Learn the skills you need to build amazing projects
in hands-on coding classes for adults
2 hour workshop. No prior knowledge necessary.
This class is all games. From hands-on activities to real programming exercises, this workshop is the most fun way to learn programming concepts. You will leave with new friends, fun games to bring back home to teach your family, and a list of resources to expand your programming knowledge.
2 hour workshop. No programming.
This class is for ultra beginners and non-coders. Learn the terms and technology that power the web, including acronyms, jargon, languages, frameworks, and more! If you're interested in what it takes to run a web development team, this is a great introduction.
2 hour workshop. No prior knowledge necessary.
You will be building your own webpage! This is our introduction class to learning HTML and CSS. You'll learn how to code a site from scratch using paragraphs, headings, links, images, and lists.
2 hour workshop. Recommended for intermediate level and students of "Build Your Website from Scratch".
You will code an entire gallery portfolio page rom start to finish. We will be going one step further than the introduction class by using advanced HTML and CSS. You'll learn about the box model, floats, positioning, pseudo-classes, and grouping.
2 hour workshop. Some programming knowledge or previous workshop attendance a plus.
Source control helps you track changes to your code and easily collaborate with others on the same project. You will learn about the basics, different types of source control, and tools that are available online for you to use. Then you'll create your own GitHub account to get started with a new repository. You'll publish your code online and even contribute to an open source project.
Why learn to code?
You will be in a small class (less than 20 people). A smaller class size means you get the 1:1 attention you need when you need it, but you still have the freedom to jump ahead or experiment on your own.
Our workshops are project-based. That means every time you leave with a finished product: something you can show off or include in your online portfolio (from your portfolio website workshop, of course!).
Learning to code is NOT just for people who want to be developers or engineers.
Programming trains your brain to think iteratively when solving problems. You'll use those skills tackling large, complex, or complicated issues with many variables and many possible outcomes. In a way, learning how to code is also like learning how to learn.
Debugging is a skill in itself: investigating issues, looking at them from every different angle, and trying to figure out whether you need a quick fix or a lengthy, concentrated analysis.
When you learn to code, you're also learning how to depend on yourself to find answers.
Building a website from scratch can be a fun and challenging project on its own, but it could also make you more valuable to your business or employer. Any business with a website needs someone who can create new content, edit, maintain, and debug it.
We do not believe that any one language or skill is better or more valuable than others. No matter where you start or what you're interested in, you can benefit from knowing how to code. Technology will change. Programming languages will come in and out of fashion. But since you understand the fundamental concepts, you'll be able to see the bigger picture -- no matter what technology is thrown your way -- and be able to succeed in using it.
