Why you should care

Why is the course worth your time?

Learn skills that help you get and keep a good job

The apps you make won't do everything complex web apps do. However, you'll know enough to:

  • Make basic apps for internal use, like helping employees understand health insurance plans.
  • Create prototypes for complex apps. Businesses often make prototypes to test ideas.
  • Be of use on a real project team.

You'll have a portfolio of web apps you can show people. Imagine a job interview. You tell a recruiter, "You can run web apps I've made, on your own phone. Let me show you." That's powerful.

A solid base for learning more

Web app tech is complex, too much for one course. We'll look a few core technologies. You'll have a solid base for learning more, like how to connect to a specific database.

Pride in your skills

Take this course seriously, and you'll know how to do useful things. Impress employers. Impress friends, and family. Best of all, have confidence that you can make good stuff.
