Program 8, Episode 1: Introduction to web development

Download Video: MP4, WebM

Matt's microphone was a little odd for this program, sorry ><

In this series, we spend some time developing a website from the ground up. There's a lot of discussion up front, including talking about our old college classes and reading rainbow.

On the technical end, we try to cover the very basics of introductory HTML and CSS. We start out by blocking out a basic one-column website, including a top banner, navigation bar, content, and footer.

Program 6, Episode 3: Saving Colors

Download Video: MP4, WebM

We wrap up the reminder system.

The first half of the time is spent getting things to serialize, allowing us to save and load properly. The second half we add a color/category that you can assign to each reminder.

Our random side discussion include: It's Cold, How often should we save?, and how strange it is that in our brains the alphabet is stored in a linearly linked list and not at random access.

We couldn't think of a way to expand this without it taking another 3 or more episodes, so we decided to call it where we were.

Program 6, Episode 2: Snoozing

Download Video: MP4, WebM

The reminder system is coming along.

Events get created, then updated, reminders happen and can be snoozed or dismissed.

In the meantime, we discuss different types of comments in different languages, our opinions on databinding, and a short discussion of m/d/y versus d/m/y date formatting. We probably talk about some other things as well.

Program 6, Episode 1: Video Games, no wait, Reminders

Download Video: MP4, WebM

In this episode we start work on a basic reminder system. Something where you can put in an event at some point in the future, and it will hassle you about it closer to that event.

This episode we are able to create an event and have the reminder fire. More programming gets done after that, but it's not yet at a runnable state by the end of this episode.

While we're working, we end up talking about error reporting, confusing clerks with NFC, coding styles, and a disproportional amount of talking about video games.

I swear this isn't a video game podcast...

Program 5, Episode 4: Video Games

Download Video: MP4, WebM

We finished up the falling block game by adding a score board that stays up to date, increasing the speed as we go, and clearing lines. We did not add a way to win, since the game we made can't be won. You just go until you lose.

That wraps up what we're going to do with SDL for now. If we get some requests (sent to any of our email addresses) we might revisit SDL and try to go into more details on something.
