Course Content

While most websites have become extraordinarily sophisticated in recent years, with few exceptions they all rely on the same building blocks of HTML (a ‘markup’ language used to structure the contents of a web document), CSS (a way of setting the appearance of structured web content), and, often, JavaScript (a language for writing scripts that allow web users to interact with documents displayed in the browser). With some basic HTML, CSS and JavaScript we can learn to build our own impressive, interactive and accessible websites. This course aims to provide a brief but thorough introduction to each in turn, during which we will design and build a personal website to showcase our skills. Finally, we will see how easy it is today to publish this site on the web for free so that anyone can see it.

The course runs on Wednesday evenings, 6.30-9pm.
