TEXT & MATERIALS:

Required TEXT

YOU MUST HAVE THE BOOK BY THE FIRST DAY OF THE COURSE. NOT HAVING A BOOK WILL NOT BE AN ACCEPTABLE EXCUSE FOR DELAYING THE FIRST WEEKS ASSIGNMENT.

Web Development and Design Foundations with HTML5, 9th Edition, by Terry Felke-Morris.  ISBN: 9780134801346 (e-book rental, 180 days) or 9780134801148 (paperback) are available from the PCC bookstore and some other publishers.

You cannot use the 7th or 8th edition of the textbook. They do not have the assignments we use in the course.

If you can afford it, please get the paper edition of the book. Most students find it much easier to work with a print book than moving around between computer screens while trying to view both the book and their code.

Required WEB HOSTING

Students will be expected to have an active account at Web Hosting for Students (WHFS) for this class. Exceptions will be made only for students with an active account at another hosting provider only if the student is comfortable giving the instructor access using the control panel and FTP. This will only be approved if instructor is able to verify that the server meets the requirements and is as professional as the WHFS one. The WHFS server is only $25 for a whole year, and can be used for all CAS classes that year, so it is very reasonably priced. Please see this page for information on how to sign up: oak.pcc.edu/cf/whs-signup.html

Required SOFTWARE:

You can use either a PC or a Mac for this class. HTML and CSS code runs equally well on either platform, and the exercises will work equally well on both types of computers. Your instructor has both a PC and a Mac.

The following (free) programs are required: Firefox, Chrome and an HTML editor. Most students use Brackets for editing their code. Assignment 1 has details about how to install and configure Brackets for the course.

Instructor comments:

DIFFICULTY: This is a challenging course. Expect to spend 10 hours a week or more going through the assignments and doing the projects. Please do not sign up if you do not have this much time available.

CHECK-IN REQUIREMENTS: Students must check in to the course (by completing the Wizard on the class home page) by Wednesday night of the first week of class or they may be dropped from the class.
