Jessica Chou

Producer, Marketer & Aspiring Web Developer

Jessica wanted to create a website for the film she’d produced. Previously dabbling in code taught her that she’d need some help in order to get her abilities up to par.

Enrolled in HTML, CSS & Web Design Circuit

Jessica was matched with a mentor, John, who helped Jessica create goals and a progress plan for her to follow.

Learned to code

To build up her basic coding skills, Jessica created a bare bones “about me” page using HTML.

Built her design skills

Jessica’s mentor guided her through lessons on typography and design and helped her create a styleguide and wireframes that fit the image she had in mind.

Put it all together

By the end of the course, Jessica created a fully responsive site that promoted the film she worked on. See the official website .

Jessica Chou's story

I had very limited knowledge of HTML and CSS before, and I started Circuits. Staring at the blank document was very overwhelming, but as I progressed, I felt more and more comfortable and confident in my coding skills, and before I knew it, I’ve built my very first website!
