Making websites (from scratch)
-- This class is now pretty much closed because we're far enough that it would be difficult to jump in. If you still want to join, give me a call 609-462-2535. --
These days everyone can publish content online using blogging or content management software and services such as Blogger, Wordpress or Drupal. However I'm not too interested in teaching about using software or services that are always subject to change. My goal is to empower you to understand how websites work, and to put core concepts into practice.
This course will cover (or uncover) how to make a website from the ground up!
There will be three main components:
1) Overview of how websites (and the internet) work
2) Designing your own site using photoshop
I realize that things can change, and if we want to follow a different direction that's OK with me.
No experience required for this course. If you are scared of photoshop or words like xhtml, but have always wanted to know how to design and code a website, this course is for you! Even if you have some experience, you might still learn something.
Computers will be provided. Just bring yourself!

I've been the lead web designer at the KidWind Project for 3 years. I also briefly worked for a web design company, and have done some freelance work as well. While web design is not really my career path, I think knowing how to make websites is useful, and want to share what I know.
