“Great breakdown of everything. Been looking for something to "bridge the gap" on how to get started with coding. I tried Lynda.com and a bunch of books, but this was just what I needed. ” -Johnny Hofford
“Great teacher and a great class, I totally recommend it. Learned to built a website from 0 to 100. Its a good starting point if you want to master web programming. After the 4 weeks I can look at web code and not feel scared. ” -Mark Henninger
“Jonathan is a GREAT teacher. He really knows his stuff and unlike most techies he has great people skills and knows how to teach!... Walking into this class I had zero knowledge of HTML and CSS. I tried using WordPress to create my site with no success. I now am enjoying this so much I want to get good at it and hopefully someday do this on the side for some extra cash!” -Dan Norcott
“This class was amazing. I have struggled to learn HTML and CSS for many years, but he was able to break it down into simple tutorials that allowed me to progress slowly. The videos are easy to understand and follow at your own pace, and the activities give you a chance to put what you learned to practice. I highly recommend this course or any future courses that Jonathan teaches. ” -Hannah Tran
