Java University in Atlanta, Georgia, USA

I had a fun day teaching a Web 2.0 course in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, to 40 students. It was my updated material:

Note, to download the new slides and lab file, click here.

1. JavaServer Faces (JSF) module went excellent! The slides were smooth, the code samples effective, and the demo worked fine. The new part on localization was great. We, the students and I, I typing, the students guiding me, added the Japanese language to the sample application in about 10 minutes.
\* This was very successful.
\* I need to update the slides to answer a few student questions.
\* For teaching in India, I need to add labs, example a localization lab.

2. New Web 2.0 module was OK. The focus is community interactive application features. I demoed my YouTube.com/tigerfarm and Flickr.com/photos/tigerfarm member accounts.
\* This was fun.
\* I need to update the slides, and make the material more focused. And add slides on the topic: Implementing Web 2.0 applications inside a corporate network.

3. In the Ajax module, I reduced the amount of time spent on the slides, and increased the demo application time. The students help make this an interactive learning experience. At one point, they guided me with specification to improve one of the demos, and I made changes to the JavaScript and the cascading style sheet (CSS), and then we tested the changes.
\* The exercises were successful.
\* I need to make slide from the material I taught - make the spoken material into slides. I need to fix the lab configuration in the demo that uses Ajax to retrieve data from a database for scrolling in the browser.
\* For teaching in India, I need to add labs, example a CSS lab to modify the fish tank to red when moving the fish around.

4. New jMaki module has a few slides, some demos, and some coding.
\* The slides and demo went fine.
\* I need to add some more slide material, and make focused demos and labs.
\* For teaching in India, I need to add labs, example create a web page with a number of widgets.
\* Click here to download the slides in PDF.

All in all, it went well, and I was given good feedback from the students. To the students, I say, Thank You!
