Want to learn how to code but not sure where to start?
Tired of techies throwing around acronyms that make your head spin?
If you are a complete beginner to coding and/or want to learn how to communicate better with your technical team/friends, this workshop is for you. In this class, we will walk through the fundamentals of web development in layman terms. While we won't be writing code, we'll take you through various components of the web and how they work together. Topics include but are not limited to:
• What is the World Wide Web?
• 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 Web 2.0 and the Cloud?
This class is for beginners with little to no technical experience. Bring a notepad, tablet or laptop to take notes. Make sure it's charged as we will not have tables. Come prepared with questions for a Q&A at the end.
