If you're interested in a Friday workshop, leave a message in the chatroom. My only available times are 2-3pm or 5-6pm. If nobody responds, I'll just assume you're all doing swell ;) I will be free at this time and coming to help out as well. - Alex

MP2 - Part 2 Deadline Extended till 10/29/10
Hi All, I received a few emails over the weekend where students were having trouble with the assignment. I realize this assignment was a bit more challenging and much less structured. The idea was to give you freedom in implementation as well as encourage you to search for additional resources online. I hope those ambitious goals weren't rubbish and that you didn't struggle too much with the assignment so far, but to be safe, I'm extending the deadline for the assignment till Friday 10/29/10 before 11:59PM. Also remember that you have 5 slip days to allocate among your assignments as you see fit. Between now and Friday, a YouTube video will be posted (uploading now, should be done uploading later tonight) that will guide you through the initial set up of the website layout and I will personally hold a workshop/office hours Wednesday night. Hopefully that will be enough to get you through this assignment. Please feel free to email us or ask us in class if you have an issue. Also if you do email us it certainly helps to include your project files as a .zip. Best, Alex
MP#2 (Part1) Up - due 10/18/2010

Part 1 is Photoshopping a website layout. There is a video tutorial you need to follow that we've uploaded to YouTube.

Mini Project Clarifications
Hi guys, just a couple of clarifications for the mini project: 1. We didn't cover link hover styles today in lecture, so this requirement is now OPTIONAL on the mini project. We'll be covering it next week, but if you would like to incorporate it into your mini project here's a good resource to get you guys started: http://www.echoecho.com/csslinks.htm. 2. We'll be giving you time at the very beginning of next lecture to find "neighbors" to link to in the project. By next Monday, your project should be mostly done with only the link urls missing! 3. If you have any questions, please post them in the website chat room so everyone can see your questions/answers. Also feel free to answer other peoples' questions! If you have a very urgent problem or your chat room message has not been responded to in a couple of days, you may email the staff. Thanks! Amber
Lost Bag of Hello Kitty Stuff
Did someone leave a bag of Hello Kitty stuff? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi All, At this point, everyone should be fully enrolled in Telebears for the class already. By fully enrolled I mean not wait-listed but actually in the class. If this is not so and you filled out and application and were accepted into the course please contact us ASAP at email@example.com. Best, Alex
Web Design DeCal on YouTube
Hi All, I'm pleased to announce that we'll be placing videos of all lectures this semester on YouTube. We're hoping this will be a valuable resource to you and a nice complement to the lecture slides which will be posted before every lecture. The video of the first lecture is not very high quality as our video camera didn't arrive in time. The following lectures should be much better. Our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/webdesigndecal Best, Alex
No class on Monday 9/6 (Labor Day Weekend)
Hey guys, Just to confirm, there is no class this Monday (9/6). Amber
CCNs and Class Accounts Emailed!
Hi All, An email just went out with the course's CCNs and Class Accounts. If you did not receive this email and believe you should have, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Best, Alex
Hi All, Thanks for attending lecture yesterday! It was refreshing seeing a class-full of new faces and getting a chance to meet some of you. We hope you enjoyed lecture and are as excited about learning how to build websites as we are about teaching. Just a few quick updates. We will receive class account forms tomorrow and will hopefully be able to email CCNs and account names then. Also, we will do our best to post lecture slides before class. Yesterday there were some before class preparations that got in the way of uploading the slides. Have a good long weekend!, Alex
First Class: Monday, August 30th
Hi All, I hope everyone had a relaxing summer. The first day of class for the Web Design DeCal is this coming Monday (August 30th). Please only show up if you are on the enrolled list, otherwise students will have to stand and those not on the list will be asked to leave. If you're on the enrolled list you MUST attend the first lecture or you will be DROPPED from the course - no exceptions. Also, please bring your laptops on Monday so we can help you install the course software. If you're currently on the wait-list, we will notify you via email when a spot opens up. See you all on Monday!, Alex
Application Process Over
Hi guys, We've finished going over and accepting applications. We only had 45 available seats and with over 160 applications, we had to make some very tough decisions. We are very sorry to those who we couldn't take into the class, but there will be other opportunities to take this decal in future semesters. Be sure to attend our first class this Monday (8/30) if you're on the enrolled list, or we may drop you. And once again, please let me know ASAP if you have to drop the class so we can make room for the waitlisted people. Here's the enrolled list for those who didn't get an email (in order of application date): Nikhita Singh Olivia Yu Anthony Le Meuy Saephan Alexandr Lints Benjamin Lee Jason Stanley Jessie Wang Hieu Pham Derek Ngai Hyun Joo Sammy Lee Grace Hwang Ryan Suwarsa Annie Tung Lauren Beland Dong Yan Keiko Tanaka Will Chen Rishi Rawat Wei Jiang Jeremy Huang Anna Sorenson Hannah Jensvold Lakshminarasimhan Muralidharan Tom Liao Fang-Kwei Chang Jingna Li Charlie Hsu Margaret Young Kurt Pham Alison Au Omede Firouz Juan Gonzalez Cassie Ettinger Nick Nikbakht David-Ernre Mangir Roxy Darrow Beverly Elithorp Erik Gui Evante Garza-Licundine Cristal Mojica Han Ju Cheng Andrea Brown Poyi Chen Thank you everyone for your patience during the application process!

We Will Notify You Whether You've been Accepted, W
Hi All, I'm getting a lot of emails asking about the status of applications. We intend to have them processed by the end of this weekend. Once we've gone through them, rest-assured we will notify you via email. If we don't respond to your current inquiries, it is simply because it is impractical to do so right now. Best, Alex
Direct Questions to Amber or Jon till Aug. 23rd
Hi All, I'm currently away on business in Asia, as such I have little access to internet and email. Please direct your emails to Amber or Jon in the meantime. I'll be back in the States late Aug. 23rd. Best, Alex
Mondays 7-9PM @ 200 Dai
Hi All, The course has been scheduled for Mondays 7-9PM @ 200 Dai (the Mac lab next to Pete's). We will schedule an optional discussion section later in the semester once we get an idea of your schedules. Best, Alex
Hey guys, The application process was kind of confusing, so we've posted new directions. You need to create an application AND fill it out. Here are the revised directions: To submit an application, you have to create a new application AND fill out the application. To create a new application, scroll to the bottom of this page and fill out the form with your name and email. Then find your name on the list below, enter in your email address, and click "get application" to see the actual application. You can create an application now to reserve your spot and submit it later. Amber
Make sure to fill out the application!
Hi All, After you create an application, you must also fill it out! Alex
Hi All, We are now taking applications for this course. Please create a new application and then fill it out after authenticating with your email address. You only get to submit once, so please check your answers before submitting. Whoops!: There was a small bug with the application system if you tried to access the system between 3am and 8:40am this morning. The system has been corrected. Sorry for the inconvenience! See you in a few weeks!, Alex
