Ryan Mitchell, author of Web Scraping with Python: Collecting Data from the Modern Web and Instant Web Scraping with Java will teach basic web design at the Boston Public Library from September 12 through November 7 in the Exchange at the Kirstein Business Library & Innovation Center. Classes will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-8 p.m. (excluding Columbus Day). An orientation session will be held on September 7 at 6 p.m. in the Commonwealth Salon. Attendance at the orientation is required to register for the course. Class size will be limited to 20.
By the end of this eight-week course, attendees will have constructed an interactive website from the ground up, and have a solid foundation in web development that they can build upon to pursue a career or hobby in programming and web development.
Participants will need to have laptops that they can bring to class, and that they have access to outside of class in order to work on project assignments. They should anticipate spending 2-4 hours per week outside of class (6-8 hours per week, with classes) to be successful.
Although attendees aren’t expected to have any programming or web development experience, they should be proficient at using the Internet, both for browsing and looking up information. They should know how to create and save files and folders on a computer, install software, and use a text editor.
