Introduction to Web Development
6 Mondays and Thursdays
June 19th – July 31st (No class on July 3rd)
This course introduces these three basic Web Standards to anyone (the only requirement is the ability to type) and shows how even the most complicated web sites are all built on these simple building blocks.
In this course you will learn:
- HTML, the “structure and content” of web pages
- CSS, the “style” of web pages (colors, fonts, etc)
Basic – Intermediate Computer Skills
Monday and Thursday 5:30 – 7:30 PM
Introduction & HTML/CSS
Debugging, Tools and Testing
Since almost all companies require some kind of web presence, learning web standards opens up many possible careers. You could choose to specialize in “front end development”, or you could also learn about databases and web servers and become a “full stack developer”, someone who can build an entire web application by themselves. You could learn the LAMP stack and develop for the 26%+ of the web that is built on WordPress or Drupal, or you could specialise in “mobile web apps”, focused on delivering a streamlined app that works well on small screens with touch-based interfaces.
Almost all of these opportunities require some additional training and experience, but learning web standards is a great start that can lead in many directions.
