Week 1 & 2

Web Programing with HTML & CSS

Get introduced to object oriented programing with ruby. Learn the foundation languages of the web: HTML & CSS. Our instructors will teach you how a browser understands a web page, and allow you to start building your own.

Week 3 & 4

Web Programing with HTML & CSS

It’s not enough to understand how your browser looks at a web page. You’ll learn how the server side of building a web application works. Using the powerful, yet easy to learn Ruby programming language, you’ll learn the principles of working with data and the techniques that professional developers use to structure their applications.

Week 5 & 6

Web Programing with HTML & CSS

In the final section of the course, you'll put the finishing touches on your very own web application, and deploy it so your friends and family can see what you’ve created. We'll then show you what else is out there and how to take your new skills to the next level.


Learn from professional developers who bring years of experience into the classroom.

This course is passionately taught by local developers here in Whistler, and supported by Lighthouse Labs.
