A launch point for the basics.

This course is the best way to create a real portfolio while getting started as an engineer. Working with a professional frontend developer you'll build interactive websites, a clone of a Karma landing page, and an interactive shopping list - using HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. Don't know what those are? Don't worry, your mentor will teach you 1-on-1. You’ll come out of the course with a small portfolio and an active GitHub profile.

Think outside the classroom

We’re challenging the idea that a quality education can only be achieved in a traditional classroom setting. We think you should work from the environment that suits you best. Whether it’s your local library or the comfort of your couch, your workspace is wherever works for you.
