Earlier this month It’s Nice That director Will Hudson went on a week-long coding course with our friends at Steer. Here’s how he got on…
At the beginning of July, as most educational institutions were getting ready for the summer break, I went back to school for the first time in six years. Even though it was only for five days and technically it probably should’t be called school, I had one of the most enjoyable weeks in a long time.
The course – led by the excellent Rik Lomas – worked through a number of websites throughout the week, almost all from scratch and all having relevant uses after the week was finished. Although the process initially felt like copying what was written (or in this case typed) on the board, it soon all started to fall into place and within the first few days I felt more than comfortable building html and css, and had a clear understanding as to why certain lines of code (and missing lines of code) resulted in the things they did.
If you’ve ever thought building websites is beyond you, then Steer will prove it isn’t.
