HANDS ON LEARNING

Hack days

We’ll be playing around with new languages or software that we didn’t get a chance to try in class and try to learn them on our own (ish)…of course, the instructor will always be there for help, as well as your peers.

Lab Days

Are about building something fun and functional and then presenting it to the rest of the class. For instance, imagine building a simple version of Twitter or a website for a celebrity cartoon character.

Part of the job of a web developer is to be in the present (ie. solve problems and improvise) but also know what’s coming down the pipeline for new technology and know when to pick it up. That’s what you’re going to learn in this program.
