Today, we continue our march through Code.org's first course by using our creativity plus computational thinking to create a story.
Create a Story - Code.org, Course 1, Stage 16
Time permitting, we'll try to finish the course with Stage 18's artist loops.
Artist Loops - Code.org, Course 1, Stage 18
As before, our mentors will throw names into a hat, and pair-up the students. One student drives and one navigates. After each step, the students switch roles and work through the same step with a different Chrome user. Then move on to the next step.
As before, students work in pairs. One drives and one navigates. After each card, the students switch roles and work through the same card using their own database (via the
USE command we discussed in last week's dojo). Then move on to the next card.
Below are some MySQL commands that may come in handy today.
MySQL includes a program called
mysqldump to create backups. It dumps the content of your database into a backup file.
Shellbutton on the XAMPP Control Panel to launch the shell.
mysqldump -u root Spongebob > Spongebob.sql. (Don't be silly, replace
Spongebobwith the name of your database!)
To restore a database, we create a new database, then load it with the backup
.sql file we created. This backup file is just a list of SQL commands (just like the ones we type in MySQL monitor).
mysql -u root.
create database Spongebob;.
