Application Programming Interface (or API)

An API, or application programming interface, is a set of rules that determines how programs can interact with one another. These rules allow programmers to design their programs to work together for a cohesive experience.

CSS

Calvin Tan, a Front-End Web Development instructor at GA Singapore, says, “CSS, which stands for Cascading Style Sheets, is the language that sets the appearance of a website, including its fonts, color, and layout. It is a companion to the HTML language: HTML provides the content of a website, and CSS enhances the styling of the HTML content. Besides being used to create visually engaging websites, CSS is often used to enhance the aesthetics of user interfaces for web and mobile applications.

"In General Assembly’s part-time Front-End Web Development (FEWD) course, our full-time Web Development Immersive course, and our online HTML, CSS & Web Design course, students learn how to write CSS syntax and link it effectively with HTML files. We also break down the most commonly used CSS properties, such as styling of text and background images. Students learn how to style multiple elements or a smaller group of elements through the use of classes, IDs, advanced selectors, and pseudo-selectors, and delve into creating layouts by using margins and paddings, floats, and positioning using flexbox. By the end of these courses, students are equipped with a firm understanding of CSS and the ability to create a visually appealing, interactive website that responds to various mobile or tablet devices."

HTML

Sasha Vodnik, Front-End Web Development instructor at GA San Francisco, says, "Hypertext Markup Language, or HTML, is a programming language used to describe the structure of information on a web page. Together, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript make up the essential building blocks of websites, with CSS controlling a page’s appearance, and JavaScript programming its functionality. You can think of HTML as providing the bones of a web page, while CSS provides the skin, and JavaScript provides the brains.

"In GA’s part-time courses in Front-End Web Development and HTML, CSS & Web Design, and our career-changing, full-time Web Development Immersive program, you’ll get hands-on practice coding your own projects, from static personal and business websites to single-page applications like games and interactive photo galleries. These projects give you practice using basic HTML tags and structuring pages with different components, including headers, footers, sidebars, and navigation. You’ll also code CSS and JavaScript, and learn how to put all three together to build websites that implement modern standards and use best practices for front-end development."

JavaScript

JavaScript is the only programming language that can be used in a browser, and is used widely in web development. With JavaScript, you can add interactivity and behaviour to your site — including features like drop-down menus, animations, and more — to create a richer web experience.

JavaScript Function

Along with objects, functions are one of the most important tools in the JavaScript language. JavaScript functions allow programmers to define custom processes in their code. These processes can take input values, perform actions based on those inputs, and even return output results.

JavaScript Object

Objects are one of the most fundamental aspects of the JavaScript language. In JavaScript, an object is a collection of data and behaviours used to represent an “entity” in your program. By combining different kinds of objects, developers can write code to accomplish a broad range of tasks.

jQuery

A popular resource for JavaScript programmers, jQuery makes it easier to add interactivity to websites and applications. This free, open-source library is full of ready-made code that powers animations, event handling, and more.

Object-Oriented Programming

A programming paradigm in which models (“objects") are given data (“properties”) and functionality ("methods") that allow them to perform various actions. Languages including JavaScript and Ruby are built off of object-oriented programming (OOP) logic.

Responsive Design

An essential consideration in a mobile-powered world, responsive design ensures that the layout and dimensions of websites and applications adjust to the screen size on which they’re viewed — desktop, smartphone, tablet, or otherwise.

Web Browser

Web browsers like Google Chrome, Apple Safari, and Mozilla Firefox are how ordinary users interact with website and web applications every day. Explore these “windows to the web,” and discover how computer code is transformed into visible content that we can interact with.
