How a website works

A website has a number of moviing parts that have specific roles and functions. At the beginning of the workshop, an overview of how a website works will be explained.

Website workflow and organization

A website commonly uses 4 different languages. At Syntax, you'll learn 2 of those 4 and will be introduced to a third. These 3 are used for front-end development and are always used for web development.

Organization is very important in web development. It's important for future developers that might work on a website you created or if you are working on a pre-developed website, you will have a good idea of where to find what you need.


HTML structures a website. It contains images and information in containers so that each can be arranged in the most appropriate way. Without html, the website can only look like a text document so we strategically put different parts of content into html containers.

CSS goes hand-in-hand with HTML. Without it, a website will look like a plain text document so knowing CSS is one of the most important languages to know to make a website look how it was designed.

Responsive development

Responsive web design ensures users have a good viewing experience on any of their devices. Google prioritizes mobile-friendly sites in its search results and it's essential to learn how to optimize websites for mobile by using responsive website development.
