In this module, students learn best practices for making sure their sites perform equally well on all devices.

Module moves toward back-end development as students learn the basics of PHP coding, one of the world’s most popular server-side languages. Students are then introduced to MySQL and the concepts and best practices for working with databases in their projects. The use of these databases allows students to add myriad new features to their projects, including user account information and persistent user-created data.

Driven in part by the rapid development of DSLR cameras incorporating high definition video capabilities, the convergence of still photography and filmmaking has created a profound shift in the nature of both media. For still photographers especially, the integration of movement and sound into our work has become a crucial (and highly marketable) skill. From planning the shoot by storyboarding, through sequencing the shooting schedule, advanced lighting (including “motivated?lighting with continuous supplemental light sources), dynamic focusing and exposure, directing subjects...
