web design

about the web design program

The first step to creating effective websites is to learn the coding languages that tell a browser what to display on a user’s screen. Our learning path covers HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and front-end web design and development basics. While there are many ways to create websites with drag-and-drop templates, employers expect professional web designers to be fluent in coding languages to create custom-built websites and web-based applications.

The program flows at a pace determined by each individual participant, but to get the most from the experience, this program is designed to be completed within 6-10 weeks.

what you’ll learn

html

Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the default file format for web documents. You’ll need to know HTML to add information and different types of content to a website.

css

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) tell web browsers how to display fonts, colours, shapes and even animations. This language adds the element of style to the information on your website.

JavaScript

You’ll be able to write front-end client side code, back-end code for servers, or ever develop games, with JavaScript, the most widely-deployed programming language in the world.
