  • No unread posts JavaScript Programming -- Fall, 2018
    JavaScript Programming is the glue that holds together the HTML 5 and the CSS 3. These two technologies have been designed with "hooks" for the JavaScript Framework to connect to and exchange data. JavaScript is a Simple, Easy, straight-forward Language. Although it's original purpose was much simpler than it has grown to be; it is HIGHLY supported with transpilers, frameworks, library plugins, and a HUGE amount of API's. These extra Languages and Frameworks get Transpiled (TypeScript) into good old fashioned JavaScript (vs. ES5).

  • No unread posts Angular Framework -- August, 2018
    A theoretical and practical survey of advanced concepts and practices in current JavaScript technology using Angular 2, and 4 (like there is a big difference -- not). Angular Framework is a method of implementing Full Stack Development; this class uses the MVC development model to exemplify this (particular) implementation of JavaScript. NodeJS and npm and a bunch of provided compilers (TypeScript => JavaScript) help us understand the code. This course teaching reading code; there are no big projects in this course; the course jumps into the environment the first day. Along the way we spend time reviewing particular JavaScript principles that are needed to understand the code we study. Welcome Travis, Maria, Sumani, Daniel, Yi, and David.

  • No unread posts CSS -- Oct 19th, 2018 - Collin College -- Friday Evening Class
    Here is where Eric, Lu, Ruchi, Preston, Srinivas, Holli, Ruchi, Shilpa, and James come together learn about a very overlooked (complex) web development structure. CSS is a collection of code statements that direct the visual and functional response of a website. It formats and specifies the (magical) transformation that occur in the web browser. Over the past few years it has defined the specifications that direct both the HTML and JavaScript inside this browser; that is, it influences much more than just visually (as it use to). Therefore it's absolutely necessary to understand the syntax of CSS to fully control what gets presented on the web. CSS has a one line, simple, and direct syntax; but, what's inside each of a simple top-level items (there are three of them) control thousands of design choices for your websites.
