1. Point A to Point B: Getting Your Data on the Webserver
There are several methods of updating information and data on a webserver. We must consider who performs those updates upfront when we design the website.
a) Research three methods for updating webserver data.
b) Under what circumstances would each of these three methods be appropriate/not recommended?
c) Do any of these methods involve additional training or system configuration for the person performing the updates?
d) Which methods require coding/HTML scripting experience/training? Are any methods appropriate for non-technical people?
e) Some methods are more secure than others are; elaborate.
f) What is the best method for updating information on our current webserver/website?
2. Generational Languages
As more and more programming languages are developed for various purposes, the industry has learned how to categorize languages based upon their features, abilities, and power. These categories are called “Generations.”
a) Research the current Generational Languages (GL) model. Where does Python fall within that model? Why?
b) Choose two other languages within your industry. Determine where they fall within the model and why.
c) Based upon your research, do ALL programming languages fit within the GL model? Why? Should it be expanded? What would be your recommendations?
