This web development course follows on from our Styling with CSS course and introduces dynamic content and user interactivity with your site. The course will be 40% client side JavaScript/Jquery and 60% server side PHP (as well as the necessary HTML and CSS) and will be based around site navigation, spam-filtered forms and page effects (animation, slides, fades, hiding/showing content). For the PHP you will be using your own free portable web server on a pen drive to test your dynamic pages.

    Excellent course, Steve was a very helpful and knowledgeable teacher. Paced the course really well for all those who attended

  2. 5 out of 5

    A very well taught course. Gives you a good introduction to JavaScript and PHP, and provides a firm basis on which to develop your programming skills further. The tutor is very good at helping you deal with the complexities of the subject, and never loses sight of how difficult it can be for a novice.

    Brilliant course, brilliant tutor. If you want to get going with interactivity on the web, this one’s for you!

  4. 5 out of 5

    Such a brilliant course. The teacher is amazing – he’s really good at helping you to understand the underlying concepts, working through practical examples in class and following through with notes so that you can continue to learn out of class if needed. I was a bit behind on using html and css when I joined the course – the teacher was great and encouraging me to catch up and recommended a couple of textbooks to help. A great way to build on your web programming knowledge. I would highly recommend!
