Awesome Community
As Sacramento’s 1st ever exploratory working space, our community members learn skills from coding, to fabrication and protyping.

Web Design Theory
Learn the concepts behind Front End development and how HTML plays a role in web design. Students will then go over how to begin construction of their own websites using HTML.
Build with HTML
Students will review common HTML elements used in modern webpages. Students will then utilize these elements on their first project – building an HTML-based webpage.
Aesthetics & Design
Building upon HTML, this class will cover the second layer of websites; CSS. Students will then go over various CSS properties used to design beautiful websites on today’s internet.
Applying Design
Like the previous week, students will be led through exercises to familiarize themselves with the CSS properties covered and begin using these properties on a new project – adding CSS to their HTML website.
Interactive Effects with Javascript
Students will begin to learn about the “language of the internet”, javascript. This week will cover objects, arrays, variables and loops, and how they play an important role in adding interactivity to modern websites.
Using a Web Server
Upon completion, students will then be walked through uploading their code on Amazon Web Services. Websites will be live and ready to use. Students will marvel at their success!
