Announcement: CUNY Service Corps Opportunity

Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) was selected by CUNY to launch the CUNY Service Corps on this campus, and we need your help to show that our students need this opportunity. Through the CUNY Service Corps program, selected students will be employed part-time for fall 2013 and spring 2014 semesters, be paid about $12.00 per hour to work for a non-profit agency, gain professional experience, and help our city – all while earning their degree. To participate in the program, by the end of this spring 2013 semester, students must have a GPA of at least 2.50; earned 24 credits; will register full-time for 2013-2014 academic year at BMCC and be able to legally work in the US.
Interested students must complete the RSVP form and reserve a space in an information session by visiting If students are unable to attend one of the workshops, please inform them to contact Kimberly Chu at, and she will schedule a convenient time for them to meet with her.

iOS Development Course

This is just an FYI announcement unrelated to work for our class.

If you’re interested in learning to create apps for iOS you may want to check out this course, It’s normally $950 but they are offering free scholarships: “Our full tuition scholarships are for students who are passionate about pursuing a career in technology, demonstrate financial need, or fall within the following underrepresented demographics: Women, Public Universities and Community Colleges, underrepresented Minorities and Immigrants.”

Due Date Changed for Assignment #4

The due date is now Friday, March 22.

This is to give you a bit more time to complete it, but still finish it before break.

On Thursday we will move on to spend time talking about your first major project which is to create a custom WP theme. I want you thinking about this project over break and not assignment #4.

A reminder that Spring break means we won’t meet next week or the Tuesday after that. So we meet Thursday this week, 3/19 and then don’t meet again until Thursday 4/4.

See you on Thursday.

Blackboard is Available

Hi Class,

I apologize. I didn’t click the button to make Blackboard available to you. It is now. So you can turn in Assignment #3 there and future assignments as well.
