Learn web scripting languages and how to write code to industry standards.
Web Development Foundations (WDF) is a microcredential aimed at those, with no related experience, who want to learn to build web pages and websites by hand.
Students with no web coding background will be introduced to web scripting languages and tools by industry experts. Starting with the HyperText Markup Language (HTML), students learn to create documents for web browsers. They then practice building Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
Web Development Foundations (WDF) will provide basic skills for web scripting to create web pages and websites. WDF replaces the Web Development Fundamentals Statement of Completion.
