The Website Coding for Beginners course will be run by Jonathan Saipe.
Back in the mid 90's, when words like 'browser' and 'web' meant something very different to most people, Jon was already a digital pioneer. Having worked at Publicis as Internet Development Director in the 90's, he launched FIFO Digital Media – a web design agency – in 1999. He formed Emarketeers less than a decade later.
Jonathan brings his wealth of web development experience to the web coding course, making it lively, fun and highly interactive!

A very useful course that covered exactly what I was looking for. I now feel comfortable talking about all aspects of modern website coding, and I have a much deeper understanding of HTML. The teacher was very knowledgeable and friendly and did not patronise anyone at any point - which is something of a rarity in IT-related training courses!
Dan Risch, eCommerce Marketing Executive
Very useful and interactive course learning how to put basic web coding principles into practice. Left the class full of ideas!
Sabrina Parkar, Publishing Assistant
Found this course very useful and now appreciate the work and time that goes into coding. It was a great confidence booster for my own development and will help when feeding back to our developers too.
