Web Design Concepts

The original Internet, ARPAnet, was developed in 1969.

The Internet is a network of networks, or a series of “Interconnected networks.” The World Wide Web (and Web pages, like this one) are only one part of the Internet. The WWW is a vast network of servers that:

  • Provide access to our own Web sites
  • Link to others’ Web sites
  • Display images and multimedia information
  • Connect with databases

There are a lot of ways to make web pages that are made from an HTML skeleton and decorated with CSS and images. Multimedia and interactive media, like Flash, can then embellish the site. Finally, client- and server-side scripting languages automate pages and make them more interactive.

This site will give you an overview of Web technologies and provide some tutorials on Web design and development.
