Web Development for Newbies


This course is designed for those who have ideas but no ability to code. You know, the bright eyed, bushy tailed, movers, shakers, entrepreneurs, innovators and makers, that fill the rooms of every beer and pizza laden meetup in town. Yeah, YOU!  Here's for you kid! So you've been DYING to get into the world of programming but haven't the slightest clue where to start right? Well this course will take you from idea, to planning, through the process of building a SWEET mobile web application. Its designed neither to make the student a software engineer in 6 weeks nor to be a replacement for the product a more experienced (aka badass, don't worry, this will soon be you) software engineer would produce. This is meant to be a viable alternative to posting that, "looking to hire a developer who won't exploit me" ad on craigslist, or outsourcing to an offshore development team who may or may not build what you want. This course will teach you the rules of the game, how to apply them like a boss and how to quickly find answers to questions when you’re unsure.

This is a 6 week course that will take place on Tuesdays from April 29th - June 3rd. The schedule for the course is as follows:
