Read it carefully, as there will be a quiz about it on We 1/14.
Organizations typically use many disparate technologies that need to communicate and work with each other. A key component to the discipline of Information Technology is the integration of applications and systems. This course examines the various types of scripting languages and their appropriate use for integration of applications and systems. It also addresses the use of scripting languages to facilitate the management, integration and security of the systems that support an organization.
By the end of the course, you should achieve the following learning objectives:
There will be one midterm exam and a final exam.
There will be numerous assignments typically one every week or every two weeks - usually consisting of several programming problems.
Each assignment will have the same weight. 20% will be deducted for each day past the assignments deadline. One day late will result in 80% of the earned grade, two days late will result in 60%, and so on. This also means that no submission will be accepted after 5 working days beyond the deadline (= 7 calendar days, i.e. holidays do not count as working days).
Your final grade will be computed as weighted sum of the following components:
|Portion of the final grade|
|Assignments & Quizzes||40%|
Also, the following restrictions apply:
This means that your grade might be lower that than the average if you miss assignments. (Note: you may end up getting a C even though you have an A average!)
During the semester, there will be numerous assignments and quizzes. While some quizzes will be administered during the lecture time, you will be able to complete others at your leisure time.
Assignments and exams are to be done individually (unless explicitly stated otherwise).
The link for an assignment on this page must be active no earlier than five working days after the deadline. (After all, you don't want to have any disputes about who copied an assignment...)
Copying answers or program code for assignments will not be tolerated. It is your own responsibility to prevent others from seeing and / or copying your work, and to report every incident of cheating. (If you do not report it you risk being accused of cheating yourself.)
Anyone who violates UH student conduct policy (see studentaffairs.manoa.hawaii.edu/policies/conduct_code/system_scc.php, in particular the Section IV PROSCRIBED CONDUCT, B Conduct – Rules and Regulations, 1. Acts of dishonesty) will be reported. Cheaters face disciplinary action, jeopardize their future coursework and risk expulsion from the university. Moreover, cheating is unfair as it causes trouble for innocent classmates whose work has been copied.
Where you will learn all - ok quite a bit - about Scripting Languages
We may even encounter some Frameworks, such as:
