Front-End Course

The course contains basics of front-end development: HTML, CSS, JS, and front-end frameworks.

We plan to decrease the amount of lectures in favor of collective discussions, team projects & collective work. And give all power & responsibility to students.

You can use these materials for self-education as well.


Admission for the main course was open until 13 Jan 2019 and now is closed as the student's group is full and the course was started. The only alternative for now - is our p2p course.

Since we would like to support ambitious students who couldn't join the main course, we providing peer-to-peer learning (hereinafter referred to as p2p) based on the online part (Stage0) of the main course.

A p2p group has no specific limitations on the number of students and not so fitted to strict deadlines as the main group is.

The common factor of Peer teaching is that knowledge is shared not by an instructor or other person of authority. It’s all about people on the same level teaching each other what they know. Learners Teaching Learners.

As you could understand from the context of p2p meaning - it is a great possibility to grow up both as a student and teacher. Especially this course, you will learn how to correctly check the other students job.

If you have any questions you can ask us in one of our chats.

P.S. You should know

If you are willing to participate in the course, you need to understand that you’ll spend a lot of time building something big together — a new way of learning and collaborating. You’ll become part of a small family and should prepare yourself to find new friends and to invest a lot in this friendship (as you should in any friendship).

Final task of this course will be to split into groups and create new courses like that (and we’ll never stop).

Our basic rules

  • Respect each other.
  • There is no such thing as a stupid question.
  • Each person learns with their own speed, has different background and personality, please respect this.
  • Communicating and understanding people that are different from you can be beneficial to both parties, provided mutual respect.
  • We are against any discriminations by gender, age, the color of skin, disabilities or any other.
  • We respect intellectual property - there is hard work of an author or a group of authors behind all materials that we use.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
