About This Class

Hey! Ever wanted to make your own custom website? This class covers how to make a website from scratch with HTML and CSS – you don't need any prior experience. And you don’t need to be a wizard. So geek out and learn how to make a single­-page website in this fun DIY class. You’ll be taken through the basics of HTML and CSS; how to plan your site; what apps to use; and how to write your code (it's really easy when you follow along).

You’ll love this class if you like building your own stuff; have website and app ideas; love doing things your own way; have ever wondered what's behind the websites that magically appear before your eyes; and especially if you’re a creative who wants to level up and get your nerd on!

By the end of this class you’ll be able to publish your own websites – with code you’ve written yourself. The world will be your oyster. You'll have a good base to learn new stuff from. And you’ll be able to share whatever you like with the rest of the world via the interwebs! Knowing how to code (even a little bit) is super fun and rewarding! You’ll have some sweet skills that will make your friends super jealous!

Rich Armstrong

Product Designer

Although Rich calls himself a Product Designer he's more of a jack-of-all-trades / generalist / unicorn. He designs, animates and codes. And if you want to learn how to make stuff unicorn-style then read on! Rich studied multimedia design and graphic design, and taught himself to code. He's freelanced, worked for agencies and startups, and now runs a studio with his wife in Amsterdam. He creates compulsively, has super ginger-powers and can touch his nose with his tongue!
