Orange Course Pilot
Event on 2014-06-21 10:00:00
You can make a website in less than one day, without having to pay developers thousands of dollars. We'll teach you how.
The Orange Course introduces you to a set of free online tools without having to know tech-jargon such as HTML, JS, CSS and HTTP. No coding required.
In one weekend you will make an e-commerce website, a blog, a portfolio, and a landing page. You will also understand all necessary technical terminology and tricks to properly create, outsource and support your projects online.
Things to bring:
- A laptop computer (please contact us if you do not have one, we do have a rental service)
- A laptop charger
- Lots of enthusiasm
I'm not a tech-y person! Is this the right course for me?
You're in the right place! Orange Course is designed to help people from a non-tech background so that you don't have to pay developers thousands of dollars to complete simple tasks that you can do yourself, with the right knowlege and tools.
The Orange Course is specifically designed to have NO code whatsoever – we will not be teaching basic coding practices. However, we will be offering courses in the future for people who want to learn how to code for web development – stay tuned by subscribing to our email list at effix.com/courses/subscribe.
What does "Pilot" mean?
This is the first event of its kind in Toronto, and we have offered a steep discount to attendees. We will be asking for your feedback after the completion of the course so that we can continue to grow our services to best suit your needs.
Do you have to be a startup founder or have business idea to attend this course?
