This track is for those who want to conquer the internet through creating their own websites or web applications. Frontend, backend, databases, usability, layouts, interface design. It doesn’t matter if you know exactly what that list means or if you think it’s the language of invaders from space. We have a challenge for you either way.
These are the tools we use.
We believe that people only want to learn about things they care about. If you force someone to learn something because it's “good for them” then they will quickly lose interest. We teach our students web development by helping them work on projects that matter to them. If a student is concerned about ocean pollution we can help them make a donation website. This way of teaching ignites the student’s intrinsic motivation. We strive to give every student a framework which they can use to bring any crazy idea to life.
Rarely ever is a great thing built by just one person. Effective collaboration is a skill that takes years to perfect. We believe that small teams can create magic. We try to pair up our students according to opposing strengths, like a developer and a designer. Working in a team requires everyone to effectively communicate thoughts and ideas, learn how to take responsibility and support each other.
