Well, I took this photo for a post. Though after retouching the photo, found out that it gives a nice feeling of programming even though it is just CSS.

Do you realize that the only web application functionality that the user directly interacts with is through the web page? Implement it poorly, and, to the user, the server-side becomes irrelevant! Today’s user expects a lot out of the web page: it has to load fast, expose the desired service, and be comfortable to view on all devices: from desktop computers to tablets and mobile phones.

In this course, we will learn the basic tools every web page coder needs to know. We will start from the ground up by learning how to implement modern web pages with HTML and CSS. We will then learn how to code our pages so that their components rearrange and resize themselves automatically based on the size of the user’s screen. You’ll be able to code up a web page that will be just as useful on a mobile phone as on a desktop computer. No “pinch and zoom” is required! Last but certainly not least, we will get a thorough introduction to the most ubiquitous, popular, and incredibly powerful language of the web: Javascript. Using Javascript, you can build a fully functional web application that utilizes Ajax to expose server-side functionality and data to the end user.

The Course was Great. It teaches a lot about the Basics of Web-Page Development. The instructor was awesome and ensured that the viewers got whatever he said. In conclusion, One heck of a course.

Very interesting and well-presented. It’s difficult to address all the different experience levels, so some points were (to me) a bit labored, but overall a useful, informative, and enjoyable course.
