We will walk through the fundamentals of web development in layperson's terms. While we won't be writing code, we'll take you through various components of the web and how they work together.
This class is really beneficial for any language you want to study more because it explains how and why the computer knows which website to pull and what to pull from the database to display on the screen. It's also really great for interviews because "how would you explain how the web works?" is a really popular question.
Bring a notepad, tablet or laptop to take notes. Bring your questions!
Lunch will be provided.
