Become a Web Developer Quick and Easy

If you have not yet made the transition to a web developer, then this seminar is for you! This seminar assumes you have little to no experience using HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, MVC, JavaScript, jQuery or the Web API and would like to become knowledgeable in these standard web building languages. This course is designed for any desktop programmer who wants to learn to develop web applications using .NET and C#. Or, for a web developer who would like to renew his knowledge of the basics of web languages. It is recommended that students are already familiar with Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, C#, and .NET development.
The HTML markup language is the fundamental building block of web development. You are given a thorough overview and understanding of what goes into creating a web page. The basics of HTML elements and attributes are illustrated through multiple examples.
Want to make your HTML look great, be more efficient, and easer to maintain? Cascading Styles Sheets (CSS) are the answer. This part of this seminar serves as an introduction to CSS. You will learn the best practices for working with CSS in your HTML applications.
Developing websites that are responsive to different size devices is easy when you use the right tools. Twitter’s Bootstrap is the tool of choice these days. Not only is it free, but also has many free themes that allow you to modify the look and feel quickly. Learning bootstrap is easy with the resources available on the web, however, having someone walk you through the basics step-by-step will greatly increase your learning.
Microsoft's MVC Razor language in Visual Studio is a great way to build web applications quickly and easily. In this seminar you are introduced how to get started building your first MVC application.
The de-facto standard language for programming web pages is JavaScript and the jQuery library. You will be introduced to both JavaScript and the jQuery library in this part of the seminar. You learn to create functions, declare and use variables, interact with, and manipulate, elements on web pages using both JavaScript and jQuery.
The Web API is fast becoming a requirement for developers to use to build web applications. Whether you use jQuery, Angular, React or other JavaScript framework to interact with data, you need the Web API. You will be shown step-by-step how to get, post, put and delete data using the Web API.
