Learn to Code: Complete Websites

Whether you wish to develop web pages or simply want more control over posting content to the web, an understanding of web development is an invaluable skill set. This 8-week workshop focuses on both the technical and design related skills needed to create fully responsive web sites for screens, tablets, and mobile devices. Using HTML5 and CSS3, you’ll design and implement at least two fully functional websites. You will also receive personalized feedback throughout the development process from your instructor and classmates to assist you in creating the best websites you can, even if it is your first attempt ever.

This workshop is the perfect starting point if you aren’t familiar with coding. Both the technical and design skills are covered in this workshop teaching you how to code HTML/CSS websites for yourself & clients. Having a strong foundation with HTML/CSS can also be very useful before joining the Galvanize Full Stack program

  • Future Web Designer: You know you want to build a web page for yourself or for someone else and you need the skills to do so.
