Hybrid Web 101: HTML & CSS

This course covers the basics of web development, introducing static webpages and styles. By the end of the semester, students will be able to create their own webpages using the HTML language to build structure, and the CSS language to add style.

Hybrid Web 102: Intro to JavaScript

This course covers the JavaScript programming language in depth, and introduces general programming concepts. By the end of the semester, students will be familiar with basic programming, and will be able to use JavaScript to add interactivity to webpages.

Hybrid Web 103: Advanced JavaScript

This course expands upon the material from Web 102, and dives deeper into more JavaScript concepts. Students will learn about objects, data, functional programming, asynchronous execution, and more! By the end of the semester, students should be able to create an advanced website that connects to an external API and dynamically updates based on real live information.

Since I started Hy-Tech Club, I have learned so much about coding. The curriculum is easy to learn from and the instructors are great to work with.
