Tech@NYU Intro to Web Development Workshop Series - Week 1
Tuesday, November 29, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Learn how to get started with web and app development through Tech@NYU's fast-paced, energetic workshops.
In this class, we will be doing an overview of what goes into making your basic web app. Start completely from scratch and get exposed to everything from front-end design/coding to backend organization and tools. During the class, we'll be making a location-based shout app, a sample of which can be found here. The code is on github:
This class WILL involve your participation! Please bring your laptop and come prepared. If you can, make sure Python is installed on your machine. If you're unsure whether Python is installed or how to install it we can help set up you up, but you have to download and install the necessary tools:
If you're on a Mac, you will need XCode:
If you're on a PC, you will need Cygwin:
If you're on Linux, well then you should be all set.
Our goal is to replace intimidation with confidence in order to inspire students to explore their creativity and make something great.
When & Where
To get there, we need students continually building, to learn and internalize the nuances of great product and business. Tech@NYU is the sandbox that students need: a place to experiment, a forum for recognition, a community for discussion and sharing, and a stage for inspiration.
We also engage regularly with a number of NYC entrepreneurs who serve as mentors to students. Only a couple years old, Tech@NYU is one of the most diverse, most forward-moving student organizations in NYC.
