WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS

Stop paying outside developers to make changes that you can certainly do yourself. The money you can save, and trouble trying to explain the changes to developers can pay for itself with this workshop.

FREELANCER

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to easily build a 5, 10, 20+ page website – perfect for all the opportunities when smaller companies need a website. This workshop will help give you the technical skills, as well as soft skills like how to find clients, how much to charge, and how to build the project from start to finish.

DIGITAL MARKETER

You’ll learn how to create your own landing pages and stop having to rely on others to help you. Once you understand the basics of web design, you can easily apply it to creating custom HTML emails, too!

HOBBYIST

If you have ever considered becoming a web designer or developer but weren't exactly sure if you had what it took, then you’ll know for sure when you take this workshop. Even if you don’t want to work with clients yet, having skills where you can build websites and put content online can be an amazing skill set.

FUTURE PROGRAMMER

There are a number of programming bootcamps today, some as close as Denver & Boulder, that are full-time programs for developing students into software developers in as little as 6-7 months. This workshop is a great starting point as web design is typically a pre-req skill before starting the program and the instructor will help mentor you to properly prepare for the application process, as well as for the program of your choice.
