"Fundamentals of Web Design" workshop

Before you start designing websites, it's best to understand the technologies that make the web work and what acronyms like HTML, FTP, and CSS mean! This workshop, taught by Doug Wray, will introduce you everything you need to think about BEFORE you begin designing a site. Staring right will save you hours of time and trouble later!

We'll talk about information architecture - what should go where and why. We'll discuss how to keep your site from turning into a birds' nest of folders and hard-to-decipher files. You'll learn about hosting and maintenance along with user support from the design phase up to helping your users take over a site after you've built it.

This workshop will cover:

FTP and why it should be the first tool in your web developer toolboxHTML basics and the building blocks of a web pageCascading Style Sheets (CSS) and how they control the presentation of HTMLJavascript and its role in user interactionFlash and what role it plays in presentation, interaction and the ups and downs of using itVery general intro to server-side programming such as PHP or Ruby on Rails for dynamic pagesContent Management Systems vs. static sitesWho Should Take This:
