Learn About Me

Hi, I'm Pamela Fox. I'm currently an M.S. student in Computer Science at USC. I got started with mashups as a way to procrastinate working on my Operating Systems assignmentlast summer. For more info on me and what I do, check out my weblog.


Learn From Me

As my USC UPE chapter's Activity Director this semester, I've organized a "Wonderful World of Web2.0" workshop series to share web2.0 programming related concepts with fellow students.
The workshops are best understood in person, but the slides may be helpful in getting non-web-programmers started, if only to see what kind of skills you may need.
"HTML/CSS Workshop Notes"
"JavaScript Workshop Notes"
"AJAX Workshop Notes"
[http://www.slideshare.net/wuzziwug/php-workshop-notes
"PHP/SQL Notes"]
...Ruby on Rails Notes to come.


"Borrow" From Me

I have PHP/Python scripts for accessing Flickr, Amazon, Dictionary web services, Rhapsody, Google, YouTube, and more.
I have Flash/ActionScript examples using Kelvin Luck's Flickr wrapper.
I'm happy to email examples for people trying to get started with web APIs.
