Introduction to Front-End Development

The goal of this class is teach you the basics of front-end development and some simple tricks to help you along the way. I will attempt to cover:

HTML basics and some HTML 5 features
CSS development using the Compass framework
jQuery basics for user interaction

NOTE: You must have Ruby installed on your laptop and be able to install Compass. To install, open Terminal and type:

$ ruby -v
# output should respond with "ruby 1.x.x"

If so, run:
$ gem install compass

Once compass has installed, run:
$ compass create foo


I work on HTML, SCSS and jQuery everyday. I learn something new every week.

Front-End Development is also a skill that you need to learn first if you want to go into it. I buy college papers where I found some courses and that must be helpful for me in every case.
