How the Class Works
Throughout the class you'll be able to get feedback from your fellow classmates, ask questions, and join groups. Go at your own pace, you can either knock out your website during one weekend, or span it across several weeks.


What We'll Cover
This class is a begineer level class, and will cover the following:

  • Content and Purpose (projects, pages, and more)
