Week 2

Terminology

URL URL stands for Universal Resource Locator. It is the address of a web page. Each page has its own unique web address (URL). This is how your computer locates the web page that you are trying to find.

HTTP The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. HTTP is the foundation of data communication for the World Wide Web.

HTML HTML or HyperText Markup Language is the standard markup language used to create Web pages. HTML is written in the form of HTML elements consisting of tags enclosed in angle brackets (like <html> ).

Tags Tags are codes in an HTML document which the browser reads and then interprets for subsequent display to a reader. Tags are not visible when an HTML document is viewed in a browser, but their effects are. Tags begin with the opening symbol "<" and end with the closing symbol ">"; and usually come in pairs, one that begins an action and one that ends it.

hi <b>there</b> everyone

hi there everyone.

Week 4

Week 5

  • Go to this template (which was what we made last week)
  • Hit 'Remix'
  • Login (Login with Persona) and use the same user and password as last week
  • Look through the code.
  • See how, from last week we copied the same

<

div> containers a few times over to duplicate our flipping card?

  • Notice that the first div container has an extra attributed added  : card1

<

div class="back" id="card1" > AND that there is a new style added

#card1, #card4{ background-image: url(http://content9.flixster.com/question/33/54/66/3354663_std.gif); }

This is how we tell the webpage we want to card1 and card4 the same background.

  1. With a goal of having two cards matching, please add styles for cards2 - cards12

Take your time, have fun. You can also add a few more cards if you want, but recommend max of 20

  1. Change 'flipper speed' so people can see the picture for a longer period of time. Hint you'll find this in the .flipper portion of style. If you think your game would be more fun at a fast speed that's OK too :)
  2. Add a border to your front card and your back card, using the .back and .front styles border-color:black; border-style: solid;

There are a number of border styles: dotted, solid, double, dashed to choose from

  1. Finally, If you would like to, add a 'Card Game Title' to the backs of your cards. You might think this means you have to write it over and over again, but no. All you do is add this style: .front:after { content: "Cat Memory Game"; font-family:verdana; color:white; font-size:15px; }

By using 'after' we're telling the CSS to put this text after everything else already in that container. There is also .before for the opposite.

If you get stuck, or want to see the finished project for this week - you can look at the code for next week's template :)
