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:
Who should take this:
Anyone who wants to build a website but doesn't know where to begin - or even what questions to ask! You should have a sound working knowledge of either a PC or Mac.
