Web Design Concepts & Development (CACE 7110)
Start Date: 9/25/2017Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 9/25/2017End Time: 8:30 PM

Event Description

Through this flexible, part-time program, you will learn to build a basic, yet unique and dynamic, website that will gather content from the API (application program interface) of your favorite website (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) using various components of front-end web development—core technologies that make up the web, including HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

You will observe how web designers/developers tackle situations in the modern and professional world in primarily lab-based lectures. The coursework during these labs will lead up to a cumulative final project that will be built upon the knowledge you gain each week.

Through the completion of labs, the class will provide a “crash course” style of learning. By laying down various fundamentals, you should be able to get a broad view of front-end web development in a professional setting. You will be expected to reach beyond the lessons of the class and be comfortable researching and learning new technologies, as the field is ever changing. The lessons presented in each area should be a platform on which for you to grow. By the end of the 10 weeks, you will have a strong familiarity with HTML and CSS, a fundamental understanding of Javascript and jQuery, and knowledge of general data handling in the form of JSON and APIs.
