Web Technologies II

Taught by Jonathan Soma

Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, and plans on getting married to Waffle House. In his more droll moments he is a tragic sellout to higher ed as a professor of data journalism at Columbia University's journalism school.

I've been teaching this Introduction to Web Technologies course for a while, and oddly enough the Internet is really hard to get through in one go. So let's do a second part!

Secret Fact: Intro to Web Tech is not a prerequisite, so those of you who are curious can jump right in.

This course will mainly focus on technologies that live on the server. Programming languages, frameworks, databases, stuff like that! Applicable buzzwords include: PHP, Django, MySQL, Ruby, Rails, Java, ASP, SSH etc unto infinity.

I'll talk about the history and culture of development for the Web, and give you broad, unfair generalizations about a developer's choice of programming language.

If you're just looking to learn how to make a website, I'd recommend Coding for Designers, but if you're looking for a deeper knowledge of what makes the Web tick you're in the right spot!
