The course will assume some programming or design experience with a web site but most of the exercises will be scripted so that anyone can follow them. The students that likely will be most interested are those that don't have the back end skill set and see a tremendous advantage in learning only one language to do both front and back end coding. That means that anyone from high school that has learned the basics of HTML and CSS can enroll.
A lot of the training is on the administration and workflow of the tools which is harder to learn from books. I'll try to capture what I can for the exercises but if anyone has suggestions, I'm willing to listen. And as always, the class will continually be updated as the tools rev and newer tools emerge.
For instance, I'm still waiting to see how Famo.us is going to impact the animation tools. It looks incredible but won't be completely public until May 19th when HTML5 Dev Conference in San Francisco starts. And I want to spin up a partial.js site as well I think. But I'll never know until it's finished. After all, a project's requirements are never finished until the project is over.
