Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript - and put them to good use! This weekly
lecture series, taught by Jeffrey Carl Faden, is aimed at complete
beginners who are interested in web development, as well as seasoned
professionals looking to brush up on the latest and greatest.

Front-end web development is all about making code that runs in the browser
(versus code that runs on the server). We'll be focusing on writing
interactive web applications, taking designs and turning them into code,
and much more.

This time around, I plan on switching the order of the classes. Early on -
within the first few weeks - we'll learn how to use the command line and
version control systems, and then jump into learning about JavaScript.
We'll leave the more design-oriented, CSS-heavy courses for later. This
reordering might make the material in the first few weeks seem a bit
daunting, but I encourage you to challenge yourself!

This is the first class of a new series of classes. If you or your friends
have been waiting to jump in from the very beginning, this is the class to
take - so spread the word. We'll cover the very basics:
- Explaining "front-end" vs. "back-end"
- Explaining web apps vs. web sites
- Discussing tools of the trade
- Explaining the separation between structure, presentation, and behavior
- Writing a basic HTML page
- Styling the page with basic CSS
- Adding a small amount of JS
- Explaining the role of front-end development as a job and career

The class starts on Monday, January 5 at 8pm, and goes until 10pm! Plan to
arrive EARLY, as the class will probably fill up very fast.

If you can't make it to the lecture, you can watch a live video stream of
the class. Join this Google+ Hangout event to be notified of when to hop on:
This video stream will also be available to watch after the class is
