Assigned: Tuesday, November 9, 2010
Due: Tuesday, November 23, 2010 before midnight
Group Assignment - You are permitted to work with your project group partner.

The goal of this assignment is to start working towards the final project (Project 7), a webpage that provides searchable access to a personal media collection (CDs, MP3s, DVDs, etc.).

Setting Up

  1. Create a new directory under ~/public_html/cs312/ for this project
    • chmod 755 ~/public_html/cs312/new directory name
  2. Create three files in the new directory, an HTML file, a CSS file, and a JavaScript file.
  3. Make sure that the directory and file permissions allow anyone to view the files.


The next few projects will build upon each other to produce a webpage that provides searchable access to a personal media collection. The type of media (CDs, MP3s, DVDs) is up to you and your project partner. The website should be tailored to the type of media you will be storing, so you should make that decision now.
