Welcome to Study Group 13 (SG13) ^_^
We are a group of people – mostly students – who are self-learners. We share the study materials (obviously online materials), help each other in debugging our codes, and give advice regarding programming or studying problems.
Q: What programming languages will be studied?
A: PHP and MYSQL. C++ can be added if some members are interested.
Q: Will we study all of them?
A: No, you pick the language(s) you want to learn.
Q: How will we study?
A: To make the answer organized, I’ll divide it into steps:
1) Pick the language(s) that you want to learn and the language(s) you can help others with – help them in debugging
2) Specify your current level in the programming language(s) you want to learn or help others with:
a. Starter: I’m a new user of this language
b. Beginner: I can write/ deal with simple to average functions, classes, etc.. and can create small projects
c. Intermediate: I can write/ deal with complicated functions, classes, etc.. and can create big projects.
d. Advanced: This language is like drinking water for me.
3) Mention the resources you’ll use in your studies; this will benefit the group and Daniweb members. Although “offline” materials, such as textbooks, can’t be shared, however, sharing the textbook’s (title + a brief opinion about it) will be useful. Maybe there is someone who is thinking of buying one.
4) Set a table for your studying. You don’t have to post your table in the forum
5) Start studying using any studying method you feel comfortable with
6) If you face any troubles with your code/ study, post a new thread in the correct place with a title: “SG13_ name your problem”. For example, you have a problem in a PHP code. Post your problem in Web Development > PHP. One of SG13 members who have experience with PHP or is studying it may respond to you. If no one of SG13 know the answer, hopefully any member in Daniweb will be willing to help.
7) You stop studying when you reach the level you want in the language. For example, if you’re a beginner in MYSQL and become an intermediate, you can stop or continue; it depends on what you want.
1) Daniweb rules definitely apply to us
2) Any member of Daniweb is welcome help us since, as I mentioned before, most of us are students
3) I think we must help non-SG13 members too. Debugging other people’s codes expands your way of thinking – that’s just a personal opinion =)
Any questions, comments, or suggestions are welcome.
