"I'll be straight-forward: attending IOC's Web Development Bootcamp last December was one of the best investments I've ever made in my career. It's only been 2 and a half months since I attended IOC's bootcamp, and I've already launched my freelancing business and am working with 3 clients. And this is just the start." - Angels, Spain

"This program is unlike any other out there. It's in-depth and practical, and you walk away confidently knowing how to build websites but also how to strart a creative agency offering web development. The value the team provides is honestly incredible" - James, Australia
This is a zero-to-hero program, so we'll walk you through step-by-step so that you understand what a website is, how it works, and all of the most important terminology -- by the end you'll be able to talk-the-talk with developers and understand how it all fits together.
HTML is the primary language used in every single webslte. We'll teach you how to write custom HTML code, creating structural elements like sections, headers and footers as well as all the elements within them like headings, paragraphs, links, images, and contact forms.
CSS (or Cascading Style Sheets) controls the layout and design of every website. We'll learn how to use CSS code to style layouts, typography, images, and more making our websites look as visually stunning as our designs.
We'll learn advanced CSS selectors so that we can target individual elements or groups of elements. We'll learn how to diagnose and solve CSS specificity issues when we have conflicting styles and how to troubleshoot CSS problems effectively.
Flexbox is the latest CSS layout property that enables you to build stunning designs quickly. We show you how to use flexbox & the grid framework 'Gridlex' to rapidly create columns and grids in your website (without doing any math!)
We'll learn the CSS box model, Flexbox and positioning so that we can create custom layouts and grids on our site and position our content exactly the way we want.
We all know how important mobile is, so we'll spend today learning responsive design and how to use media queries to make your site look good on every size device. This means your websites will be mobile-friendly right from the start.
With the static site generator Jekyll you'll be able to build a blazing fast and very stable blog or portfolio website. We show you how to create advanced custom layouts for any website you project you might tackle in the future, as well as features like blogs.
Jekyll uses liquid templating, which is the same language shopify is built on so your skills are transferable.
Smooth scrolling, fading in and out, pop-ups. These might seem like little touches, but they can make a big impact on the user experience for those visiting our websites. You'll learn how to easily create custom animations
We will teach you both the techincal and strategic techniques to optimise your websites to rank highly in Google search results so that you can drive more traffic to your website.
How do you get your website to load quickly? Optimize images? Make sure it looks good across all browsers? We'll teach you the best practices and troubleshooting techniques to make sure your website is production-ready.
We'll show you how to integrate your site with a content management system so that non-technical users can easily edit the content of your website. We show you our recommended CMS system, CloudCannon as well as how to apply your skills to customise websites built on Wordpress, Shopify or Squarespace.
Think of hosting like the digital real estate, and domain name as your street address. We'll show you how to connect a custom domain to a website, and hook it up to fast, reliable (and free) hosting.
We know that launching a new career takes more than just technical skills, so we cover everything from how to find clients, how to scope and price projects, how to manage client communication and more. We also share real pitch templates and contracts for you to hit the ground running.
