Web Design Curriculum for 2017-2018

May 19, 2017

I started building websites in 1994 and started teaching web design in 2000. Since even the early 2000’s (I won’t even talk about the 1990’s!) much has changed when it comes to building web sites!

Helping Teachers Teach Web Design

March 1, 2017

Still today, I personally handle the support request because it helps me direct my developers to make StudioWeb even better. Teachers win because they deal with me directly, and StudioWeb benefits from direct feedback that’s been so valuable over the years.
