Zero to Hero

Our 10-day bootcamp will take you from little or no experience in coding to being able to confidently create your very own beautiful, responsive websites in no time.  You will learn how to use HTML, CSS and jQuery to design, create and build websites from scratch. 

Practical Projects

Rather than working on hypothetical challenges or studying for arbitrary tests, our students are working on real web projects from day one because we know that you learn best by doing.

1 - 4 Mentor Ratio

Forget giant classrooms, we accept only 16 students and bring 4 experienced mentors per session so you know you’ll have the one-on-one attention you need to thrive. 

Immersive Enrivonment

Every element of the program and curriculum was created with an understanding of educational psychology, motivation, and high performance in order to help our students get into the ‘flow state’ of peak performance.

We take care of every little detail so that you can focus on what you came here to do – learn.

DETAILED CURRICULUMOUTLINE

As soon as you enroll in the program you'll be given ~20 hours of pre-coursework. Through video tutorials and practical exercises you will learn: - Essential terminology & basic concepts - like frontend vs backend - Basic syntax of HTML & CSS - How to plan your portfolio website - Test your new skills by building a basic one-page website

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.

We'll teach you how to write custom HTML code, the language that creates structure in a website by adding paragraphs, headings, links, images and more. On day 1 we'll review everything you learned in the pre-coursework and hit the ground running building a landing page from scratch. We'll learn how to add custom fonts with google fonts, how to add icons, and begin to create layouts with structural HTML. By the end of the course, we'll be able to use these skills to create the structure for completely custom websites or edit existing ones.

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 '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.

We'll learn how to use jQuery (a form of javascript) to add interactivity to your site and integrate jQuery plugins. Now we can add cool effects (like the smooth scrolling in this website), create a dynamic hamburger menu, and learn how to create an accordion, slider or box gallery.

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.

Smooth scrolling, fading in and out. These might seem like little touches, but they can make a big impact on the user experience for those visiting our websites.

How to get on that elusive page one of Google. We will teach you the secrets behind ranking highly in Google search results so that you can optimise your website to drive new traffic.

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 two separate CMS systems, Forestry & CloudCannon so that you can find the best option to suit you or your clients.

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.

Many of our students are looking to start taking on freelance web development clients, so we host a mastermind workshop where our mentors share everything from how to find clients, how to scope and price projects, how to manage client communication and more.

From the night before the course starts, our beautiful pool villa in Canggu, Bali will be your home away from home. The rooms are twin or triple share with someone of the same gender and all with their own private bathroom. This villa is our campus, so each morning your 'commute' is just to wander down from your room to the classroom.
