This course is designed for students with no prior programming experience.
The emergence and continued growth of mobile technology does not however negate the importance of web based technologies. It was dynamic web applications, making use of new back end programming languages like PHP, which ushered in the dawn of Web 2.0. No longer was our experience static, generic, and impersonal. But now web applications could create a profile for each user and tailor content to their needs.
In this course, we will explore the development of the interactive web that we now see. Taking a deliberately slow pace through the basics of dynamic web development, this course is targeted at those trying to grasp the fundamental technologies that underpin our digital world, while assuming as little knowledge of programming as possible.

Our courses are designed to help you learn programming skills through practice. Here are the practical projects you'll complete with the help of a mentor as part of this course:
The Big Wide Web
Start learning how programmers around the world use the power of HTML and PHP to build the very foundation of the websites we interact with every day, and how we ourselves can use it too by writing and running our very own code and displaying our own web pages.
Communication is Key
We'll start learning how to store information in all its different forms and faces, as well as how to get it from our users - a highly important part of becoming a web developer after all. Next we'll start learning just how we can use that information to make our code even more useful through decision structures and repetition.

It’s rare that you find a course with a soft learning curve into online dynamic web development, using the legendary programming language PHP.
This course is unique in that it allows learners with little or no programming experience to learn how to build a dynamic website. Even if you don’t plan on becoming a software developer, you will benefit from the knowledge and skills you will acquire, which will give you a unique and valuable insight into the heart of the technologies driving the digital age we’re in.
- Motivation and dedication to learn, and apply your mind to more complex tasks in programming.
- Proficiency in both written and spoken English
- Basic computer skills, such as sending emails, file navigation, saving files and opening files.
- Note that this MicroDegree is suitable for beginner-level programmers, since it covers introductory content for each concept.
Equipment and Technologies
- Access to a computer and a broadband internet connection*
- Ability to run a text editor such as Notepad++ or an IDE such as Visual Studio or CodeBlocks, though we will provide you with all installation files
- An email address where course content and other important course information can be delivered.
*The use of Dropbox means you’re not required to be always online while taking this MicroDegree. Even if you don’t have internet - perhaps due to some loadshedding - you can still access your Dropbox folder and continue to edit/update files. As soon as you have internet again, your Dropbox will sync with your trainer and he or she will see your changes. Dropbox and our own website is also available on everything from Blackberry to Apple tablets - so you will be able to learn while on the move.
