General Assembly: Intro to Coding for Marketers

Why should everyone learn how to code? “Because it teaches you how to think.” - Steve Jobs

Are you a marketer, and you need to start getting your hands dirty with HTML? Are you a marketer who is finding the web developers you work with keep saying things that don't make any sense? Are you keen to get ahead with best practice web design but feel like you can't really even keep up? It's probably time you beefed up your understanding of coding to integrate it into your marketing skill set.

In this workshop, you'll:

  • Understand key web concepts like HTML and CSS. 

  • Build up an arsenal of free and easy tools to help you solve code problems, prototype and communicate. 

  • Increase your vocabulary and understanding of essential web coding principles.

  • Get some hands-on practice with techniques and know where to go to learn more.

Understanding coding will give you marketing superpowers. Bring your cape!

Presented by: Phillip Peet, Web Designer
