Our Goal is Your Goal
The goal of this 5 week program is not for you to become a website developer. The goal is for you to complete construction of a mobile friendly website for your business, hobby or organization. A website that you can easily update and maintain on your own for years to come.
These workshops are for beginners and for those who already know the basics. Each week, participants will be given small weekly assignments to be completed before the next week schedule. This will ensure participants will have a completed website by the end of the program.
During this program we are also going to talk about digital marketing, search engine optimization and ranking in Google.
Bring your laptop & charging cable. A mouse is optional – it makes it easier for some people. If you don’t have a laptop, let us know and we can provide you with one.
We are limiting it to 6 participants per session.
Upon completion of the program, we’ll help you move your finished website over to a hosting provider of your choice. A hosting provider provides a place where you website lives. We can help you pick a provider, if needed.
