Web App Development Training

Web development is about designing and creating websites and web applications on a local server or on the internet. The entire process of developing websites and web apps include; client-side/server-side scripting and network security configuration, content development, web design, programming logic, programming, amongst others. At Dexter Cyberlab, you will be taught all that is involved in developing world class websites and web apps.
This course is designed to start you on a path toward future studies in web development and design, no matter how little experience or technical knowledge you currently have. The web is a very big place, and if you are the typical internet user, you probably visit several websites every day, whether for business, entertainment or education. But have you ever wondered how these websites work? How are they built? How do browsers, computers, and mobile devices interact with the web? What skills are necessary to build a website? With almost 1 billion websites now on the internet, the answers to these questions could be your first step toward a better understanding of the internet and developing a new set of internet skills.
By the end of this course you’ll be able to describe the structure and functionality of the world wide web, create dynamic web pages using a combination of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, apply essential programming language concepts when creating HTML forms, select an appropriate web hosting service, and publish your webpages for the world to see. Finally, you’ll be able to develop a working model for creating your own personal or business websites in the future and be fully prepared to take the next step in a more advanced web development or design course or specialization.

Curriculum

HTML 5

HTML, which is short for Hypertext Markup Language, is a set of written codes or markup symbols which are stored in an html file (.html) which are meant to display a user interface on a web browser page. The codes give instructions to the browser on how and what to display to the user from themes, to words, to pictures, etc. Every single markup code is known as an element, but it can also be called a tag. Some of these elements come in pairs that show when some effect is to begin and when it should end. HTML is the standard for most websites and web apps in the world and it is important that every web developer or student at Dexter Cyberlab has in-depth knowledge of HTML. You will be taught all you need to become an excellent front-end developer through HTML lessons

CSS

CSS is short for Cascading Style Sheets. It explains how HTML elements are to be displayed to the end user. CSS helps to relieve a lot of stress from the programmer when designing a website or a web app. It mostly controls the outlook of many different web pages at the same time. External stylesheets are stored in CSS files. CSSs’ style definitions are usually saved in external CSS files (.css). With an external stylesheet file, you can change the look of an entire website or web app by changing just one file.

Social & Search Strategy

Social media & PR strategy, corporate or brand social media policy goals, campaigns and guidelines, social media campaigns (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc). We help companies better utilize social media for customer engagement.

PHP

PHP is a script language and interpreter that is freely available and used primarily on Linux Web servers. PHP, originally derived from Personal Home Page Tools, now stands for PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor, which the PHP FAQ describes as a "recursive acronym."
PHP executes on the server, while a comparable alternative, JavaScript, executes on the client. PHP is an alternative to Microsoft's Active Server Page (ASP) technology. As with ASP, the PHP script is embedded within a Web page along with its HTML. Before the page is sent to a user that has requested it, the Web server calls PHP to interpret and perform the operations called for in the PHP script.

Flask

Flask is a web framework which provides you with tools, libraries and technologies that allow you to build a web application. Flask is part of the categories of the micro-framework. Micro-frameworks are normally frameworks with little or no dependencies to external libraries.

JavaScript

JavaScript is a programming language commonly used in web development. It was originally developed by Netscape to add dynamic and interactive elements to websites. While JavaScript is influenced by Java, the syntax is more like C and is based on ECMAScript, a scripting language developed by Sun Microsystems.
JavaScript is a client-side scripting language, which means the source code is processed by the client's web browser rather than on the web server. This means JavaScript functions can run after a webpage has loaded without communicating with the server. For example, a JavaScript function may check a web form before it is submitted to make sure all the required fields have been filled out. The JavaScript code can produce an error message before any information is transmitted to the server.

WordPress

WordPress is the most widely used content management system (CMS) in the world. After its launch in 2003, the free and open source platform quickly grown to power more than 75 million websites, or roughly a third of all websites around the world. The open source platform has a vibrant developer community that has created a range of plugins, themes, and widgets that help website owners quickly launch their own sites.
