About this event

**Newbie Friendly** This class is for people with little to no technical experience.

Not sure how the Internet works?

Want to dip your toes into the tech industry?

Tired of techies throwing around acronyms that make your head spin?

In this class, we will walk through the fundamentals of web development in beginner-friendly terms. While we won't be writing code, we'll take you through various components of the web and how they work together. If you want to learn how to communicate better with your technical team or friends or you're considering a career in technology but don't know where to begin, this course is for you.

• What is the World Wide Web?

• Where are web site files generally stored?

• 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?
