A primer on web development using the latest standards

Web development - an introduction to HTML5 and CSS3

It's been a couple of years since we last had a beginners session on Web Development.  So this will be the first in a short series of meeting introducing the basics of web development.

In this session we'll cover:

  • Overview of HTTP - the HyperText Transfer Protocol - that allows applications (typically a web browser) to access information held on a web server.
  • Introduction to HTML - the HyperText Markup Language - which is used to create web pages.
  • A review of Open Source software for creating web pages.
  • Introduction to CSS - Cascading Style Sheets - which provides a mechanism to make HTML documents look the way you want.
