Demo: How a Website is Built

We'll walk you through the process we use to create websites from scratch.

It's easy to read about how a website gets built without really being able to visualize the process. We want to actually show you how it's done because we believe that context is incredibly important. You need to be able to see the bigger picture before learning the details of how to code.

In this demo, I'll walk you through the process -- from start to finish -- of creating a straightforward blogging website. One thing which might surprise you is how much thought goes into things before I write a line of code. This is important -- taking a rational and thoughtful approach will make you a better developer and save you a lot of time in the end.

You don't need to understand everything that's going on. This is meant to be a fast-moving look at a full workflow, and it's one that you'll become very familiar with over the course of the program.
