HTML+CSS for SPA developers

Many developers, working effectively with Angular, React, and other competing tools, have learned bits and pieces of HTML and CSS on-the-fly during their work. In this workshop course, students will supplement their ad hoc knowledge with a more complete and intentional understanding of how to use the core Web technologies of HTML5 and CSS3 most effectively.

  • Experience with some HTML and CSS.
  • A computer: this is a hands-on workshop.
  • Editor and other tools to code HTML and CSS.
  • Modern Web browsers, such as current Chrome or Firefox.

Proven results

We have trained thousands of developers at hundreds of companies, including numerous global leaders.

Our instructors have extensive Angular development experience, so much so that we use the phrase "developer/instructor". Meet some of them here:

Kyle Cordes

Kyle has worked on web applications since the late 1990s, including line-of-business, low-level infrastructure, and enterprise data streaming systems. Kyle has led numerous projects with a wide variety of development tools and libraries. Kyle created Angular Boot Camp in late 2013.

Bill Odom

Bill has been a software designer, developer, or systems architect for over two decades. Most recently, Bill has served as a consultant and senior software developer for Fortune 1000 firms in the Midwest.

Paul leads software projects at Oasis Digital and works to spread state-of-the-art Angular techniques both in these projects and across the development community as a speaker and panelist.

Training FAQs

Q: Is this taught "in person"?
A: We offer training both in-person and online via remote conferencing.
Q: How does the remote option work?
A: Much like an in-person class, it is conducted by our expert trainers, in real time. The trainers can answer questions, assist with trouble students are having, etc. We strive to offer as much of the in-person experience as possible, online.
Q: Are there open enrollment public classes?
A: We currently only offer an open-enrollment "public" class for our flagship Angular Boot Camp.
Q: How does the recorded class work?
A: In a recorded class, the biggest obstacle is the lack of live question-and-answer To deliver a great result, we practice teaching with live groups before creating the recorded class. In this way, we aim to answer as many of the common (and less common) questions as possible. We also do as much "live coding" as makes sense for the topic, in a recorded class.
Q: Can we schedule a private class any time?
A: Our classes are taught by developers who use the subject technologies in their daily work, so we don't assign "any" available developer/trainer to any particular class, but only to classes with a strong experience and knowledge match. Please contact us to arrange a date.

Two ways to learn

1) Online, recorded course

Coming soon

For some of our class topics, we are working on an online course offering. It will have numerous short video segments, teaching each topic in detail, plus longer segments in which we demonstrate the techniques in the use.

This format makes it possible for us to provide great depth of content, while as a viewer you can carefully study the portions of interest, and skip those of less interest; or rewatch the live coding example segments to pick up more nuances.

This content is still in development - if you're interested please contact us (using the form, or contact information at the bottom of the page).

2) Private workshop

Available now!

For corporate groups and other organizations, we offer live, in-person instruction. These teams typically have advanced needs and are looking for hands-on assistance, so for larger groups we send two expert instructors. Each private class is preceded by a technical discussion so that we can understand your needs and customize the content to deliver maximum value.
