Frontend Web Developer Course

About the course

During twelve weeks learn basic web development and how to build webpages. You will know the basics of the mostly commonly used programming languages for web development and master the tools of web development. After the course you will be able to build simple responsive webpages all by yourself.

We meet at Stripped Pizza each Saturday, 12th September – 28th November 2020, from 09:00 until 11:30. The basis is an online course that you can follow whenever you have time. You can ask questions anytime through our slack channel. Every third week you will finish a project, that is reviewed by us. During the Saturaday meetings you get further inputs on programming topics and can discuss your questions if you prefer to do that in person.

Who is this for?

The course is for anyone that is curious about how to build websites. This is a beginners course for those who are willing to spend a minimum of 5 hours per week on learning how to code.

We believe it is best to learn in a relaxed and cosy environment rather than a competitive one. That’s why learning with Code Excursion feels like meeting up for coffee with your friends.

What you will learn

  • How to structure content on webpages using HTML
  • How to style webpages using CSS
  • How to build responsive webpages for mobile, tablet and desktop
  • How to add forms to your webpages and what a request is
  • The basics of how to make your webpages interactive using JavaScript

What you will get

  • Triweekly course bundle. Every third week you will get a bundle with new course material including video lectures, readings, a new project brief and practices. Plan your studies around what works for you.
  • Weekly knowledge sharing session. Meet weekly to share knowledge, demo your projects and code together.
  • Get support from our community. Join our community of hundreds other people that are learning how to code. Ask for help in our slack channel or get inspired by everything that gets shared on a daily basis.
