This class was an intensive four-week study in basic website development. We started with the simple task of setting up our own web hosting service, and learned the essentials of file/folder management and ftp uploading. Many of the lessons in the first module felt simple at first, but I was amazed how many things I did on autopilot and never actually knew WHY they needed to be done a certain way. The explanations for many coding principles and nomenclature had me smacking my head in my ignorance. Those building blocks made the next several modules more enjoyable.
