Intro to Web Concepts

Not sure how the Internet works?

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 web development in layman terms. While we won’t be writing code, we’ll take you through various components of the web and how they work together. If you want to learn how to communicate better with your technical team or friends or you’re considering a career in technology but don’t know where to begin, this course is for you. Topics include but are not limited to:

What is the World Wide Web? Where are website files generally stored? What is the difference between a client and a server? What do you need to know before building a website? What language should you use and what are the differences? What tools do you need to develop a website? Who does what on a typical web development team?

This class is for people with little to no technical experience.
