(Music playing) Hi! I'm James Williamson, Adobe Certified Instructor and lynda.com Senior Author. I want to welcome you to Web Design Fundamentals. This course is designed to introduce you to the fundamental concepts, terminology and best practices for those who are new to, or those who were just starting out, in Web Design. To be honest, I've included all the stuff I wish someone had told me as I was starting out. First, we'll explore what it means to be a web designer and the various areas of web design that you might be interested in specializing.
We'll discuss how the Internet works, as a means of understanding the underlying technology and processes behind what you'll be creating. This will allow us to define some common terms and techniques that you'll be encountering as a web designer, so that you'll feel more comfortable with the terminology and language involved in working on the Web. Finally, I'll discuss best practices, skills that you need to learn as a web designer, how to find a hosting company and get online, and give you some advice as to the next steps that you can take in your journey in Web design. I hope you're as eager as I am to dive in to this course.
