Opportunity for an Independent Study

Botanic Garden

This is a proposal for an Independent Study to all returning CS majors (this is a repeat of a post from a couple months ago).
—-
My name is Polly Ryan-Lane and I am staff at the Botanic Garden. One of my responsibilities here is to publish images I take of the plant collection to our website. This portion of our site is dynamically powered by PHP and MySQL.

I have a few tweaks that I’d like done to the┬ápresent script so that the functionality it was intended to have works properly. In addition to the PHP script modifications, I would also like to add more attributes to the existing MySQL database. I was wondering if any Computer Science Majors would like to help me with this?

I am also interested in learning how to do these modifications myself. So, if there is going to be a PHP/MySQL course taught at some point I’d like to know about it…or perhaps a student would be interested in giving me some instruction?

Also, I am considering moving over to a Drupal platform and I was wondering if some students might be interested in taking on that project as an independent study?

(please contact Polly Ryan-Lane directly if interested: pryan@smith.edu)
