How To: Insert data into a MySQL DB using Connector/C++

I created a guide to using MySQL Connector/C++ for a class a while back which showed a not-too-pretty way to put data into a DB, and I created a second part using prepared statements, locking, rollbacks and all that other good stuff – then I never posted it! Well, no more ;)

An introduction to ActionScript 3.0 – week 4 lesson 1

I stopped organising the slides for web publication after week 3 lesson 2 (back in March 2010!) because I just wasn’t seeing any demand, and if no-one’s using them, there was no point in me working on ’em. Apparently at least one person has found the slides useful and asked about any further sets, so I’m happy to put ’em together if they’ll be used.

As you might have worked out from the title slide above, we’re covering variables, constants, arrays and loops and some push/pop stuff – all good, solid first steps to getting fun stuff done w/ AS3 =D

How To: Work with MySQL and Connector/C++

I threw together a set of slides on the topic for a class which was presented today… Thought maybe they’ll be of use to someone else.

If you find anything that needs correcting feel free to let me know and I’ll make any changes as required.

Also, there’ll be a second set of slides posted soon on using prepared statements, rollbacks and enforcing transactional integrity – isn’t life fun? =P

Update: Second part now available here.

ActionScript 3.0: An Introduction to ActionScript 3.0 in Flash CS4 – Week 3

We’re still finding our feet a little here in Week 3 of CUFDIG302A – Author Interactive Sequences, so we’re looking at functions, symbols, instances and the start of using event listeners with functions to control things on the screen.

If you’ve not gone through any of the previous weeks slides and you’re new to coding, then take a step back to and take it order – it’ll really help. Otherwise enjoy!

Oh, and the class has moved from just one 3-hour session per week to a 3-hour session plus a 2-hour session – so expect more updates from now until the end of the course in a couple of weeks time, at which point we might decide to take on some more complex ActionScript for a more involved course…

As usual, the download link to the slides along with some legal gubbins regarding their use is after the break, so jump on in and assert your control!
