What we're about

Making the web better, one site at a time.

Are you interested in learning more about HTML5, CSS and JavaScript?
Do you struggle with cross-browser development?
Do you want to make your site run faster on the front-end?

We're a group of Cape Town-based web developers and designers passionate about the technologies we work with on a daily basis, and we're keen to share what we've learnt.


Please note that we do not get involved in recruitment or promotions in any way and we ask members to respect that policy.
