So you’ve decided to make the jump into web development! Great decision! But where do you start?
In this course we’re going to be looking at how to get you started as a developer. We’ll get you set up with your environment. We’ll explore Sublime Text 3 as an editing tool, and we’ll also take a look at command line, which is a tool we’ll be using a lot as developers. Finally, we’ll also take a look at Git which is version control for our projects - essentially a way to make sure changes are being logged and we have good backup systems for our actual work.
What You'll Learn:
Command Line - the primary way you'll interact with your project files and development environment.
Source Code Control - Git is a popular version / source control and code management system that will allow you to keep track of changes to the code you write.
Chrome Developer Tools - web authoring and debugging tools built into Google's Chrome web browser.
Sublime Text - the application you'll use to write code.
