Web Development

Learn how to code modern websites that are in demand today.

In order to truly understand modern websites you have to know them inside and out, front and back. Noble Desktop's Certificate in Web Development program will take students from a beginning level through showing the latest in front-end development techniques including JavaScript/jQuery, HTML5/CSS3, web fonts, and mobile responsive web design.

But learning front-end isn't the only step to being a web developer. This program takes students behind-the-scenes, introducing them to dynamic data-driven sites with custom templating in WordPress.org and teaching them how to create their own custom database sites with PHP/MySQL.

With 128 hours of intensive instruction students will be able to create fluid, interactive sites that work across a variety of devices as well as interact with databases.

The cost for the 10 courses comprising the Certificate in Web Development would normally be $6875 if the courses were taken separately. However, Noble Desktop offers the complete program at a special price of $5250. If students have previously taken one or more of the courses in the program, they can finish the program and a discount will be offered so that the final price to complete the program is $5250.

Recommended Class Order

Web Development Level 1: Build Sites with HTML & CSS

Learn More

Jump in and start learning how to build websites. You’ll hand code HTML and CSS from scratch so you understand what the code means and how to write it. In class you will create multi-page websites with text, images, forms, and more... all styled with CSS. You’ll upload your files using FTP to make the site live, and walk out of class ready to build your first site.

Fireworks

Learn More

Adobe Fireworks is a powerful web graphics editor, letting you design entire webpages, slice images, build animated GIFs, and manage web graphics of all sorts. In this class you will learn how to design a web page from scratch, create rollover effects, slice graphics, and optimize them as JPEG, PNG and GIF, and more.

Web Development Level 2: Dive Deeper Into CSS

Learn More

In our Level 1 course we teach the fundamentals of CSS, but there is so much more it can do! In this course you’ll learn how to use CSS positioning to create more sophisticated layouts. You will create center-aligned and multi-column pages using relative positioning and floats. You’ll learn how inline versus block elements work, create CSS rollovers, and much more.

JavaScript & jQuery

Learn More

Learning JavaScript code gives you the power to write your own scripts or use freely available JavaScript frameworks, including the industry standard: jQuery. In this class you will get hands-on experience writing real, working code. You’ll learn how to create animated slideshows with transitions such as fades or slides, create animated image enlargers, show/hide additional content and more.

Real Fonts on the Web

Learn More

The days when web designers were limited to a standard set of web fonts are over! No modern website would be complete without custom fonts, and we’re going to show you exactly how to make them. Come learn everything you need to know to add custom type faces to websites while maintaining functionality across a variety of browsers and devices.

WordPress.org

Learn More

Not only is WordPress a powerful blogging platform, you can turn it into a great Content Management System. By making your site into a CMS, you will increase efficiency, making maintenance, updating, even adding special functionality easier. This intensive course will teach you how to do a custom install of WordPress, edit existing themes, develop your own themes, and install plugins.

PHP & MySQL

Learn More

PHP brings websites to life, turning static HTML into a two-way, user-interactive experience. It is the backbone of many web-related activities we take for granted: handling form submissions, powering e-commerce transactions, and interacting with databases. This class will introduce you to the basics of PHP and MySQL, from the ground up. You’ll leave with a solid foundation of how PHP works, including working with forms, sessions, and more. You’ll also learn the basics of MySQL, using SQL to fetch, insert, update, delete, and search records.

HTML5 & CSS3: What’s New

Learn More

Deepen and broaden your ability to structure page content with new HTML5 semantic elements and experience the magic of native audio and video support. With CSS3, you’ll create drop shadows, text shadow, rounded corners, elements with semi-transparency, and gradient backgrounds using only CSS. You’ll even produce simple animated effects without JavaScript or Flash (we don’t cover full-blown ad banner style animation in this class though).

Mobile & Responsive Web Design

Learn More

Make your websites work with mobile devices, tablets, and desktop computers. In this class you will code a complete mobile site, as well as a responsive site. Responsive web design uses media queries to detect a device's screen size and adjust accordingly. You'll learn how to optimize sites for faster downloading on mobile devices by using CSS3 instead of graphics, how to deal with Retina graphics, CSS media queries, break points, new HTML5 form elements and more.

HTML Email

Learn More

HTML gives email personality—no wonder it has become a staple of advanced communications. Everyone can benefit from sending HTML email, whether it’s large corporations or small businesses and freelancers. This class will cover building and working with two different layouts: a simple one-time email and a weekly newsletter. You'll learn how to lay out emails, apply email-friendly CSS, make a table of contents, and fix various email client issues.
