About the Course:

Official Website

UC Berkeley Web Design DeCal / Web Design: Basic to Advanced Techniques website:



This course is a 14-week, one hour per week, introduction to web design. Students will learn the basics of website design, building, and deployment through hands-on discussions, labs, and projects. The course focuses mainly on HTML and CSS, although students will interact with JavaScript, MySQL and PHP frameworks throughout the semester as well. Coding and design will be done with Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 and Adobe Photoshop CS4.

By the end of this course, students will have the knowledge to build compact, compatible, dynamic, and interactive websites that meet established web standards. Students will also feel comfortable deploying their websites on remote servers via FTP.


Prerequisites / Software Requirements

There are no prerequisites for this course. Any programming or previous web experience will be helpful but is not required. However, this course will be taught assuming students are comfortable interacting with existing websites via a modern browser.

There are no software requirements for students who wish to use lab computers. Adobe Dreamweaver CS4, Adobe Photoshop CS4, and a FTP client will be required for students who wish to work on their personal computers; otherwise the lab computers will already have the software suite installed. The lab is reserved for the decal from 7-9pm, where 8-9pm is optional lab time for students to work on decal related material.
