Web Design Fundamentals is a survey of Web design and development techniques and technologies, fundamental concepts, terms, and best practices involved in professional web design. Instructor James Williamson examines popular web development tools, server-side software solutions, content management solutions, and cloud-based software, providing a high-level overview of the world of Web publishing.
If you are brand new to Web Design or if you've been working with it for a while and just have missed out on the background on the Web and why you do some of the things that you do, then this course is for you. I first started designing websites in the mid 90s and like all web designers from that time period, I had to train myself. There really wasn't much out there in the way of training. So most of what I learned, I learned through trial and error. As you imagine, this led to many, many frustrating experiences. My goal for this course is to cover the techniques and terms that I wish I could've found all in one place when I was learning Web Design.
Hopefully, this course can offer you an understanding of how the Web works, which areas you might want to focus on, and steps that you can take to becoming a better overall web designer. Now if you've been doing web design for some time and you're looking for more advanced techniques or advice, this course might not be the course for you. However, I'd encourage you to stick around for a while. You never know when you might find something you missed or just a different approach than the one that you're used to.
