Web Concepts 101

Do you have an interest in learning how to code? Or do you simply want to better understand some of the more technical aspects of the web?

In this workshop we'll walk through the fundamental elements of web development in layman terms. No equipment is needed for this session, as we won't be writing any code, but we'll take you through various components of the web, and how they work together.

Topics in this session include (but not limited to):

  • What is the World Wide Web?
  • How is a web site built?
  • What do you need to know before building a web site?
  • What resources are available to you to learn more?
