Content of the Course

In this course, you will create a web application called Account at a Glance from scratch using various server-side and client-side technologies. I have appended a list of the technologies that are covered below so that you can get a hang of what you will work with.

You will also make use of different tools and open source libraries, including jQuery, Modernizr, and HTML5 Boilerplate. Those libraries will help you get up to speed by providing standardized and proven templates — you don't have to reinvent the wheel for every new project.

Finally, you will learn about a couple of software design patterns, such as the Repository Pattern and several JavaScript patterns. Those patterns are best practices, which is why every developer should be familiar with them.
