Web Development Training Program Beginning this Summer at SUNY Ulster

May 16, 2018 - Stone Ridge, NY - SUNY Ulster Continuing and Professional Education will offer a series of hands-on classes in the field of website development starting Monday, June 4, from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Students will learn to create, collaborate, and think like a developer. By 2024, the number of computer and IT occupations is projected to grow 12 percent, which means that companies will need employees with cross-function skill sets that blend coding, design, and data to build websites that are both eye-appealing and easy to use. This fast track series of classes is designed to be a career accelerator as instructors help you build your working portfolio. 

Website Development I

Students are provided with a hands-on introduction to the universal architecture of the web. This course covers website construction with HTML5 and CSS, file structure and hierarchy, design and usability concepts, accessibility-conscious coding, and website hosting and administration. Students will learn website development fundamentals by building a simple, professional website in class.

Website Development - Part II

Students will extend their knowledge of HTML5 and CSS in building multipage websites. Students will explore CSS strategies for managing multi-column layout, responsive design principles, and how to code a website from a design mockup. The course will also cover CSS drop-down menus, tables, forms, and embedded media.

Building Blocks of Dynamic Websites

Students will discover the power of dynamic website coding with an introductory examination of PHP and MySQL. In this course, students will implement basic dynamic functions with PHP and will hand-code a simple PHP-MySQL application to produce a dynamically-generated blog page. Students will examine similarities between their application and open source content management systems like WordPress and use what they learned to migrate an existing WordPress website.


This course is designed for JavaScript novices who have little or no experience with the language. Students will learn the structure of JavaScript: variables, scope, control flow, and functions. Students will create code that interacts with DOM and adds interactive behavior to a website. The course will discuss best practices and introduce jQuery, a widely used JavaScript library.
