Code Now: Programming For Non-Programmers

In this ever-changing digital environment, content creators must be equipped with basic coding skills. Whether you are creating or editing a webpage, crafting a blog post, publishing landing pages or sending email campaigns, being skilled in HTML, CSS and JavaScript (jQuery) will render you indispensable.

This intensive two-day workshop provides hands-on training in three coding languages: HTML, CSS & JavaScript(jQuery). You’ll have the knowledge to confidently write code, develop web pages, and design a basic website with responsive interfaces. You’ll leave with an understanding of these basics and a simple portfolio website that demonstrates skills learned.

Course Overview

  • To change the appearance of your website and make changes site-wide with CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).
  • To use HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) to design or edit nicely structured webpages.
  • How to incorporate JavaScript (jQuery) to provide for dynamic functionality on your webpages.
  • To create your own portfolio website using CSS, HTML and JavaScript.
