About the Instructor:
How It Works
You should have a basic familiarity with HTML and CSS as taught in a typical "Introduction to Web Design" class or book. You will receive some helpful resources to get you started in the weeks leading up to the course as well.
You will need to bring your own laptop computer and install the necessary software beforehand (instructions and troubleshooting will be provided).
During the Class
The course will be taught using a combination of direct lectures, independent exercises and collaborative project work that will give you a chance to apply what you've learned immediately and to learn with other students.
You'll have plenty of chances to ask questions and work directly with the instructor along the way.
We'll get you pointed in the right direction to continue your education, whatever your goals might be, and will provide you with the resources you need to help you on your way.
