    @dzuelke @edwardhorsford Nice, thanks - I’ll try it out.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @eliothill Oh yes, only going to end soon. Hey ho.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @phl Ha, yes, maybe, thanks. I wonder if any of the students know about that…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @tomp Maybe if there was a second week, but trying to cover HTML, CSS and JS in four days is quite a push as it is.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @yoz Yeah, npm so isn't happening.

    @migurski This week well spend Monday on HTML, CSS and JavaScript and the rest of the week on version control and deployment.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @migurski @blech Oh yeah, I forgot about FTP-client S3 access. I just think of the web UI and… ugh.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @tomp Apart from understanding git.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Also, suggestions for neocities.org, and potentially interesting: twitter.com/edwardhorsford…

    @philgyford Deployed to heroku via dropbox. No command line needed. test-apper.herokuapp.com (though you do need one extra php file)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @edwardhorsford Oh, interesting, thanks!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @hotdogsladies Yeah! You have to Tumblr to get these things out of your head.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Lots of suggestions for a public Dropbox folder. Or Amazon S3 (a bit complicated to me…). Or nearlyfreespeech.net Thanks folks.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @holgate Oh, interesting, ta.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @futuraprime Yeah, that would be a good proper solution, thanks… but I’m only here temporarily so a bit much for me to manage I think.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @mikeecb Really… they’ve had to take in *so* *much* *stuff* already. Explaining git, and what can go wrong… way too much.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    I think this is symptomatic of how complicated making a really simple website is these days. “Just learn git [as well as EVERYTHING ELSE]!”

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @jonty That’s like cvs isn’t it?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    To anyone suggesting GitHub pages… great, thanks, except teaching all of HTML & CSS & JavaScript *AND* git in four days is pushing it.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @futuraprime And I’d need to explain git.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @jonty Now I need to explain git…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Any thoughts on simplest, cheapest way for students to put their static html pages online? I can only think of using, eg, godaddy hosting.

    When computers design things, they look very different.
