Intro to Web Concepts Workshop

Not sure what web development means?

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

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: $15

Date: Thursday,  March 6th 2014

Location: Corvisa Services, 1610 North 2nd Street #101, Milwaukee, WI 53212, Milwaukee, WI.

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 Web 2.0 and 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.

    • Erin W.

      50% of the money goes to the teacher, the other 50% goes back into the GDI funds for scholarships, books, perks for TAs, swag, special events and speakers. I will be putting 100% of the money back into the chapter for the first few workshops & classes in order to have funds available for future scholarships.
