Contemporary Web Development
In this course we will learn and exercise common patterns that are being used nowadays in web development.
The course is primarily aimed toward those who are newcomers to programming and computer science, and will focus on the theoretical concepts and patterns that underlie the logic of today's web development ecosystem. Half of the course will be conducted in a computer-less classroom where we will attempt to tackle logical exercises on paper (!). However, if you're a seasoned developer and still interested in this course, bring your laptop and let's npm install the universe.
This is an "intensive" three week course, running Tuesdays to Fridays from 9:15 to 12:00.
