Web Development out of the Box is a new type of web development course. Designed primarily with Christian home-school educators in mind, the course is for high school teenagers, but can also be used by adults.
The course takes the premise that students want to get to design good looking websites as soon as possible. So, the course starts from installing the ClassicPress content management system, and shows the student how it works. At various intervals, the students are invited to dig deeper, examining the technologies and coding skills required below the surface.
This second edition of the book uses the new business-oriented ClassicPress, in preference to WordPress. The two CMSs work in a very similar way.
