Who This Course is For

Experienced developers looking to level up their skills

Beginners looking to become a better front-end developer

At the end of the course, you will understand how to write semantic and accessible code that is performant and easy to maintain long term.

Prior to training

Our team of trainers put a lot of effort into making sure your training experience is successful before you step foot in the door (or in these days of distance learning, before you log into the training platform). We provide guidance and support to ensure you are ready for training with your local environment and answer any questions you may have. In addition to providing a detailed set of instructions for setting up your local environment, we hold a virtual call, prior to the training day, to assist anyone who needs help with their local setup.

During training

You have our team at your disposal to answer questions and help you if you get stuck. You will be able to ask live questions and discuss issues related to the topic at hand. If necessary, you will be able to share your screen to help you debug your issues so other students can benefit from this opportunity to learn something new.

After training

In addition to providing you with world-class training material that can be accessed at any time, even after training has passed, we share the recordings of each lesson. This is a great way to reference the training at your own pace afterward.
