The course provides an introduction to web development. First we take HTML, which is the basis of the web. We will then discuss how CSS can be used to layout the website and differentiate between mobile and desktop design. After this introduction, we will immerse ourselves in PHP and SQL to get an insight into backend programming. At the end of the seminar we will spend several weeks on front-end development and learn JavaScript. The focus will be on the JavaScript library D3 and we will learn how to create interactive graphics/maps.
