Course Description

191-Web-Based Programming For Engineers - Part 2

The objective of this course series is to present web-based computer programming to engineers. Engineers generally learn a conventional computer programming language such as FORTRAN, Pascal, C++, etc. Since the advent of the internet and the World Wide Web, web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc. have built-in capabilities to interpret and implement programmed instructions written in a class of programming languages called scripting languages. Web-based programming involves writing codes, called scripts, in a scripting language. The scripts are embedded in the structure of web pages. Unlike conventional general purpose programming languages, web-based programming does not require any special software to be installed. The scripts are interpreted and implemented directly by the web browser. Web-based programming is an increasingly relevant and advantageous tool for engineers competing in the global marketplace in the age of the internet and the World Wide Web. Once uploaded to the World Wide Web, web-based applications are immediately exposed to a global audience.

This course is the second of a series on web-based programming. This class presents Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) forms and the JavaScript scripting language. This course uses screenshots and an easily readable click-by-click narrative that engages participants as they proceed through the topics. This course starts with an overview of the HTML language used to create web pages, followed by HTML forms and controls. The fundamentals of the JavaScript language are then presented in detail. Several examples and illustrations from many fields of specialty are presented to illustrate the creation and editing of interactive web pages using HTML codes and JavaScript scripts. At the end of this course, participants will be capable of building a web page from scratch, editing and updating existing web pages using HTML and JavaScript alone. Participants will be able to create fully functional interactive web pages and web applications that can be used to input and output data, as well as run complex algorithms. On completion of this course participants will be able to identify professional situations in which applying web-based programming will be of great benefit to them in their fields of specialty, and to their organizations.

Excellent. As a FORTRAN programmer the HTML, JavaScript coding seemed a little odd. This course shows how simplistic it is in a very well laid out process.

Highly enjoyed this course as a follow up to Part 1 of web-based programming. Good intro to javascript if you have never used it before.

Helpful course. I, too, had difficulty getting the All-Red Clearance Interval to work. After much frustration, then being reminded of the unbalanced form tag by one of these reviews, I added the /form ending tag as well as moving the final /form ending tag to within the last /p paragraph ending tag. That put the calculated value into the form output field. Incidentally, the All-Red Clearance Interval script code is in the part 3 free software, and it doesn't work without these fixes.

I could not get the Practicum2.html script to calculate the All-Red Clearance Interval despite spending considerable effort on the problem. I did notice that there are two form open tags in the script, and only one form closing tag. Adding a second closing tag did not solve the problem. I could not find any other case of unbalanced tags, or etc.

Excellent Continuation of Good Course

I strained a little to get thru Part 1. Part 2 was a joy. I was already comfortable with numerical programming notation and algebraic operators.

In addition, the examples are very intriguing.
