Introducing Coursework 2

Whereas Coursework 1 was a client-side exercise, requiring only the use of JavaScript, with some minor HTML. The class created their own versions of a game based on Paper Toss.

Coursework 2, on the other hand, is a server-side exercise, requiring programming across a variety of languages: PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Naturally, PHP and MySQL are the focus.


This is an informal list of requirements of Coursework 2.

  1. Modify the JavaScript game created for Coursework 1 to supply a score to the player.
  2. Install XAMPP to have a suitable development environment. (Already done).
  3. Create a PHP, Apache, and MySQL-based web application where users have to log in (or are given the option to create a new user account).
  4. The web application will contain the game. Logged in users can play the game, and be given a score.
  5. Logged in users will be able to view high scores of other players, and see how they compare.

To allow you to easily follow development, all posts under this exercise will be tagged with the Coursework 2 label.
