Course summary

From traditional websites to the latest apps, you'll learn the technologies and skills you need to succeed in this fast growing sector. Front-end interactive design to back-end skeleton and database structures, you'll learn the key aspects of web development and programming. At the same time, you will apply and develop your skills in HTML, CSS, javascript, PHP and User Experience (UX) through hands-on training in small classes. From these firm foundations, you will explore design principles and technical solutions to online and social media marketing challenges, covering search engine optimisation (SEO), web analytics and campaign management.
