Web Programming Fundamentals

Course Code: WDDM 004

Academic Year: 2017-2018

Web pages can currently be created using a diverse range of tools and programming languages. The most fundamental language of the web, however, is Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). Students will use the most recent variant of the language, HTML5, to create web pages using modern code editors and software suites. Once familiar with HTML, students will be introduced to Cascading Style Sheets (CSS3) as a way to visually format and style their HTML code. There is a strong focus on best practices and web standards throughout the course. Near the end of the course, students will also be introduced to the fundamentals of JavaScript and PHP allowing them to begin creating more dynamic and interesting websites. Both JavaScript and PHP will be used to demonstrate the fundamentals of procedural programming languages.
