Introduction and Project Overview
Hi, I'm Susan Simkins, and this is Introduction to the Web. In this course we'll learn how to go from zero knowledge of the web to learning fundamental concepts that will give you the foundation of knowledge you need to get started designing or developing for the web. We'll start out by learning how and why the internet came to be to be, to provide some historical context and then discuss what technologies websites are made with, the different contexts websites are displayed on. We'll learn what a typical website design and development process looks like, and fundamental web concepts like usability, accessibility, and web standards. If that sounds good, let's get started in our next lesson by talking about the history of the internet.
