We will begin a concerted effort to start learning the base protocols for web development.
Look for us on the Library's 2nd floor.
Up until now we have done some good exploration of web development protocols. We have shared book titles, learning resources, web site examples and development tools. After much thought I'm going to go out on a limb and declare HTML as the simplest of the main protocols. It's syntax is fairly straight forward and the new semantics of HTLM5 are easily understood once the concepts of content verses presentation is mastered. CSS also shares a simplistic syntax although the shear number of directives can be a bit overwhelming. To date we have not found a complete tutorial to all that CSS can do and as such it might just be better to search CSS when specific needs arise.
So I would like to dive into JS/ES and do it by using a bottom up approach. That is to say we will start with a study of the specification for ES7.
HOME WORK !!!!
Before the next meeting everyone is required to read the first 4 chapters (up to and including OVERVIEW) of: ECMA-Script version 7 specification
For extra credit you might want to pop open the developer tools on the above index.htm page and have a look at it's structure.
- Ron Schreiner will give a quick explanation of how he got to ES version 7 and what is going on with the specification since version 7.
- The group will discuss the first 4 chapters of ES7. Share what you have learned and ask questions if necessary.
- If time permits the group will share what they have learned about how to start a web site from scratch.
