Topics we'll cover:

• What's the difference between web development and web design?

• Where are web site files generally stored?

• What is the difference between a client and a server?

• What do you need to know before building a web site? What language should you use and what are the differences?

• What tools do you need to develop a web site?

• Who does what on a typical web development team?

• What is Web 2.0 and the Cloud?
