We'll be taking a nuts and bolts approach to learn about the fundamentals of what it takes to make a modern app work. By gradually building up the code for the components we'll understand why we do certain things that we often take for granted by just adding in a JavaScript library or frame work. Along the way we'll be taking a close look at the HTML, CSS, JavaScript, data behind the scenes.

We won't be digging into specific frameworks or libraries.

This will be hands-on so you are encouraged to bring your laptop.

You will need:

• The source code for the lab, either download this zip:

• Or clone the GitHub repository:

• A web browser, I've tested: Chrome, Firefox and IE9 or later

• A text editor, I've used Notepad++, Vim and Visual Studio Code.

Please download all the resources ahead of time since the location may not have internet and so that we can utilize our time effectively. Thanks!
