About the course

During the course, we will review the basics and the most common techniques used in website building.

Hello girl class

We will go through the basics of HTML, CSS and Javascript, and build a basic but cool web page, ready to post immediately after the course. Our teachers work at various IT companies around Jönköping, which gives you a great opportunity to network and create contacts with your potential future employers. The biggest benefit of the workshop is that you get to see what programming is about. Who knows? Maybe it’s what you are meant to do and you just did not know about it.
