Web Programming Bootcamp

Codex Academy is offering a complete web programming bootcamp August 14 to 18, 2017 (5 days). We will cover the basics of web hosting, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.  This year we have a focus on HTML Canvas drawing functions and fractal math equations.

HTML5 CSS3 JavaScript

This session moves quickly and covers a lot of ground. No prior experience is necessary but strong reading, math, computer and typing skills are required. We use a combination of live instruction and on-line exercises in an interactive environment. Students keep their projects as live websites at the end of the course.
