Course Description

Excuses cause inaction and thus limit progress. Some excuses I hear all the time about web design is:

-"I don't have enough time" 
-"I don't have the money for to hire web designer"
-"I'm not technical"
-"It's too hard"

Let's say you were just starting out to play Basketball. How would you do it? A lot of excuses to not play basketball might be:

-"I don't have enough time" 
-"I don't have the money for to hire a coach"
-"I'm not athletic"
-"It's too hard"

We could adjust the above excuse for almost any skill. 

So, how would you learn the basics of basketball? 

1. Copy someone else while learning the basics-- perhaps getting some advice from someone who knows how to play a little.
2. Practice on your own (a lot). Realize you sucked at walking when you first tried (even though it's hard to remember.
3. Get Advanced Coaching ? Start a team? Join a team? Play Real Games? Start a league?

#3 Is where you start having new options. #3 is where I want to bring you with this course, except, not with basketball but website design.

 If you read this summary, there's a great chance you can write it (perhaps not unique content but copy it word for word) and if you can write it you can CODE. Yup, I said it.

Code is simply writing. You just have to know what to write, and how to give it the proper that a web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari Internet Explorer) can read.

Are you ready to begin?

  • Learn HTML
  • Learn CSS
  • Learn basic Javacript
  • Build your project's website

What is the target audience?

Instructor Biography

It all started with an idea. I wanted freedom... badly. Freedom from work, freedom from boredom, and, most of all, the freedom to choose. This simple idea grew to define me; it made me become an entrepreneur.

As I strived to gain freedom, overtime I realized that with everything that you do you can either (1) convince someone, somehow, to do it with you or (2) figure out how to do it yourself.

Due to a lack of financial resources (and probably the ability to convince people to do high quality work for free), I decided to learn. Then learn some more. Then some more. My path of learning website design started a long time ago. And yes, it was out of need not desire. I believed I needed a website for a company that I started. So I learned how to do it. The company died, my skills lived on... and got better and better.

It took me a while after learning web design (html/css) to actually start learning programming (web application, storing "data", user logins, etc). I tinkered with Wordpress, believing it could be a "user" site, but I was mistaken. Sure there are/were hacks for that, but they were hacks/work-arounds and simply not-what-wordpress-was-indended-to-be. Wordpress is for blogs/content. Plain and simple.

I wanted more. I had a web application idea that I thought would change the way restaurants hire their service staff. I tested it with my basic html/css skills, had great initial results, and found a technical (programmer) cofounder as a result. He was awesome. We were featured on CNN. Things looked great.

Until... cash-flow was a no-flow. Business? I think not. More like an avid hobby. We had the idea for a business just no business. Naturally, my partner had to find a means of income so I was left with the idea on its own.

Remember how I said everything we do has 2 choices. Well I tried the convincing. Now it was time to try the learning. I opted to learn and haven't looked back since. I tried almost every language out there: PHP, Ruby on Rails, SQL, Objective C, C++, Java, Javascript. I was lost.

Then, I tried Python. I was hooked. It was so easy. So simple. So elegant.

Then, I tried Django. Even more hooked. Made from python & made for web applications. It powers Instagram.com & Pinterest.com (two of the hottest web apps right now?).

Then, I tried Bootstrap. Simple and easy front-end design (html & css) that is super easy to use, mobile-ready, and overall... incredible.

Python, Django, and Bootstrap are truly changing the way the world builds web applications. I believe it's because of the simplicity to learn, the sheer power behind them, and, most of all, the plethora of resources to aid anyone in building their web projects (from packages to tutorials to q&a sites).

I relaunched my original venture with my new found skills. That wasn't enough. It didn't compel me as it once had. I started imagining all the possibilities of all the ideas I've always wanted to implement. Now I could. Which one to start with? There were so many good ideas...

Then another idea, a new & fresh idea, started brewing. I started to believe in the power of learning these skills. What would it mean if other non-technical entrepreneurs could learn? What would it mean if ideas were executed quickly, revenue models proven, all prior to approaching the highly sought-after programmers? What would it mean if entrepreneurs became coders?

And so. Coding for Entrepreneurs was born.

    Misleading Title

    I appreciate the instructor's effort, but this tutorial is very basic and has nothing to do with the title. The title is misleading.

    • Nicole Reicher

    He knows his stuff... but -

    You can clearly tell Justin knows his stuff. But the quality of the videos are so poor that I have to squint and guess what he is typing. He does not explain what he is doing, for the most part, you just really follow along. If you are squinting you just guess what he is typing and your tags might work if you get lucky. He goes really fast but I like that I don't have to wait for him to spit things out like some other courses. If the quality of the videos were better and he explained why and when you do something I would give it 5 stars.

    • Lori Grace

    Informative

    If you know nothing about web design this class really helps a lot. Downside: the videos are blurry and you can't always see what he is typing when he types it. However, he does provide copies for you. He has a nice voice.

    Good Basic Course, but hard to follow

    I got the finished product but it was really hard to read the text on the screen. There were a lot of times I had to Google how to do a certain code since I couldn't read it. Also, the instructor went a little fast and sometimes didn't explain things as clearly as he should have. But, for free, it got the job done just took a little longer.

    Only took me a day!

    Running a small community sports club with no budget for web design, I have been trying to teach myself how to do this. I thought this course was really easy to follow and clearly explained and I found it much easier than the teach-myself-from-books method! Being able to pause the videos when I needed to and go back and listen/watch again if I missed something was really useful. I now have a basic template for my website. Brilliant!
