    Thanks Ashley and volunteers! I know someone asked but I didn't quite hear the answer. What is the next sequence of GDI classes appropriate for us?

      The from mockups to code class would be a great next step if you want to continue with html & css. If you are interested in scripting we have a introductory javascript class too. The schedule should be posted soon.

    Are we working though lunch? If not, how long is break?

    June 22, 2013

    • Ashley

      Hi Esmeralda, we usually take a short break around lunchtime for everyone to go out and grab food and/or put money in any metered parking. It's usually about 15-20 minutes, but can be longer if class pace permits.

    Is it $80 for both classes? If so, I want in!

    June 14, 2013

    • Ashley

      Hi Laura, $80 is the price to attend the class which gets you two days of instruction (so 1 payment of $80 to show up both Saturday and Sunday). Look forward to seeing you!
