posted message: We have participants (those who were previously enrolled in a 6 Week "course") and other participants that have recently signed up. This is OK as the intention is to arrange the Study Group so that it is always running and that the knowledge base is always as up to date as possible. Then at any one time, some participants will know more than others depending on their progress through the material so please do not be afraid to ask questions, there is a good chance that someone will answer you. Once followers reach a certain level, they too may wish to participate (or even help organize).
posted message: Since they are no longer confined to "Weeks" I have renamed Weeks 1 to 6 with their present/intended content. Participants who consider that there needs to be other Tasks in addition to these (or that these Tasks should be split into smaller ones) should feel free to add/split them.
posted message: I just had a conversation on Google talk with one participant about the Google sites of participants. At the top of your site, there is a setting for "sharing" (it says "M&I", click on it) so you do not lose access. It is not necessary to use Google Sites unless you want to, you can use any blog or site that you choose.
posted message: After next Wednesday (theoretical end of Week3) we will no longer use the Google Apps as a container for the course. After that date, you will no longer be able to use the p2pu.umust.be login, so if there is any material that you want from the site, please make a copy of it before then. Some people may like to transfer some things as new Tasks eg Andre Dublins patterns material.
posted message: I think the task of week2 was quite hard to accomplish and all the concepts of functions, objects, closures, this keyword and object inheritance are still new for us. Therefore maybe it would good if we could practise that a bit more. Personally, I think the practical/programming homework tasks were easy while the theoretical ones were really hard. @selfstudier, maybe you could provide the course with practical exercises regarding the above concepts? That would be really great and appreciated!
