So, just putting it out there, My exams are done and I have finally become a final year student (I can’t wait to graduate and go to work that pays my bills!!!). So what had me busy yesterday? Well, I was doing this student portal for my college. This is the first increment.
I had a few examples projects each very different from the other and poorly documented! I wasn’t even able to differentiate between the redundant lines from the useful ones?? So I dropped all of them and started from scratch. I felt so much more better when I had a blank template to start from (Maybe I am not a full on plagiarist like I thought).
Hostinger: Provides a free sub-domain and other hosting things with good data upload rate and bandwidth.
Bootstrap: The page is responsive as far as I have tested out using F12!
PHP: If you noticed JS is client side and the logic can be seen in the client browser. Now if I ended up using JS to access my DB which is supposedly having sensitive information then well that’s just bad! So I used PHP and it’s usual accompaniment MySQL.
WAMP: Personal server on my desktop for faster results on minor changes.
SASS: That’s just a super powered CSS code. I used it to beautify my 2-page site using variables and functions instead of the kinda unchangeable CSS code.
A login page: That asks for your register number and password
RegNo: 311113104001 , 311114205703 , 311115106043 , 311113105303 , 311114114705
(Why these numbers well our reg no has a few inherent details that can be derived from it!! Like the firstRegNo. is a person who entered on 2013 and will leave in 2017 belongs to CSE dept and is a normal student who started college after finishing their schooling or other studies. This kinda cuts down the size of my table on the server. How do I get these info? Well, that’s where PHP comes in! I’ll do that on another day)
Password : licet@123
Well, the logged-in page is a bit informal since well I am a bit informal. I will update it with more formal stuff after giving it to my professors?
