Welcome to WEB 289
This class is 1 hr lecture, 4 hours lab weekly, according to the official schedule. This translates to it being a very independent class. The goal is for you to come away from the course, and presumably the end of your web technologies studies, with portfolio ready (or included) material.
In addition you should come to understand the challenges associated with dealing with clients, with yourself as a client, different management methodologies, and the steps required to bring small projects to fruition.
