Description

The Code Boss experience continues with JavaScript, the dynamic coding language behind the presentation of interactive 2D and 3D browser content. The instructor presents the document object model, and you'll build competency with associated programming concepts and create projects of increasing visual and computational complexity. You'll discover how to find and customize freely available scripts and troubleshoot them, browse powerful JavaScript-based libraries, and explore framework manipulation to build code mashups for useful prototyping. JavaScript behaviors implemented via event handlers and visual rollovers are taught to give you the experience of setting up a small set of webpages that demonstrate your abilities as a JavaScript code boss.

Applies to: AT, YD

Description

Do you like to document, illustrate, prototype or simply "make"? Then join a worldwide community of artists, designers, scientists and hackers who create images, animations and interactive experiences by writing code. The ability to visualize abstract concepts is made easier with coding competency; one of the most versatile and accessible coding tools is the open-source product Processing. Initially developed to serve as a high-tech sketchbook, Processing has evolved into a true medium for your inner maker. Free of cost and uniformly accessible, it provides an introduction to computer programming basics ideal for the hands-on visual learner. No prior experience is necessary -- this course is for the programming beginner!

Description

This course introduces students to the possibilities for graphic design on the screen. Through lecture and exercises, the instructor explains the two primary Web authoring competencies, HTML and CSS, and gives you an opportunity to practice working with images, text, layouts, links and content management. You'll be introduced to the elements and principles of design, best practices for usability and accessibility, and gain an appreciation for the user experience. You'll finish with an understanding of both the art and science behind screen design, and a site demonstrating your new knowledge.

Description

JavaScript is a platform-independent, event-driven, interpreted programming language that enables a Web designer to add exciting features to what might otherwise be a static webpage. The course starts with an introduction to the document object model and a review of basic programming concepts and builds momentum as students learn to use and customize freely available scripts and to avoid common pitfalls. Browser integration with a JavaScript enhanced page is also a lesson topic that pays heed to the primary objective of all Web authors as they create an attractive site with full data retrievability. Class exercises give students the experience of setting up a small set of webpages using examples of JavaScript, such as status bar messages, event handlers and image rollovers.

Applies to: IT-R

Description

Although your computer may physically sit on your desk, it is virtually connected to a wide array of devices on an emergent global network. Web architecture is, in broadest terms, everything that allows traffic to speed along this electronic superhighway of interconnectivity. In this course, we examine the origins, design, and implementation of computer networks, and classify them by scale, protocol and connection method. Network topology, both physical and logical, is introduced, as well as the hardware (hubs, switches and routers) and protocols that allow for smooth communication and flow of data. An understanding of Web architecture is critical to Web designers, digital media artists, and anyone needing to learn the rules of the virtual road. Note: Students are contacted via email by the instructor prior to the start date of class with detailed information.
