Web Dev 101 is a unique online/offline learning experience brought to you by the expert instructors at Coloft Academy and Team Treehouse!
You want to learn to code, but you either haven't found the time or worked up the courage to tackle the challenge alone. Hey, we don't blame you!
Learning to code is complicated, time consuming, and there’s a pretty steep learning curve. That's why Coloft Academy and Team Treehouse have partnered up to bring you Web Dev 101: HTML/CSS and the Front End—a unique online and offline learning experience to maximize your abilities!
Web Dev 101 is a four-week course with eight in-person sessions. The maximum class size is 12 students to ensure one-on-one attention. We will meet at Coloft on Tuesday and Thursday from 7–10pm. Your instructor is Product Manager, UX/UI Guy, and HTML/CSS Master, Bryan Koch.
During this course, you will learn to:
- Build and launch a simple website
- Read and edit existing HTML/CSS (e.g Mailchimp, Wordpress, etc.)
- Understand some of what your technical cofounder is talking about
- Understand mobile programming
Your tuition also includes:
- One month of dedicated guidance from expert instructors
- A one-year silver membership to Team Treehouse ($250 value)
- Discount on the next Startup Weekend (May 2013) to put your skills to work!
Bryan has educated over 100 small businesses and nonprofits on content management systems like WordPress, email marketing platforms, and search-engine optimization. He was also the Founding Web Development Instructor for the City of Santa Monica’s Youth Tech Program.
Who should take this course?
Web Dev 101 is perfect for anyone who has either no understanding of coding, or just a basic understanding of HTML/CSS. In this course, you’ll master the fundamentals of programming, learn how to build and launch a website, and gain the skills you need to keep learning.
What is a Team Treehouse silver membership?
A silver membership to Team Treehouse gives you access to over 650+ videos and online tools that will help you learn to code with just a browser—no extra software needed.
In Web Dev 101, you'll focus on the "Learn HTML and CSS" Learning Adventure which covers HTML, CSS, Accessibility on the Web, and Responsive Design.
Why do I need in-person time at Coloft Academy if I have Team Treehouse?
At Coloft Academy, we teach, inspire and motivate. Life can be distracting, and Coloft Academy is here to help keep you on track, and maximize your learning so you can achieve your goals!
PLUS, you'll see how your peers progress through their learning adventure, and have an expert instructor to help remove roadblocks. You'll also recieve unique code challenges that build on the Team Treehouse online curriculum.
Why do we meet twice a week?
Meeting twice a week gives us the proper time to check in with you, answer questions, and remove roadblocks. We'll also teach you how to teach yourself more efficiently by sharing resources and tools, and tackle unique coding challenges that will get you thinking like a web developer.
What if I can't finish the "Learn HTML and CSS" Learning Adventure during the course?
The in-person classes at Coloft Academy should provide more than enough time to finish the HTML/CSS learning adventure—even if you can't spend time on the lessons outside of class.
