Intro to Web Development: Building a Dynamic Website From Scratch

This course is unfortunately closed.

This course is intended for those who have never touched an HTML file in their life, however as the course progresses it will gradually get more advanced and therefore could be useful to you in the future even if you know a lot about Web Development.

The approach that this class will take towards teaching you web development is not very common. Usually when trying to learn how to build a website tutorials are segregated into specific languages, i.e. Learn HTML, Learn CSS, Javascript, etc. While those types of tutorials can teach you a ton of information (and is the way that I personally learned), they also seem very disconnected from an actual product that could be made from those languages as a collective.

The purpose of this course is simple, I was already going to make a website; and through the process of doing so I will go over each individual part and try to explain it as in depth as I have time to. This will range from the basics of "What is a website?" and how to program basic HTML/CSS all the way to creating a web app with Ruby on Rails / Batman.js with many other languages in between.

Lectures
  1. The Basics

    I will try to keep these brief and entertaining, but please read them even if you think you know the topic.

Prerequisites

This class is intended for those who have absolutely no experience in building websites. As this course progresses it will gradually get more advanced and therefore may be useful if you are looking for a specific topic.

Syllabus

Class Schedule Since this is going to be an ongoing project I am not sure how many total lessons there will be or how often they will arrive. I can give an estimate of at least one new lesson per week, sometimes more and sometimes I might not have enough time to do one. Check our class page (/r/gamegenome) and our twitter(twitter.com/thegamegenome) for updates.

Additional information
Teacher qualifications

I have built websites for about 7 years. I started in high school building basic html sites with Dreamweaver and Front Page Express. Gradually I got more advanced and started two community fan sites for video games using PhP content management systems (Joomla and Drupal). Those sites were WAR-RvR.net and DCUOSource.com.

After those two sites I went to study web development at the Art Institute of Portland. There I learned Ruby on Rails and advanced Javascript, leaving school two years early to take up a job offer at We the Media in Portland Oregon (which was 9 months ago from this post date). Currently I am working on several projects which includes the Winforever.com website and application, along with developing apps for our enterprise social network, Opal (http://workwithopal.com/).
