About This Class

Wanna learn to code in a fun, exciting way?

Feel like 'altering' a news site?

Or maybe messing with your friends' Facebook profile?

Wannabe coders, marketing masters, growth hackers... This one's for you!

This brand new course is perfect for those new to programming, as well as marketing gurus and creative types! In this crash course of Developer Tools, we learn how to 'hack' a news site, by changing the HTML to weave a news story of our very own.

Not only is this course awesome for practising your HTML tag knowledge, but it's a brilliant marketing exercise that can lead to some amazing, highly-engaging content with huge viral potential!

At the end of this quick course, you'll be asked to 'hack' a social media post...

  • Will you change a friend's status, tweet or LinkedIn post?
  • Will you change their profile photo?
  • You can even mess with their Facebook relationship status!

This is your opportunity to cause some major confusion! Once you're done having fun changing a web page, remember to print screen / screen capture your creation, and post it in the Class Projects section!

Extra marks for creativity!
