Who is this course for?

Who is this course for?

Any website worth its salt utilizes a mix of HTML, CSS, and Javascript as its basic language makeup. This course focuses on all three, so those interested in uploading quality content to the web have the coding skills to put their ideas out into the world.

Who can benefit from these skills?

  • Anyone looking to gain an important and indelible set of skills
  • Business owners looking to optimize their CMS or build their own website
  • Professionals who communicate with engineers or product teams
  • Writers or freelancers who want more control on the things they create for the internet
Curriculum

Proficiency in under three months

Students will meet twice a week to learn how to code in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript; industry-standard tools and services necessary to build responsive websites.

As part of the course, students build from scratch two projects to add to their GitHub portfolio.

Those considering learning JavaScript will find this course to be a launching point to a career in full-stack web development. Skills learned in this course can also be applied to development for iOS or Android.

Orientation & Week 1: Command Line, Git, Intro HTML

Students begin the course by working in command-line environment (CLI), saving revisions of work in git, learning how to apply HTML tags, and authoring  valid markup.

Week 2: Forms, Input Fields, Basic Styling

Week 2 expands on how to use HTML tags in order to create input fields with forms, pulling data from other sites via IFrame (Inline Frame), and embedding media. Students will also learn how separation of content from presentation, element targeting for CSS, and basic styling.

Week 3: Advanced Layouts, Flexbox, CSS Grid

Having learned to style basic pages in Week 2, students will learn advanced styles of layout, including how to serve content on multiple devices using media queries such as “flexbox” and “CSS grid.”

Week 4: Project 1

Week 4 serves as a chance to review what we’ve learned to this point and to complete the first portfolio project: a hosted site with a responsive presentation based on screen size (i.e. mobile device, tablet, or computer).

Week 5: JavaScript, DOM

Week 5 will introduce students to JavaScript and the DOM (Document-Object Model). Students will also be introduced to basic programming idioms of JavaScript: variable declaration / assignment, conditional logic, loops, if-statements, and functional declaration / invocation.

Week 6: JavaScript, DOM

Week 6 focuses on using JavaScript as a general problem-solving language. Students will write code to manipulate composite data types and utilize their DOM knowledge to display it.

Week 7: Eventing

Students will begin building an end-user-ready experience by learning “eventing” and how to bind behavior (defined and programmed in JavaScript) to HTML elements learned in the first four weeks.

Week 8: AJAX, Third Parties

Students will use JavaScript to fetch data from third parties to create “seamless” experiences; (“AJAX”) is presented here. Students will briefly touch on the problems around JavaScript’s asynchronous execution, fetch data from a third party, and add it to their canvas.

Week 9: Begin Project 2

In week 9, students integrate all the material learned in the first 8 weeks to begin developing their final project: an invitation preview website. Students will create a well-structured and styled HTML page powered by JavaScript.

Week 10: Finish Project 2

In the final week of the course, students finish building their second project, which is viewable on GitHub along with the work they completed on their first project.

At the end of the program, students will understand how to put these languages into practice:

  • The fundamentals of how websites are built
  • The differences between what HTML, CSS, and JavaScript do and how you use them
  • How to work, edit, and commit and collaborate with git / GitHub
  • How to deploy a locally-developed HTML site to a production server
  • Familiarity with advanced web page layout techniques (flexbox, grids, responsive layout)
  • A basic understanding of how JavaScript provides interactivity within web pages
  • How to integrate fetched API data using the AJAX pattern

Project Portfolios

Start building your portfolio

At Flatiron School, students learn through hands-on experience. After graduating the course, students come away from this course with two original portfolio projects to demonstrate their skills to potential employers, colleagues, and peers.

Both projects will be built and shareable via the student’s GitHub page (standard for technical interviews) and will leverage the popular version control system, “git.”

Share your work

GitHub is the modern software engineer’s resume. Students push every line of code they write at Flatiron School to GitHub through our proprietary platform, Learn.co, giving them an extensive profile to show employers, co-workers, and fellow engineers.

Gain experience

Basic Responsive Website

A responsive HTML+CSS site that leverages the latest CSS styling techniques

Invitation Preview Website

Will build on an HTML+CSS site that uses form inputs to create an invitation preview (mimicking an invitation preview app)
