==== Class for 2016-06-27: back-end web development ====
 +
This class is all about the seedy underbelly of web development: the backend! It is tailored toward front-end developers wanting to get a taste of how things come together on the server. We'll talk about PHP, then Express.js, then Rails.
 +
 +
During the recap period, we will set up your computers. But it's best to do this before arriving if possible. Here are the steps used for class preparation:
 +
 +
----
 +
 +
===== THE EASIEST WAY =====
 +
Come to the class in person and get the USB stick from Jeffrey. Then follow the below "easy" steps without having to download anything.
 +
 +
===== THE EASY WAY =====
 +
If you would like to follow along, the easiest option is to run a virtual machine.
 +
* Install [https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads VirtualBox AND the Extension Pack]
 +
* [http://jeffreyatw.com/static/frontend/Ubuntu.ova Download this preconfigured Ubuntu virtual machine (2.89GB)]
 +
* Double-click the .ova file. You should check the "reinitialize the MAC address" step.
 +
* Start the machine after installation and you're all set!
 +
* System username and password are both "'''front-end'''". Feel free to change them if that's uncomfortable.
 +
 +
===== THE HARDER WAY =====
 +
If you don't want to use a virtual machine, or would like to set your computer up for further work on your own.
 +
 +
====== Linux ======
 +
* To set up Node.js installation, run:
 +
** <code>curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash -</code>
 +
* Install required packages: <code>sudo apt-get install -y nodejs lamp-server^ ruby ruby-dev zlib1g-dev libsqlite3-dev</code>
 +
** (Press Enter at any prompts.)
 +
* Install Express: <code>sudo npm install -g express-generator</code>
 +
* Install Rails: <code>sudo gem install rails</code>
 +
 +
====== OS X ======
 +
* Upgrade to at least OS X 10.9, preferably the latest (currently 10.11 El Capitan).
 +
* Install the Xcode developer tools:
 +
** <code>xcode-select --install</code>
 +
* For Node.JS:
 +
** Install Node.JS: http://nodejs.org/
 +
** Install Express: <code>npm install -g express-generator</code>
 +
* To install Rails, run:
 +
** <code>sudo gem install rails</code>
 +
* For PHP, install MAMP: http://www.mamp.info/en/index.html
 +
 +
====== Windows ======
 +
 +
(I recommend sticking with the aforementioned virtual machine setup, or installing a Linux partition, as it is somewhat difficult to set things up on Windows.)
 +
 +
In all cases where there is a choice, choose 64-bit (x64).
 +
* Install Git for Windows: http://www.git-scm.com/ (all default settings)
 +
* For Node.JS:
 +
** Install Node.JS: http://nodejs.org/ (all default settings)
 +
** Install Express by opening Git Bash and running:
 +
*** <code>npm install -g express-generator</code>
 +
* For Rails:
 +
** Install the latest Ruby from http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads/
 +
*** When installing, choose to "add Ruby executables to your PATH".
 +
** Install the Ruby Development Kit by following these instructions: https://github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/wiki/Development-Kit
 +
** Install Rails by opening Git Bash and running:
 +
*** <code>gem install rails</code>
 +
* For PHP:
 +
** Install the Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679
 +
** Install WampServer: http://www.wampserver.com/en/
 +
 +
===== THE HARDEST WAY =====
 +
Install Node.JS, NPM, Express, Apache, PHP, Ruby, and Rails individually. Good luck!
