Monday's class is all about the seedy underbelly of web development:
the backend! We'll be talking about HTTP, web servers (like Apache),
preprocessor languages (like PHP and ERB), web frameworks (like
Rails), and databases (like SQLite). Sound daunting? Well, it kind of
is, but this 2-hour session should alleviate a small portion of your
fears!

To prepare for this class, either set up a PHP-powered web server on
your laptop (Mac instructions:

or get an account at http://NearlyFreeSpeech.NET. We can help get you
set up during the recap session (so come at 7:30!).

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

Frontend web development is all about making code that runs in the
browser (versus code that runs on the server, which happens to be the
topic of this week's class). There isn't a big focus on web design
(creating wireframes and mockups), but we do cover best practices for
turning these designs into beautiful code.

The class starts at 8pm and goes until 10pm! Plan to arrive EARLY, as
the class can fill up very fast. We will have a setup period starting
at 7:30pm.

As always, this class and the space in which it's taught are entirely
free to attend. Read all of the details here:
