Let's be serious for a minute here... coding is sick and knowing the fundamentals of coding is a powerful skill to add to your digital toolkit and help you impress your boss (finally!). However, learning to code can seem intimidating at first, especially when you have no previous experience.
If designing a website has always been an ambition for you, then you'll be happy to know that there's an actual place that will help remove the anxieties of learning the basics of coding and make it a fun and achievable project.
The Front End Fundamentals course is intended for beginners and is taught in an easygoing and fun environment. The course is held after work, twice a week for six weeks, where you'll get the benefits of hands-on training and leave with tools to help you code easily. Basically, you'll be designing and navigating your own website in no time!
And although their new course is only available in Toronto and Vancouver in January, you can rest easy knowing that the course will be coming soon to Calgary, Victoria and Montreal in March.
