Class – Intermediate website design

Jerry Hartzell has just completed “Intermediate website design”

This class was offered by the HP Learning Center and was divided into four main sections dealing with HTML Usage, Cascading Style Sheets, Search engine optimization, and Website development and maintenance. The information was presented in an easy to follow format and while each chapter did not build upon the preceding, all content was valid for developing websites.
The chapter on Search Engine Optimization was a very good primer into starting a Search Engine campaign. Every website owner or manager read this chapter.

“I found the material to be a more basic website development instead of an intermediate level. But all information that was presented, was relevant to website development.”— Jerry Hartzell

Once again the experience of taking a class from the HP Learning Center was a positive one. As more classes become available the staff at Sites By will continue to build its knowledge base to provide the very best in services to its customers.

Static or Dynamic Website?

So what should you do? Static or Dynamic?

The answer is in discovering you website needs.

Websites are normally classified in two broad classifications, Static websites and Dynamic websites.

The Static web site or the so called static web pages are normally created using html with styling done with either graphics or using CSS style sheets. The dynamic websites would be the ones created using programming languages like PHP, ASP,, JSP or relying on content management systems like WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal.
Static website were the first type of website to be seen on the internet adn are still being used today. Sites by has developed a few static websites for its customers like Pro-Methods, and Display Craft. Information normally does not change often and updates are usually quarterly or longer time frames.
Dynamic websites tend to use a content management system to allow the customer to update their wesbite without having an indept knowledge of HTML or CSS code requirements.
