Courses contents

Introduction to HTML/CSS

This course is the foundation stone of the whole I Build Webs series. Knowing the HTML markup language and the CSS style-sheet language is basically a must in the world of IT. When you master them, not only you will be able to code your web from scratch, but also edit the ready-made CMS templates.

I build websites: Bootstrap and responsive web

This is a follow-up to the introductory HTML/CSS course. As you can guess from the name, we will take a closer look at advanced web styling, focusing on responsivity.

What does that mean? Well, basically that our website looks just as cool on the tiny smartphone screen as it does on the desktop. We need to deal with the fact that people access the web from all kinds of devices and prepare for all the scenarios. And we will make our job way easier using a styling framework, which will effortlessly provide us with a beautiful starting look.

For this workshop, you’ll need to know the basics of HTML and CSS but there’s no need to have your own website. We will work a sample page. But don’t worry, you’ll be able to transfer all you learn here to your personal projects!

I build websites: JavaScript

The introduction to one of the most widespread programming languages – JavaScript! We’ll show you the works of it, why it is so popular and how it can liven up your website.

I build websites: I change websites

In a way, this course is a direct follow-up to the introductory course – but instead of expanding your HTML and CSS knowledge further, it will show you how to use it for other things than just creating websites. In this half-day course, we will teach you to change the websites that already exist around us.

Do you hate ads? Would you like to reskin your Facebook? How about accessing images that websites won't allow you to download directly? We’ll teach you this and much more in our unique hands-on workshop.

I build websites: Game development

Game Development is our favourite workshop, because we like games! That’s why we hope you will like it too. In one busy day, you will create your own small browser game. Don’t worry, the basics of HTML and JavaScript are all you need. And we will cover that too in a short initial brush-up. There are no age limits to this workshop so come and play!
