Web Development 1

Learn how to build websites and web applications. During this 12-week course, you’ll learn both front-end (HTML, CSS) and back-end (Python) development!

Winnipeg 06 Jul 2020 - 08 Oct 2020

The Web Development 1 course is suitable for total beginners and gives you fundamental programming knowledge. After the course, you’ll be able to write computer programs and develop websites and web applications completely on your own.

You’ll learn how to use front-end languages HTML and CSS, which are the basis of the web - every website needs them. For the back-end development, you’ll learn the programming language Python which you’ll use to create your first (but not last) web application and put it online on a server hosting provider.

The course will take place online, live via video-conferencing software.

Program/Agenda

First part: Front-end development

Most programmers made their first steps into web development with front-end languages HTML and CSS. In addition, you’ll learn the popular CSS framework Bootstrap and begin building your own programming CV on GitHub.

Second part: Basics of programming in Python

You’ll learn the basics of programming in Python which due to its clean and elegant syntax is one of the most popular programming languages in the world. Once you know how to program in one language, it’s easy to switch to any other, since programming principles are the same almost everywhere.

Third part: Back-end development

In addition to a front-end, every serious website also needs a back-end. You’ll learn how to build it using Python and upload your website to the server hosting provider Heroku (Amazon Web Services).

This course is very much practice-oriented. During the course, you’ll program many smaller (and one larger) projects which will help you get much-needed coding mileage. You will also include all the projects on GitHub which can serve as your personal coding CV.

Prior knowledge

Course participants don’t need any prior coding knowledge because you’ll learn everything starting from the basics.

What if I miss a session?

Every student gets access to a Student dashboard where you can see all the lessons in the text format. If you miss some course session don’t worry - you can study the lesson on your own at home. There are also five recap lessons during the course where you can make up for the missing sessions.

All online sessions will be recorded, so even if you miss a video session, you'll be able to watch it later.

In addition, there’s also Slack where the instructor can answer any question you might have.
