Most of my pupils have projects with the main focus in web and tied to a database table. I have one pupil who wants to build a 4-table relational DB with a simple web front and one pupil who wants to code a game and link it with a simple website. With the last incarnation of AH, most pupils built a website that linked to a DB so this still seems to be the most popular option.
Sadly, I have no idea about when the Scholar materials will be finished 🙁
I’ve not delivered this course before so have nothing to compare it to. One of my students is developing software to manage parents’ evenings so that everyone gets an appointment: SDD and DBD. The other was struggling for ideas so I used the notes in Appendix 15 to AHC to suggest projects on the basis that those were the kind of things they were looking for… he’s currently looking at the SDD WDD recipe manager idea (p167).
