Introduction to Programming - Writing Your Program

In the video Writing Your Program, about 1min in the video, he changes to TextMate, and already has some source code in, and that is somehow linked to the console. So I have no clue of how to get that or how to connect the to to each other, and I use TextWrangler.

Hi Frederik,

This old post may help you out. If not, you basically need to create a new folder on your computer. Then inside that, you'll want to create an HTML file called "index.html" with the content that Jim has in the video at 0:55. You can then open that file with Google Chrome and you should see "Introduction To Programming" in your browser, just as Jim has. That will get you up to the same stage as Jim. Then follow the rest of the video.

I recommend you learn some (or some more) HTML before you attempt this course. It assumes you understand the basic structure of a website, and how all the files work together.

Hope this helps :)
