Program 4, Episode 2: Manual Logout

Download Video: MP4, WebM

In this episode we create a way for users to log in. Then we secure some pages so they require being logged in. We talk for a while about sessions and how to manually edit them. In the back half of the show we make a page to list users, and add the capability to edit them. Finally, we get a start on the post class.

We more or less stay on topic for this show. Matt talks a bit about his new computer build, but that's about it.

Program 4, Episode 1: Been a While

Download Video: MP4, WebM

This week we kick off Program 4. This is the first program we're doing in something other than C#. Today we start working on a basic little blog written from scratch in PHP. We start out by writing up a simple database in MySQL using phpMyAdmin, including creating a user for the blog to use. In the process we show how long it's been since either of us have used MySQL, but luckily the basics transfer between relational databases.

We also stumble around PHP a bit. You could say we demonstrate how you need to be willing to look things up and adaptable when developing. We write a basic database connection wrapper, a single data layer class (user) and a page that lets us add a user.

Program 3, Episode 8: Spend an Hour on Each Dialog

Download Video: MP4, WebM

On this, our last episode of this program, we finish up our prototype of this writing program. We finish the notes and ideas area and introduce very basic statistics tracking.

We ramble on about several unrelated topics as well, but you'll just have to watch to find out. Hint: We talk about programming and geeky things.

At the end we do a postmortem on our development.

I (Matt) have indeed been working on it on the side. However, I haven't recorded all that much of it, sorry :( I just poke at it every now and then.

Program 3, Episode 7: I Don't Do Those Either

Download Video: MP4, WebM

This episode we build some more functionality into the items. We add the ability to attach and detach from any of the book part types. After that we add a new part of the application which allows you to write unassociated notes for your book in an organized way, essentially duplicating the way the main book functions.

While that's getting developed, we talk about gaming devices and our consoles preferences and histories. I bring up Escape Velocity for Mac, we also talk about Rock Band, and have some other random discussion of video games. There's a part where we talk about our musical tastes, current fashion trends, politics, and many other random topics.

Program 3, Episode 6: Rewrite

Download Video: MP4, WebM

This time we start on our first second day of a project. The programming is primarily fixing the mistakes I made last time and recoding the Item association pieces.

During this episode we talk about Diablo 3, note taking on phones and a little about Evernote, encryption and cloud storage safety, voice acting, cyborgs and prosthetics, running into other civilizations in space, hypothetical physics, and more about Diablo 3.
