Ten Minute Stuff Site

Address:  http://www.wix.com/tenmin10/ten-minute-programming

The particular site presents a Wix presentation titled “Ten Minute Programming: The Heart of Ten Minute Programming Stuff”.  Actually the site itself gives very little attention to Ten Minute Programming.  Supported by WIX development system, this site gives special attention to the presentation of two videos from YouTube.  The videos are:

  • Railroading in Cookeville
  • Circus! Theme Music

The Ten Minute Stuff site takes it’s inspiration from the Ten Minute Programmer Story page.  This short story is the basic tool for presenting the fudamental principles of the Ten Minute Programming approach to incremental programming.  The basic principle of Ten Minute Programming is, “Never write a program that takes more that ten minutes to write.  At least this version of the program.”  Closely associated with this statement if the related statement, “Of course, it may take more than one ten minutes.”

The emphasis is to break a larger software development project into a number of smaller, simoler tasks that can be completed in approximately ten minutes.  Actually, the concept gives even more flexibility when it is admitted that you may take:

  • Ten Minutes to Conceptualize the probles
  • Ten Minutes to Code the program
  • Ten Minutes to Debug the program

I realize that this really works out to thirty minutes but the statement about Ten Minute Programming just seemed to be a bit more appealing.

Jim’s Additional Information Site

This site demonstrates a simple site developed with the support of the Joomla Content Management system.  The articles are based on materials developed by Jim and are intended for demonstration purposes only.

Content management systems give emphasis on the separation of the development of the structure of the site and the content provided on the site.  In essence this provides support for the view of web site development as having two primary development and support elements:

  • Architecture
  • Content

This site provides an example of a web supported on-line relational data base.  The database was developed with the software generation tool ‘PHP Magic Plus’ from ‘Website Databases’.  This generated the HTML code and the server side scriping code in the PHP language.  The database management system used in MySQL.

The application includes four tables with relationships between the tables.  Security and access control for on-line access was implemented with the services of the PHP Magic Plus product.

This application is intended for demonstration purposes only and not for production.

This web site serves as Jim’s Primary Web site and represents a variety of Jim’s interest.  The content here is more stable that many of Jim’s other sites as they are used primarly for testing new concepts or techniques.  Jim’s “About | Contact” information is also located here on the Primary Web Site.  The ‘Other Information’ page of this site gives access, through the use of hyperlinks, to most of the other sites that Jim is using.  Note that these other sites are commonly hosted on additional servers and include quite different features than does WordPress or the Primary Web Site.

See you at the Primary Site.
