Are you a creative or entrepreneur that wishes you could speak tech with your web development team? Maybe you wish you could code a bit yourself?

"It was great to be taught by someone who is so passionate and experienced in the subject matter, while still being easy to talk to and able to explain complex matters in an understandable way."

Please bring a laptop to class with Visual Studio Code downloaded.
