Mini Web Application Coding Challenge For Programmers by Seun(m): 9:20pm On Mar 23, 2012
You've been hired to teach Computer Appreciation at a local Secondary school for one term. During that term, you're expected to give the students 2 tests (15 marks each), one practical project(10 marks) and 1 exam (100 marks to be scaled down to 60 marks).

Write a secure single user mini web application that you can use to enter each student's name and raw scores, calculate each student's total score for the term (a percentage), determine the position of each student in the class, and calculate the average score for males & females in the class.

- Use mercurial, git or subversion for source control and post your solution on git/bitbucket/google-code!!
- Write the application in any programming language or web framework of your choice (except maybe PHP?)

Try Python and CherryPy. Or C#, Mono and ASP.NET. Or Groovy/Grails, Java/Servlets.

@seun,

if your school is looking for an educational interface as you described. To help teachers manage their day to day curriculum, grade students, calculate scores in a very flexible way, post test scores and exam grades online. My team is working on such interface which we intend to offer Nigerian secondary schools for free for 2 years. Students can also login to check test/exam scores, read announcements, submit homeworks and stuffs like that.

PHP is alright, but it might be more fun to try Python, Ruby, Scala, Clojure, Groovy, C#, Go, etc!
Re: Mini Web Application Coding Challenge For Programmers by chuksme(m): 12:18am On Mar 24, 2012
I can do that very well with Excel application software.
Re: Mini Web Application Coding Challenge For Programmers by manny4life(m): 1:40am On Mar 24, 2012
All of you who keep saying that you can do it in Excel, yes we can all do it in Excel but Seun specifically said " Programming", I believe he did not stumble on his words.

BTW, I know this is not the right place to ask but since yall said about programming, I might as well go ahead and ask. Over the weeks, my work had become more challenging and chaotic (more advanced analytics, per se), so I decided that Excel wasn't helping that much in retrieving data, and I decided to use Access. Unfortunately, I used Access in college to the the intermediate knowledge, but never in-depth; therefore, I'm stuck. Question is, I'm looking at going through a "Database Specialist" certification program which includes classes in SQL, Software Design, PL/SQL Programming, and Data Modelling and Design. etc.

To be honest, I'm seriously confused because I really don't know what route to take. I wish I had done Programming when I had the opportunity to do so. Before you ask, before I become more discombobulated than I am now, I need my own Access Database where I can export detailed analytic that can be retrieved at convenience by my bosses. Oh this database will be hosted in a highly secured network environment which makes it easier for all access. Please, if you have any advice for me, now is the time.

My professor has been trying to push haskell in class, but I feel it's worse than rails. If I'm gonna do this, I'll consider js.
Re: Mini Web Application Coding Challenge For Programmers by AZeD1(m): 7:18pm On Mar 24, 2012
Seun i'd like to work on the app, but i can only do it in php/vb.net. How about i do a class in python that simulates(python console) the problem?

My company has a multi featured desktop application based on Access database (forms and reports) that does a lot more than what u requested. Its currently being ported to Postgres and Java servlets. An evaluation of its functions on the desktop version is currently under testing by a state university. When the web version is completed, a demo version shall be offered to all educational institutions by my company.

Wow, that's a very unexpected platform. But kudos to you for doing something that mostly works.
