Re: Where did the blind programming site go?: was: programming tutorials

Definitely no deficiency, but it requires Jamal to handle putting all the content online himself. Same for Elf with his site. This way the community can directly effect the site's content, which will probably lead to more relevant and up to date information. Swell idea, I think.

It sounds like it does all the things people want.
Or is there a deficiency?

I will talk to  the people who can say yes but I think APH will give blind
programming a permanent home if people think it's a good idea.  We could run
the email list from there in fact we could run multiple and we could have a
droople page where everything is kept. The same people that work on it now
could do what little they can do an we could all share the responsibility.

I think it's the only way to go, Ken. Drupal is powerful enough to
host anything from a simple website to a large online community,
accessible both in terms of its administration&  useability,&  is
perfectly suited for something like this.

I've partnered w/a web developer friend of Mine, Elise Lonsdale,&
used drupal to make
http://jawsscripting.lonsdalemedia.org
We've found it to be a rewarding venture in terms of the way Drupal
works. It does have somewhat of a steep learning curve initially, but
I think that's the same w/all web development. Elise says it's a lot
easier than other CMS's she's worked with. My vote is, if u can get
it, we should do it.

I don't understand why we don't get a droople page set up.  If people are
interested I will talk to APH about hosting a true droople site for blind
programmers. I would end up being the one choosing editors so I could let
any number of you guys edit the page.  It would be done with the simple
wiki
language and would be easy to use.

What do you all think?

alright, sounds great, as I said in my post, I would do the work, but my
time is getting squeezed out of existence, adding one page link will be no
trouble, its the maintenance and such that would wring me out.

I'll send you a blanked body page so all the color and other stuff matches
the site, and you just fill in the body, I usually use H2 headers for a
section like changing from the C section to the C++ one, and h3 for sub
divisions within a section myself, but as long as it's navagateable its
great.

Hello, Elf,

I would be willing to write the page.  I can send it to you and you
could link it to your site.  I don't have website hosting at the
moment or I'd do it.  It would make much more sense to place it in a
frequented site like yours or the blind developers' site though.

Could structure it by giving each language a heading with links to the
corresponding tutorials in an unordered list.  Make it quick to
navigate that way.  Would also make sense to link any editors, ide's
and compilers within it as well so it's a one-stop experience.  I
think this would make for a flexible format because if someone wants
to let us know about a link to tutorials for a language we don't have,
all we have to do is add a heading for it

Any thoughts?

Alex M
ps  There's another Alex out here somewhere.  Figured I'd sign with my
last initial to keep confusion to a minimum.

Blindprogramming.com seems like it's dead. This thread about tutorials
&  stuff is good, but it remains on this list. Any possibility we can
get a wiki or something in which to store this info?
