Description

As an entrepreneur have you experienced any of the following symptoms?

  • Spending too much money in development and you don't even understand what the developer is talking about.
  • Every time you need something fixed in your website (like adding a new link or changing an image) you need to wait weeks and spend a lot of money to get it done.
  • You can't move forward with your business idea because you don't have a technical co-founder and you don't know how to code.

If the answer is yes let me say that you are not alone. I work with many entrepreneurs and I hear these complaints every single week. The causes of this problem as:

  • All companies, no matter their size and industry, need development. From a simple website that shows who they are and what they do, to more complex solutions such as mobile apps and information systems.
  • Developer as expensive and scarce. But you probably know this already :)
  • They say Programming is the new Math as it is an essential skill to get around nowadays and in the works that's taking shape, but you weren't taught how to program at school.

At ZENVA, we've decided to tackle this problem and bring you a solution by creating our Programming for Entrepreneurs course series, aimed to give entrepreneurs the basic programming skills and knowledge so that they have higher chances of success with their business ideas.

In Programming for Entrepreneurs / HTML & CSS you'll learn basic web development concepts and skills that will allow you to build simple websites, modify existing websites and create interactive prototypes of your business idea so that you can use it as a communication tool with your developer, customers and investors.

In this course, just like in all courses by ZENVA, we'll follow a project-based approach. Through out the course you'll be building a "Metro style" homepage that looks great in a desktop computer and in a mobile phone.

What we cover in this course:

  • Benefits of learning the basics of web development for an entrepreneur.
