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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Dank Code Excursion habe ich in einer sehr angenehmen Lernumgebung das Programmieren einer Webseite gelernt. Vorgängig hatte ich sozusagen kein Wissen darüber, was sich unterdessen geändert hat. Der Front-End Kurs in St.Gallen ist daher wirklich empfehlenswert. Die Treffen werden von einem motivierten und inspirierenden Team organisiert.manuela, leader of marketing & events
I loved being part of Code Excursion in St.Gallen these past months. It‘s a great community of women who motivated me to start learning to code, helped me with any problems along the way and made my Saturday mornings full of interesting conversations, self-development and of course great coffee. I can totally recommend it to anyone wanting to start coding while enjoying great company with other inspiring women!muriel, book author & international law student
Beste Erfahrung mal reinzuschnuppern in diese für mich total neue Welt. Perfekt um Leute kennen zu lernen, welche gleich denken, gleich weiterschauen und vor allem gleiches oder ähnliches erreichen wollen und können!! Super nice und immer aufgestelltes Team und mit super zentraler Location. Auch neben der offiziellen Lernstunden immer für Fragen und Antworten und Hilfe da!
