This class is all about the seedy underbelly of web development: the backend!
+
  
I know we already have a [[Backend_web_dev_in_Ruby_on_Rails|backend class here at Noisebridge]], but this one is tailored toward frontend developers wanting to get a taste of how things come together. We'll spend the first half talking about PHP, then move onto a Rails, a more complex example.

==== Class for 2015-06-22: directives, routing and AJAX with AngularJS ====
 +
We'll continue learning the basics of [https://angularjs.org/ AngularJS] by learning how to encapsulate behavior into reusable elements, load data from the back-end, and create a site that acts as if it has multiple pages while still being a single-page app.
  
Here are the steps used for class preparation:

We'll be building off the [http://jeffreyatw.com/static/frontend/series7/class21/lecture.zip work from last week.]

If you would like to follow along, the easiest option is to run a virtual machine:

* Install [https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads VirtualBox AND the Extension Pack]
+
<h3>[http://docs.google.com/present/view?id=dfjgtf36_41hmtj2td2 Intro presentation]</h3>
* [http://jeffreyatw.com/static/frontend/series4/class21/Ubuntu.ova Download this preconfigured Ubuntu virtual machine (1.84GB)]
+
* Double-click the .ova file. You should check the "reinitialize the MAC address" step.
+
* Start the machine after installation and you're all set!
+
* System username and password are both "frontend". Feel free to change them if that's uncomfortable.

===== THE HARDER WAY: =====

On Linux, you'll need to follow these steps:

+
** When installing, choose RVM.
+
** Also run <code>sudo apt-get install nodejs</code>

On Windows or Mac OS X:
 
 
* Start with RailsInstaller: http://railsinstaller.org/

===== THE HARDEST WAY: =====
 
Install Apache, PHP, RVM, Ruby, and Rails individually. Good luck!

Front-end Web Development

A free, weekly class on HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

What

Learn HTML, CSS and JavaScript - and put them to good use! This free class, taught by Jeffrey Carl Faden, is aimed at beginners who are interested in web development, as well as seasoned professionals looking to brush up on the latest and greatest.

Front-end web development is all about making code that runs in the browser (versus code that runs on the server). There isn't a big focus on web design (creating wireframes and mockups), but we do cover best practices for turning these designs into beautiful code.

Who

This class is for everyone! Computer users unacquainted with programming, as well as experienced developers, are welcome at any time. If you're new to the class, consider coming to the lecture at 7:30 for a recap.

The space and the class are entirely free to attend. You do not have to be a Noisebridge member. Upon arriving at Noisebridge, state that you're here for the class and you'll be allowed in as a guest.

If you appreciate this class and the space that enables it to be taught, please consider donating to Noisebridge.

Please bring any kind of laptop.

When

Lectures start promptly at 8pm on Mondays and go for up to two hours. There is a half-hour recap starting at 7:30pm. Please try to arrive early as physical space is limited.

Labs start at 8pm on Thursdays and end two hours later.

This class runs in a weekly series, and the curriculum takes about 6 months from start to finish. Don't let it discourage you if you're starting from the middle - attend recaps and labs and you should be able to catch up!

Where

Noisebridge, 2169 Mission St., San Francisco, 94114 (at 18th St., near 16th St. BART station). Getting Here

The lecture is held in the Church classroom, which is in the back of the space.

The lab is held in the Turing classroom, the room past the wood shop.

Read up on getting in to the space. Again, you do not need to be a member!

New Series

July 27

[edit] Class for 2015-06-22: directives, routing and AJAX with AngularJS

We'll continue learning the basics of AngularJS by learning how to encapsulate behavior into reusable elements, load data from the back-end, and create a site that acts as if it has multiple pages while still being a single-page app.
