Have a cool idea that you think could change the world? Or do you just want to know how the world wide web actually works?

Using HTML 5, CSS 3, and JavaScript, students add stylized text, images, and videos to create unique web experiences. With the help of real industry web developers, students complete the course with a finished website or functional app, which they can take home to continue working on, to host online, and show off to friends and family. Don’t miss out on the web app- ortunity of a lifetime!
