Intro to Web Concepts

Learn the basics of programming and web development with Aurelia Moser, a rising star and developer at CartoDB. This introductory workshop is for students with little-to-no technical experience, so don’t be afraid if you don’t know the difference between a client and a server — Aurelia will teach you!

She’ll also cover other basic concepts, such as the difference between backend and frontend code, the tools needed to develop a website, and the typical web development team. Students will review a series of programming scripting languages and their strengths and weaknesses vis-à-vis developing content for the web. This workshop is for people with little-to-no technical experience, and will serve as the precursor to a Fall 2015 course that treats web programming more in depth for interactive and data journalism applications.
