About the Instructor
Hi! My name is Zac and I'm the creator of Web Dev Basics. Since 2007, I’ve been helping companies build and optimize their websites to establish and grow their digital brands. In addition to Web Dev Basics, I also work as a freelance web developer and lead local coding workshops & bootcamps.
Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Web Dev Basics different from similar online courses?
Web Dev Basics strikes a balance between self-led learning, interactive lessons, group interaction, and 1-on-1 attention. While other online coding programs might follow one or two of these approaches, I try to incorporate a variety of formats to help all types of learners succeed.
What will we learn in the courses?
Who is Web Dev Basics for?
I created Web Dev Basics for absolute beginners with zero coding experience and web dev n00bs who are just starting to dabble with frontend development. Whether you're prepping for a coding bootcamp, planning to build a website or app, or just want to have better interactions with software engineers at work, Web Dev Basics is a great place to start.
What is the format for the courses?
Web Dev Basics courses are 4 weeks long and 100% online. Each week you'll focus on a core concept of web development, reading through lessons and examples before tackling exercises based on the material.
To help illustrate concepts, clear up confusion, and provide an interactive learning environment, together we'll do weekly live coding sessions and 1-on-1 video chats. Every course also has a dedicated Slack channel where you can ask questions, collaborate with fellow students, and share your progress.
How do the 1-on-1 video chats work?
You can book a weekly 15 minute video chat with me to discuss your progress, goals, issues, or anything else you'd like to talk about. Time slots are first come, first serve, and I'll share my weekly availability in advance.
What happens after my course ends? Do I lose access to Slack and the other course materials?
Heck no! You'll have full access to Slack, weekly lessons & exercises, and recordings of all the live coding sessions we do throughout the course.
What is your refund policy?
If you cancel before your course's start date, a full refund will be given. No refunds will be given once the course has started.
