About the course

Front end development has come a long way in recent years. Websites used to be simple, have a small handful of pages, a few jQuery plugins and perhaps some server side functionality for handling form submissions.

Now, building a modern front-end website involves boilerplates, generators, package managers, task runners, pre-processors and post-processors. And the complexity in web development continues to grow with many moving parts. It’s confusing and overwhelming to those just starting or transitioning from older techniques.

In our course Responsive Web Development, we’ll give you the blueprint for building modern responsive websites. Guilherme Müller walks you through the process of building a front end workflow using powerful tools and concepts. Not only does this course cover the theory of modern responsive web development, you’ll learn how to apply each of these fundamental concepts in practice. By building a single-page portfolio website, step by step we’ll demonstrate each concepts by action.

Specifically, we’ll be covering:

  • How to work with the command line
  • Node.js and its npm package manager
  • Gulp for running common development tasks
  • Sass for pre-processing your styles and building your responsive grid system
  • Autoprefixer for automatically adding vendor prefixes
  • BrowserSync for automatically reloading the browser and for remote device testing
  • Using the BEM naming convention for organizing your HTML and CSS as reusable components

To complete this course we’ll be using a web browser, a text editor, and a command line interface. You’ll need to be comfortable with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to follow along with this intermediate level course. It can be tricky.

Once you’ve completed this course, you may want to check out Functional JavaScript Programming, learn about how the web is progressing and JavaScript is moving forward with functional programming.
