Back in Web Development 101 you built Google’s homepage. Students consistently report that to be a fun project but they also say that it’s more difficult than it looks. In this course, you’ll build so many webpages that you’ll laugh at something as simple as Google.com.
Our first project will require you to draw on your new understanding of working with media by building YouTube’s video player page (the example video is one where I describe making contributions to open source).
The goal here isn’t to produce an exact replica of the YouTube video page, but to focus on making the media elements show up. That means two things – embedding the YouTube video player into the page so it actually plays and showing little thumbnail images along the right side.
How far you go from there in terms of styling is up to you – some of you will already be more comfortable with CSS than others, so knock yourself out.
Also, don’t worry about making the comment form work properly… your goal is to make the page look similar and display video.
Send us your solution so we can show others! Submit a link to the Github file with your files in it by using any of the methods listed on the contributing page. See the Google Homepage project for examples.
