Intro to Web Development - Summer 2020
Learning to code can be intimidating on your own. Maybe you’ve started an online course but never finished. Perhaps you’ve made a website with Wordpress or a drag-and-drop web design tool, but want to do more. If you’re curious if a career in code is for you, or just want to gain a useful new skill, Awesome Inc’s Intro to Web Development is made for people like you.
Classes are two nights per week (Mondays and Wednesdays), 6:30pm to 8:30pm, for nine weeks. No prior programming experience is required, but basic computer skills (typing, using a web browser, etc) are helpful. Awesome Inc students have come from a variety of backgrounds, including manufacturing, design, food service, and healthcare. In addition to in-class hours, our instructional team is available for Q&A throughout the week via Slack.
Disclaimer: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this class will likely start fully online via Zoom calls.
