Students are expected to have a general knowledge of computers, opening, saving files, etc. Students will need a personal laptop computer for this course. Macs are highly encouraged (but commands are given for PC Windows as well). Students can expect to commit to a minimum of 5 - 6 hours per week on this course with approximately 1.5 - 2 hours watching videos and coding exercises and another 4 hours working on labs and building a personal site project each week. However the course is self paced so students can do more and move at a faster pace if desired. These time estimates are merely a baseline and suggested minimum amount of weekly engagement.
