Become a programmer: Understanding Code, and writing modern HTML & CSS

Feb 03, 2019

Ashraf Abed

Wondering if a career as a web developer might be right for you? Start here.

First, we'll discuss how to understand and plan code in general, without focusing on a specific programming language. Programming is more than learning syntax. You must learn how to outline, plan, and write code to accomplish specific goals.

This can be difficult to wrap your head around at first. We take a step out of the code through an easy-to-understand analogy which walks us through the thought process for both how to plan writing code using a programming language and using frameworks.

Then we will learn how to write semantically correct HTML & CSS using best-practices, tools, and techniques to make our site attractive, accessible, and maintainable. In our training, we will be given a professional, unique image of a design, and we will write HTML & CSS to turn it into a fully functional webpage.

This class is taken straight out of Debug Academy's part-time 3-month "career in Drupal Development" course. By participating in this hands-on training, you will see how to build an attractive webpage, have an understanding of semantically correct code, best practices, and know whether a career in web (& Drupal) development interests you.

Who Should Attend
Content Editors
Front-end Developers
Project Managers
Site Builders
This class is geared towards non-web-developers. This may be of interest to you if you are considering a career with Drupal but do not know what it entails, or if you are a content editor curious about 'coding'.…
