No coding experience? Learn the fundamentals of coding and find out more about what it's like to be a developer. Already a coder? Refresh your coding skills and recharge your coding career. Budding entrepreneur? Build your MVP in only 12 weeks…while keeping your day job.


The Web App Builder course is our part-time solution for entrepreneurs and coders wanting to upskill. Become a confident coder, capable of building any website using Ruby on Rails. As you learn, you’ll build a sample web application, and in the final month, have the opportunity to build your own web app from scratch with the assistance and guidance of our expert instructors.




This course requires no prior knowledge.




Please come to the workshop with a laptop and notebook/pen. You’ll want to take notes while leaving your laptop completely free for code. You’ll be fine with an Apple, Microsoft or Linux laptop for this course.

You may also want to download a more sophisticated text editor to make your coding experience a little smoother. If you’re not aware of any, Atom or Sublime Text should be a great start.
