Zack Chauvin, Web Development Alum
Now working as a Software Engineer at Facebook
"While a college education in computer science gives you insight into programming theory, very little time is spent on practical skills. I came into the course with virtually no experience in web development, but now, I can feel confident in my ability to see applications through from start to finish. Before even finishing the course, I’ve had plenty of people invite me to develop their projects and I’ve started building apps that I’m passionate about."

JuanAntonio Nelson
Luther College Class of 2021

This is a great course. The experience has been intense, eye-opening, impactful. You learn so much in a short time. The value is indescribable.

Raul Rodriguez
Dartmouth Class of 2019

I came with no prior coding experience, but after having taken the web development course, I’ve managed to become fluent in three different programming languages – HTML, CSS and Javascript. Honing these front-end languages has enabled me to contribute to SAOTA’s new VR website and design content that is aesthetically pleasing. From designing parallax layers to styling layouts, I’ve spent the past three weeks doing fulfilling work that both reinforces the knowledge I’ve learned in class and prepared me for my future endeavors.

Caitlin Hayles
University of British Columbia Class of 2016

I had absolutely no coding experience whatsoever when I began this course, which is why it is so surprising how quickly I was able to build an online booking system...I completed my first project in one week’s time using primarily JavaScript and HTML. It is incredibly rewarding to be able to learn on-the-go and build code from scratch that is completely different from anything I have ever done.

Emma Fass
University of Virginia Class of 2018

I am a comp sci major but did not have the opportunity to learn web development through school. This was an awesome way to learn new skills and travel at the same time. I enjoyed the teaching style and learned so much from Gabe, Allie, Ben and Rafi. The lessons were fast-paced and the teaching staff pushed us to do our best without using grades as motivation.
