Web Designing Workshop 2k16
Seemadri Subhadarshini | Mar 17, 2016
Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardized code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web design partially overlaps web engineering in the broader scope of web development. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.
Understanding the very necessity of developing web designing skills among engineering students, Techpros organized a web development workshop at NIT Rourkela during ISM 2K16. It was a certified course, held on 12th -13th March 2016. The course fee for NIT students and for outside students was 200 and 300 bucks respectively. For attending the workshop, no specific pre-requisite knowledge was required. The coordinators for the above event were Saswat Parida and Bikas Kumar Sahoo.
A total of 17 students had participated in the workshop. On the first day, html was taught. On the second day, CSS and Java Script were taught. At last, a competition was held, which consisted of about 60 multiple choice questions on the topics covered during the workshop. A review of the entire event was taken from the participants and finally, the certificates were distributed.
