Diploma in coding & technology
Computer hardware and software
This lesson introduces computer hardware and software, we learn about the evolution of technology and industry tech giants, as well as peripherals, system software, application software and productivity software. We will explore the fourth industrial revolution, digital society, artificial intelligence (AI) and immersive technologies.
Creating Web pages
The world of web 2.0 has seen the decline of the original static informational websites, and the advent of the new, dynamic, and interactive web application. In this lesson, you will learn the structure and components of both websites and web applications.
Websites and web applications are often separated into two main components: The front-end, and the back-end. The focus of this lesson is the purpose and function of the front-end and the technologies used to generate a visually appealing and responsive website.
Setting up a web server
Web applications cannot exist without a back-end. The ability of a web application to recognize, remember, and recall information about a user, and to provide personalized, dynamic content is what sets them apart from a standard website. This class will investigate the two main technologies used to provide this dynamic functionality, namely the back-end code, and databases.
The defining feature of a website is its accessibility through the World Wide Web. Here we will discuss how you can bring your production website or web application from staging through to a live server, accessible to the entire internet via your domain name.
PHP & Backend Code
What roles exist in the web development? The industry includes many disciplines and opportunities from a broad range of ability, from both technical and design backgrounds. Professions themselves have many overlapping skillsets, so you are free to specialize in the area of your choice. Alternatively, freelancers and full-stack developers require a broader range of skillsets to handle anything that comes their way.
PHP & Databases
Some websites and web applications serve products, ideas, or information â€“ whatever the value of the site, it is possible to generate an income from users of your site. The revenue stream options are discussed in this lesson depending upon the kind of website that is built.
Putting it all together
With everything else in place, the final step is to ensure that users know about your website. Search Engine Optimization is a hugely important tool to direct appropriate users to your website when you hold the solution to their problem. As web developers, it is very important that we understand the impact of our website design and build to this end.
