My name is Teresa Pelkie and I will be your instructor for this course. I created my own business, WWW Sights, a website development company in 1996, developing websites for many local small business clients. I have taught classes in web development since 1999 at community colleges in San Diego County, and starting at Canyons in 2017. I am excited to be teaching this course and I look forward to working with you this semester!

Course Description

Continues studies began in Website Development I using HTML coding and CSS positioning, including implementation of audio, video, Java applets, and introductory JavaScript. Concepts related to large‐scale development, site promotion, and e‐commerce may also be covered. Proficiency with HTML, CSS, the Internet, a browser, and Windows is assumed. Formerly CIT‐171.

CAWT 171 is one of six courses required to complete the A.S. degree and Certificate of Achievement programs in Web Site Development or Web Publishing and Design offered by the Department of Computer Applications and Web Technologies (CAWT). This is the second foundation course in the Web Development programs and should be taken after CAWT 170, Website Development I.

What to Expect in this Course

We will cover the newer CSS3 modules such as flexbox and grid and learn how to develop layouts used in today's websites. We will be working with a web server to upload all assignments.

I do not recommend taking both CAWT 170 and CAWT 171 at the same time unless you already have a good foundation in CSS.
