Attendance:

Attendance is required to all classes. Due to the seminar format of the classes,
tardiness is discouraged. If there is an issue regarding the schedule, make an
appointment with th
e instructor to discuss possible alternatives. Online work is
required.


Important: You can get help from your programmer friends or from other books.
Once you submit the work, it will be considered as your own work. I may randomly
ask questions on the su
bmitted work and want you to explain to me how your code
functions. If you fail to explain a submitted code, your grade for that assignment
will be an “F”. There are no exceptions. This is rule applies to HTML, SQL and
ColdFusion code.


Course Methodolog
y:

This course will consist of lectures, class discussion, weekly assignments and a final
project. Students will develop HTML/CFML files for interacting with existing databases.
You will use your existing student directory on the IBS server to view your CF

code.
Class notes & handouts will be available on the Course web page. I will also distribute
handouts.
