Linux Professional Institute Releases Web Development Essentials
Linux Professional Institute (LPI) announces the availability of the Web Development Essentials program. The program provides an introduction to software development using web technologies. The program contains learning objectives, Learning Materials, an exam, and a certificate that is awarded upon passing the exam.
“Web Development Essentials is intended to be an introduction into software development. It covers all the basic principles but provides enough content to achieve immediate success in building a simple application”, says Fabian Thorns, LPI’s Director of Product Development. “The combination of learning objectives, Learning Materials, an exam, and a certificate is a comprehensive package that equips both learners and teachers with everything they need to get started”, Thorns continues.
“LPI’s mission is to support anyone working with open technologies. Software development is an integral part of professional IT, and it is one of the most prominent areas of free technologies. With Web Development Essentials, we provide an entry to software development using an entirely open source stack that is available to anyone on any platform”, says Matthew Rice, Executive Director of LPI.
The learning objectives are available on the LPI website at lpi.org/wde. The LPI website also provides more information about taking LPI exams. The Learning Materials are available for free at learning.lpi.org in five languages. The exam is initially released in English. Additional translations of both the Learning Materials and the exams will be released over the course of the year.
Teachers and trainers, as well as learners interested in Web Development Essentials, can contact LPI at email@example.com for any further information.
