What You'll Learn

Front-end web developers use HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to build the web that users see. In this crash course our Front End instructor Eric Sowell (http://www.meetup.com/The-Iron-Yard-Dallas/members/14565188/) will discuss these technologies with the goal of explaining several things. First, each of these has their own unique role in web development, so we'll try to make it clear how each one contributes to building the web. Second, we hope you will come away with a better understanding of what a web developer does and does not do. Third, we hope to give you a better understanding of how the web works. Finally, we'll talk about The Iron Yard and how our front-end engineering course (https://www.theironyard.com/courses/javascript-and-mvc-frameworks.html) can help you become a front-end web developer. Come with your questions or feel free to post them below.
