Introduction to Web Concepts

  • Mar 10, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Not sure what web development means?

Want to build a cool website, but can’t decide what language to use?

Tired of techies throwing around acronyms that make your head spin?

In this class, we will walk through the fundamentals of web development in layman terms. We won't be writing code, this is intended as a lecture to take you through various components of the web and how they work together.

Cost: $20

Date: Wednesday, March 10, 6:30–8:30 p.m.

Location: Cerner Innovation Campus: Earhart Room

10236 Marion Park Drive, Kansas City, MO .

Pizza and soda will be sponsored by Cerner

If you want to learn how to communicate better with your technical team or friends, this course is for you. Topics include but are not limited to:

• What is a web stack?

• What's the difference between web development and web design?

• Where are web site files generally stored? 

• What is the difference between a client and a server? Which programming languages are compiled on a server and which are compiled in a web browser? 

• What do you need to know before building a web site? What language should you use and what are the differences? 

• What tools do you need to develop a web site? 

• Who does what on a typical web development team? 

• What is the Cloud?

This class is for people with little to no technical experience. Bring a notepad, tablet or laptop to take notes and come prepared with questions.

We want to thank Cerner for supporting Girl Develop It by allowing us to use its facilities and sponsoring  Pizza and Soda!

    The email notification I got said 6:30, but once I clicked on it, the time said 5:30...I work until six, so which is correct? Thanks.

      It may just be something to do with app update. Thanks for the clarification!
