Nate Cooper, author and teacher
The class is designed to help right-brained professionals with a need to learn web basics answer questions like “What is hosting?”. Anyone transitioning from a design job to a web job or business professionals who want to speak a common language with technical colleagues are also welcome. Get started building that website you’ve had on the backburner. Learn concepts like front-end vs. back-end development, HTML/CSS and how to set up a Wordpress website.
Beginner/intermediate. This class assumes the student knows what a website is but nothing more. We will look at some basic HTML/CSS tags so the student should be comfortable at least looking at code and beginning to understand it.
Students are not expected to follow along but might want to take notes during the class. We will be discussing software needed to build a site during the class. If students want to get a jump and can keep up with the pace of the material they are welcome to follow along with the HTML/CSS tutorial if they have a text editor installed on their computer prior to class. Recommended free editors: Mac Text Wrangler, Windows Notepad++. Please note, that the class moves swiftly and students should only attempt to follow along if they are comfortable working on their own.
