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 will introduce you to everything you need to think about BEFORE you begin designing a site. Starting 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 toolbox
HTML basics and the building blocks of a web page
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and how they control the presentation of HTML
Flash and what role it plays in presentation, interaction, and the ups and downs of using it
Very general intro to server-side programming such as PHP or Ruby on Rails for dynamic pages
Content Management Systems vs. static sites
