Intro to Web Concepts
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 the web 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: Tuesday, January 16th, 6:00–8:00 p.m. 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. If you want to learn how to communicate better with your technical team or friends, this course is for you. Topics include: • What is a web stack? • What's the difference between web development and web design? • 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 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? *No shows: your course fee will be donated to the chapter scholarship fund.* Instructor: Jenn Holz **Please be sure to read our Code of Conduct ( before attending. We take this seriously and will ask you to leave if we feel you are not withholding the standards of GDI.
