More information about the content of the course: During the course, students will become familiar with the usage of Web tools such as source code editors and node.js, which let developers use JavaScript to produce dynamic web page content. They will also learn to use Git and Github as Version Control Systems to track changes in computer files and coordinate work on those files among multiple people, through a Web server which they will be using throughout the course.

Next, they will advance their HTML- CSS knowledge by working with a very powerful tool for acquiring new and modern skills, the Bootstrap framework, to build a modern and mobile-responsive website. Bootstrap is a free front-end framework for faster and easier web development. Bootstrap also gives the ability to build responsive, mobile-first projects.

Bootstrap includes HTML- and CSS-based design templates as well as optional JavaScript plugins. JavaScript is the most popular language among web developers. They will also explore and understand the p5.js JavaScript library which makes coding accessible for artists, scientists, designers and educators. Students will also learn the Angular framework and get familiarized with WordPress which will enable them to create Single Page Applications for Web and Mobile Web applications.

The goal for students who participate in this course, after they successfully complete it, is to be able to develop Web applications, or applications that are run over HTTP from a web server to a web browser, and combine many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. They will learn important and up-to-date tools that every web developer-designer has to know!

Co{de} + Create is implemented in partnership between GFOSS and IOCC and Apostoli.
