So, we have covered a lot: from the basics of HTTP, to HTML, CSS, Python, the google app engine, the noSQL datastore, webapp framework, Django templates, JavaScript, the DOM, REST, JSON, JSONP, jQuery, Ajax, HTML5, localStorage, and canvas, among others. I think the weekly homeworks is really the only way to not just lecture you about these technologies (which is completely useless, no one learns to program by listening to a lecture and taking a test) but to actually get you to build real webapps. But, what do you think?

  1. This was a fun and challenging class that really got me interested in web app development. A word of caution to future students: this is a programming class. You will learn by writing code and debugging and you must be willing to put in the time and effort that it takes to code and test your programs.
