What You'll Learn


    Introduction to computers

    Regardless of your technical background, there are dozens of essential concepts you must master to be a successful web developer. Quickly performing code modifications with keyboard shortcuts will save you hours of unnecessary mouse movements. Having a strong familiarity with the operating system also enables you to learn new technologies and build websites faster easily.


    HTML/CSS with focus on building websites

    HTML and CSS are the two core languages that enable us to create any type of site. We will develop our code writing skills utilising a variety of learning techniques that progressively teach you how to build any kind of website. Starting with the basics, then diving into the more advanced aspects of each language.


    Frameworks to speed up development time

    Every web developer will build hundreds of websites throughout their career, commonly using almost identical elements in each. To save time the web development community has developed frameworks that already contain the most common aspects of a webpage that can quickly be re-used, this reduces the time it takes to build a website exponentially.


    Cutting edge techniques for modern Websites

    Building a website can be relatively easy, at least a basic one. However, to be a web developer, you must utilise a long list of techniques and technologies that have been introduced to the field in recent years. These techniques are just like a set of tools that a carpenter would utilise to build a house, the right tool for the job. We will learn how to make beautiful animations on our web pages, add videos to enhance the user experience, and much more!


    Overview of the development process

    Web development is a complicated process which can easily involve 3-6 people who specialise in each phase. We will review these steps to help you choose which aspect of web development best suits you! From research, planning, sketching, wireframing, designing, and coding, all the way to launching your website online.


    How to utilize Web Developer tools

    Over the past decade the job of a web developer has become much less stressful and time-consuming thanks to a plethora of amazing tools that guide us through the process of building excellent websites. Thanks to these tools you will instantly know when you've made a mistake, and can quickly see the result of what you're creating.
