This 12-week course in front-end web development is structured around tutorials, assignments and individual and group projects to give students hands-on practice building the pieces of code that determine how an online experience feels and connects the user experience into the back-end processes. Through lectures and individual assignments, students will establish solid foundations in key tools of front-end developers: HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, JavaScript and collaborative workplace/version control tools Git and GitHub. The latter part of the course features team-based portfolio-building projects for community organizations, giving students real-world experience in web design and development. This course may be of particular interest to graphic designers, as it teaches the technical skills necessary for UI (user interface) development and wire-framing. The course may also be attractive to beginning programmers with aspirations to create mobile applications, as it establishes foundations in JavaScript that support eventual progression into full-stack web development.

This course is designed for students with a fundamental understanding of programming in python. Students will learn fundamental data science concepts using the programming language Python, specifically as a tool for collecting, analyzing and visualizing data. Python is one of the world’s most popular programming languages, and more businesses are introducing Python into their work. The course will take students through the process of a data project from start to finish building from clean and processing a data set to delivering meaningful recommendations based on the students’ findings. Basic statistics will also be covered to help students interpret data, such as basic summary statistics and how to recognize common statistical distributions. All this will culminate in the analysis and visualization of real data sets of the students’ choosing. This course meets two evenings per week, three hours per session. Occasional labs outside of classes will provide further opportunities for mentoring and networking.
