We'll break our project into 5 Phases. What are they? And what happens during each phase?
What is "Full-Stack Web Development"? What does it mean?
We'll look at the most widely accepted definition of "Full-Stack". And we will learn how it applies to us, and our project.
Step in doing a project for someone else is... to meet them, and find out what they need.
In this step, we interview our client... as they interview us. And we'll look at what that entails.
The "Project Kickoff" is the official start of the project. So, what happens during the "Kickoff"? And what do we need to do, in order to ensure a smooth project? Let's see!
Sometimes, getting up momentum isn't so easy. Let's take a look at some sources of inspiration, and resources for idea creation... to help us get started.
Without a purpose, a website is pointless. It's like shouting random sounds, in the dark, and hoping that someone hears the shouts, and understands what you want. Let's look at how we can make our message clear.
Let's check out some web design components that will be crucial to building a website that people will want to use.
We live in a world of fashion. And the internet is not immune. Let's find the fashion trends which will have our website feeling "classy" instead of "trashy".
We'll be looking at a short list of trends that are popular in today's internet landscape.
Joomla is the 2nd most popular CMS in the world. So, what does that mean?
What is a CMS, anyway?
So, now we know what a CMS is.... but, we have to CHOOSE one? Awww, man!
Actually, it's not such a hard decision to make... once you know what to look for, and how to make the situation choose your CMS for you!
Joomla is great!
And here's why!
Bet you didn't know that your web browser was hiding hidden powers! Let's check 'em out!

That website could use a little mascara, and some eyeliner. Let's break out some "pretty me up" tools for your site.
IaaS, PaaS, and Saas... betcha didn't even know they were things! But, they're actually an essential part of today's online infrastructure.
Let's see what they are, and how we can use them!
Awww, man! More choices?!
Oh, where, oh where, should my website go? Let's view the options... and how to make a solid decision.
Thought you left the sandbox behind in Kindergarten? Not, yet!
Let's look at what the term "sandbox" means, in the IT field. And we'll look at how we use it... and why!
Just remember to keep the kitty outta there!
The task of constructing a development environment might seem like a daunting task. But, it's not so bad when we break up the process into steps.
Let's review those steps, so that we can progress smoothly through our sandbox build.
Let's Download VirtualBox
We'll need to download our Linux OS, before we can get it installed into our VM. So, we'll do that in this lesson.
In this lesson, we will move through the process of installing the Oracle 'Virtual Box' program onto our PC.
Let's configure our VirtualBox Settings. We'll install the Extensions Pack. And we will create an empty Virtual Machine, on which to install Linux.
Yeah, Buddy! It's time for the fun stuff!
Let's install LINUX.
We'll install our V-Box Extension Pack on the Linux VM, so that we can get extra VM goodies.
Let's make a "Golden Image" backup of our VM. What is it? Well, let's find out!
The quickest 'n easiest way to install a LAMP stack (as a web-server) on a running Linux OS.
Let's install the extra bits that will make using and managing our server much easier.
Let's check out our webserver to make sure it works.
Let's create a PHP script to test our PHP5 install.
Let's continue our testing by using our phpMyAdmin, database administration console, to test out our MySQL databases!
In this Lesson, we will download the Joomla! Framework onto our web-server. We'll use both the GUI and CLI methods to do this, so that we can become familiar with multiple strategies.
Before we can use Joomla!'s "Web Installation Wizard", we must first unpack our downloaded .zip file into the web-server directory and make sure that file ownership/permissions are correct.
We will use the built-in Joomla! Web-Install Wizard to install our Framework.
We'll finish our Joomla! Web-Install Setup by configuring our website for multiple languages. And, once we remove the 'Installation' folder... we're ready to check out our new Website !!!
