Currently women and non-binaries are underrepresented in the IT world. Our aim is to provide an environment that inspires more women and non-binaries to study programming and enter the world of IT. 

This course offers a good base for working as a web developer. During the course the participants will be able to network with and be inspired by other women who are just starting their journeys into programming and with women who have already established themselves within the field. After completion of the course, the participants can seek further education or internships. Since there is a shortage of professionals in the field of IT Programming, there are good chances for getting a job or internship after the completion of the course.

An education for you who:
Want to work with web programming and web development
Have graduated High School
Is over 18 years of age

The course provides basic skills and knowledge in web development. We work partially in teams of 2-4 participants in each team and partially individually. The course will often be project based where most of the teaching is online. Online teaching will sometimes alternate with guest lectures online as well as two physical meetings at Sundsgårdens Folkhögskola. Together we will learn about HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and the teams will then be able to deepen their understanding and sharpen their skills within these areas of web development. The course is taught from a beginner perspective. We will discuss the basics of programming, what programming is, and what it can be used for. Starting from basics we will then work our way up to more advanced tools. To a large extent, the individual and teams will search for information on their own since this is such a rapidly changing industry and knowing how to find required information is vital.

Beyond just theory and practice we will at times have guest lecturers. Guest lectures include IKEA, among others. We follow a syllabus with different modules where we work individually, in teams, and as a whole class depending on the course content. Majority of the course will be online. By the end of the course the participants will have the skills and knowledge required to create a portfolio that showcases several of the projects created throughout the course.
