WEEKLY NEWSLETTER 12 - 17 JUNE 2017

Hello and Welcome,

Meetings This Week:

Programming - Tuesday 13th Jun - 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Come and show your projects, and see some others. We have a computer with a projector, so bring along picture files of your project and we'll project them on the wall. We have a broadband internet connection, so discussion can be wide ranging.

The next meeting will be on Tuesday June 13 at 6pm. We'll see some new microprocessor applications and programming examples.

Past meetings:

2017

At the May meeting Anthony reviewed the techniques of editing a website. He discussed web page layout, the historical use of HTML, and the move to separate structure from presentation by using CSS.

He demonstrated source code version control, using the revision control tool Git, and the online repository Bitbucket. Future presentations will cover web site configuration and optimisation.

Neville Hoffman

Web Design - Saturday 17th Jun - 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Our Web Design meeting will be on Saturday, the 17th June. Last month we looked at SVG and how to draw graphics for the web.

This month we will look at Canvas and how to draw in html. Canvas is a tag in html and creates a blank area on which the web builder can draw anything — text, lines, shapes and images.

Unlike SVG, Canvas does not stand alone. A browser will read a full SVG file on its own but Canvas must remain part of the html document. This month we will have a look at some of the articles on Canvas and try a few examples to see what uses we can make of the Canvas tag.

For those who like to use graphic website builders, we will examine Mobirise, a new no-code web builder. It is a standalone program which allows you to create sites using inbuilt themes and extensions.

Once your site is ready, it will publish the site either to a folder or to your own site via ftp. If you need to update the site, the Mobirise ftp will allow you to only upload your changes.
