The first Refcode class, "Intro to Professional Web Development" is intended to introduce beginners to coding languages, tools, and skills, and give them an idea of what a job as a developer would look like.

The introductory class will teach students to code their own website in HTML, CSS, and will also teach them to use all of the professional tools and methodologies, that a developer would use, including GitHub, Atom IDE, Kanban boards, Agile methodology (such as sprints and standup meetings), Slack chat, and many others.

Each student will be assigned a one-on-one mentor to meet with once a week outside of class. Graduates of the program will have continued professional mentorship afterwards and will be welcomed into the Refcode Graduates Professional Network, which will provide the opportunity to share and learn about job opportunities, continued education, events, and future classes.

Cost: Free
Duration: 10 weeks
Locations: Atlanta
In-person Only
Course Description:

This class will introduce beginners to coding and will give you a good idea of what the day job of a professional developer looks like.

After taking this course, you will be able to hand-code websites using professional tools, and you will have a good idea of whether you want to commit to learning the skills to become a professional developer. This course will not on its own prepare you to get a job as a developer (except perhaps if you are lucky enough to find an internship or a position looking for an "entry level" web developer) but it will give you a great head start and will help you make your final decision about whether or not you'd like to go down that path. For those who do not choose to pursue professional development, the skills you learn will make you a "computer expert" to most people and will help you every time you use a computer or the internet.

In this class you will complete a personal website, registering your own domain and putting it on a web server (provided by the class) and coding it yourself using the industry standard professional tools.

Coding languages you will learn: HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP
Tools you will learn to use: GitHub, Atom, Slack, Trello, Domain Registrars, Web Hosts
Professional Strategies you will learn: Agile methodology, sprints, standup meetings, kanban boards, pair programming, mentorship.

Class meets on Wednesday evenings from 6pm to 9pm for 10 weeks.

CSS, Git, HTML, Career Coaching, Domain Management, PHP, JavaScript

I have built my first website after attending this course. Amazing experience! I have learned HTML, CSS and some JavaScript. I learned how to find online sources for coding, and now I can do more than what I learned in the class.
