

The styling programs we developed in class can be viewed here. Click on the link using chrome, then you can use developer tools to view the source. Be sure to view the css code as well.

For students having problems getting their preview to work, and/or apache50 to start, we have a fix!

Step1: Copy and paste the following line into your terminal window (do not click)

 echo "deb http://mirror.cs50.net/ide50/2015/dists/trusty/main/binary-amd64/ /" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cs50.list >/dev/null

Step2: Run update50

This should update your workspace back to version 53.

If you finish Problem 4-0, please move ahead and learn more about CSS styling if you are using codecademy, or watch the CS50 CSS videos. Syntax for CSS can be found at http://www.w3schools.com/css/.

Then move on to Problem 4-1, where you will create a nicely styled front end for your search engine. The process to send the get request for your search is demonstrated in David Malan’s search videos here.
