+ WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS?
Here is all you'll need:
- Your own laptop
- How to speak English (code is written in "English")
- The drive to learn on your own (homework will be given!)
- Your own transportation to and from class (downtown Saskatoon)
- No age requirement! Anyone of any age can learn this, the sooner the better
- No previous designing/coding experience required
+ Can my son/daughter take the class?
There is no age limit to this course! I've taught people from 16 to 45 years old and I'm sure those younger or older can join as well! The only thing to keep in mind is that they must speak English and be eager to learn, otherwise, everyone is welcome!
+ HOW LONG IS THE COURSE?
The course is 32 hours of in-class learning over the course of 2 months. This course will get you from clueless to comfortable with three of the largest coding languages in the world.
+ HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Please visit the "Apply Now" page to see details on pricing or the online course syllabus for more details on what exactly is included.
+ WHAT IF I CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY IT ALL UP FRONT?
I work with students to make the course accessible and affordable. I understand that everyone's financial situation is unique and will work closely with you to create a customized payment plan.
Also, be sure to follow our facebook page to be the first one to know when we have a discount running!
+ WHEN ARE CLASSES SCHEDULED?
Classes are 6:30pm-8:30pm Monday and Thursday evenings.
+ WHERE ARE THE CLASSES HELD?
The classes are held in conference rooms inside The Two Twenty, a co-working building in downtown Saskatoon.
+ WHAT WILL YOU GET?
This course is not meant to replace a four year bachelor degree in computer science, nor is it meant to replace any other full time course on web programming. That said, you will not be getting any certificate that means anything to anyone who hasn't heard of CCC. What you WILL obtain are the skills to prove to your employer that you don't need a piece of paper to show that you can code just as well as the people who do have one. Luckily, 84% of employers already believe this!
This course is also a much cheaper, more succinct alternative on learning web coding that will be most beneficial to those who are currently working or taking classes but still want to add something new to their skill set without having to empty the bank. Think of it as a bootcamp of a bootcamp.
+ WHAT IS ALL THIS CODE USED FOR?
+ ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW? (4-MONTH COURSE)
I can almost guarantee that I have the worst business plan for a start-up company. That is because after you've taken and paid for the course the first time, YOU'RE WELCOME TO TAKE IT AGAIN FOR FREE! *
This benefit exists because at the end of the day, I'm not just running a business, I'm trying to educate people, and some people need a longer time to absorb the information than others, and that's completely fine!
*You can only join in on the class if there are new students paying for the course and if there is room in the classroom as I don't take more than 6 students at a time.
+ WHO'S TEACHING THE COURSE?
I am of course! I'm a graphic designer by trade but I learned how to code in 2012 and have never looked back. Rest assured, you are in good hands for your first steps in your coding adventure!
+ HOW OFTEN DO YOU TEACH THE COURSE?
The course is two months long, therefore the classes are only held several times a year. Please check the homepage to see when the next class starts.
+ HOW MANY STUDENTS CAN TAKE THE COURSE?
I can teach up to 6 people at a time. Any more than that and we run the risk of not giving you enough personalized attention.
Since it's after 6pm, most roadside parking is free, but if all else fails, Avenue D is usually free at this time.
What will you learn?

HTML is one of the most used web coding languages in the world because it is a basic building block of creating a website. If you don't know how to write in HTML (hypertext markup language) or any of it's "equivalents", then you can't really make a proper, functioning website. By the time I'm done with you, HTML will be as easy as speaking English (or whatever your native tongue is)!
If HTML is a basic block of creating websites, CSS is the reason why we enjoy making websites. Not only does CSS make things look a hundred times better by adding color, arrangement and slight flourishes, it also lays down groundwork for a responsive website that works on all devices!
