Web Design Fundamentals

This course is designed to introduce you to the fundamental concepts, learning approaches, and essential tools for anyone who is just starting out in web design. Honestly, I've included all the stuff that I wish somebody had told me when I was just starting out. First we're going to explore some of the very basics of web design and I'm going to let you experiment a little with the three fundamental technologies that drive it.
Web Design Fundamentals
Now these are lessons that'll let you play around a little bit with the code and get a feel for what's involved in creating a web page. After that, we're going to take a deeper look into what it means to be a web designer and the various areas of web design that you might be interested in specializing in. After that, we'll talk about ways that you can get online quickly, even if you're just starting to learn the skills necessary to be a web designer. We'll then focus on the actual process of learning web design. What to learn, how to approach learning it and how design is different for the web? Finally, I'm going to show you some of the tools that are available to web designers and how to choose the tool that's right for you.
New to web design? Start here first. James Williamson introduces the fundamental concepts, learning approaches, and tools for web design. He explains what it means to be a web designer, the various areas of specialization, and whether web design is the right hobby or career for you. He then gives you some time to play around with the three core technologies (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) and reveals how to get up and running fast when you're just starting out. Plus, learn how to get a domain name, a web host, and all the other tools you'll need to get online, and find out where to take your education next.

The basics of web design
Web design is a huge field, with multiple areas of specialization. In fact, I've heard the term used to describe everything from the visual design of websites, all the way to the development of sophisticated web applications. Because of this, it's really difficult for me to tell somebody exactly which set of skills they're going to need to master in order to become a web designer. A lot of that is going to depend upon exactly which area of web design they want to specialize in. However, there are some basic core skills that every web designer is going to need.

Regardless of which area you decide to specialize in, for example, you're going to need to have a working knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Those three languages form the core of all content on the web, and you should consider them as essential skills. Although there are some tools out there that make the process of authoring web content a little bit easier. There really aren't any of them out there right now that are going to allow you to create websites without having to write at least a little bit of code.

Regardless of what their marketing departments are going to try to tell you. Now that's not likely to change in the near future either, so if you're serious about becoming a web designer, you need to embrace the prospect of writing and authoring code. I know that there are a lot of people out there than tend to be a little anxious about the prospect of learning the code. Now other folks are just going to dive right in and just charge head first but, if you're one of those people that have a little anxiety over it, I want to reassure you that learning the code is actually a lot easier than you might think.

And the basics of coding are extremely easy to pick up. That's why, in this first chapter, I want to focus on introducing you to those three languages, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. So, we're going to do a few hands on exercises. Now, we're not going to do any deep dives into the languages, we're not going to focus a lot on syntax, rather I just want you to have some hands on experience with generating code and seeing how simple most of the code that's required to create websites really is.

I've found that once people get in and write a few lines of code and actually seeing it work, that their anxiety just tends to melt away. Alright, so we're going to start with the foundation of almost all websites. And that would be html. And we're going to do that next.
