Click on a week for a synopsis. While this is a pretty accurate representation of what you'll go through in our two months together, it does occassionally change up a bit depending on how the class as a whole is doing.
Monday | We'll power through as much HTML & CSS so that we can get started on the meaty parts of web development!
Thursday | Finishing off the introductory topics we started on Monday and get started on our first real webpage!
Monday | Continuing the webpage we started last week, we'll slowly work through the new HTML5 tags and how to use them properly for maximum SEO points.
Thursday | By finishing the previous webpage and starting a new one, we'll talk about the larger picture of a full website, new CSS properties and more!
Monday | The new website we would've started the week before will bring in new concepts to challenge your HTML/CSS skills, specifically with positioning.
Thursday | Finalizing and mastering positioning, displaying and aligning sections of this website will position us perfectly for our next topic.
Monday | We'll start a new website this week with emphasis on pseudo-classes and more advanced CSS selectors. We'll touch up on other CSS properties and implementation as well.
Monday | We'll finally step into the 21st century of proper web development by making all of our work responsive, no matter on what screen size by using media queries and responsive units of measurements.
Thursday | Building off of the Monday class, we'll fix up our previous web pages and talk about browser prefixes and good coding practices.
Monday | We will go over CMS and all the pros and cons related to it. For many, this is the point that they start thinking about making their own website in their free time!
Thursday | We will dive straight into Javscript today to get our first look at a true programming language.
Thursday | Finish making our previous webpages interactive in many different ways and implementing unique functions as we require it!
Thursday | Finalizing any projects we may have started as well as starting a simple, yet cool, day long coding project ranging from login systems, to quizes or interactive maps!

There are no pre-requisite classes to taking this course. In fact, it's a great place to get started!
+ WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE IT TO CLASS (COMPLETELY OR PARTIALLY)?
Crash Course Coding is starting something new to try and cater to these individuals! If you can't make it to class consistantly, either because of parental duties or your work schedule, or if you're tuning in from another city, you can look into taking our courses online!
We offer an online course experience with the use of webcams, screen capturing and microphones. It is the same experience of being in the classroom but within the comfort of your own home. There are some things to consider with this alternative that you can read up about here.
+ WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW?
Here is all you need to know:
- 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
+ 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.
+ WHEN ARE CLASSES SCHEDULED?
Mondays & Wednesdays, from 6:30pm - 8:30pm
+ WHERE ARE THE CLASSES HELD?
The classes are held in conference rooms inside The Two Twenty, a co-working building in downtown Saskatoon.
+ HOW LONG IS THE COURSE?
This course runs up to 2 months (8 weeks or 32 hours of class).
+ WHAT IS ALL THIS CODE USED FOR?
+ What happens after two months of class? (4+ month plan)?
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, we're not just running a business, we're 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 there is an upper limit to the classroom sizes.
+ Is there continuing education after I finish this course?
We're working on it! Soon there'll be extra projects/courses you can take to build on top of the currently offered courses!
What Languages 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!
