Wireframe - Web Design Program - HackCville


HackCville’s Web Design Program

Wireframe is a 12-week program that teaches the basics of web design through hands-on projects and personal mentorship. Learn more about Wireframe below, or learn more about all of HackCville’s programs here.

Program Details

Students learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and Javascript through small website-building challenges. Students also learn about the various online resources and tools that can help them independently continue their learning after the program is over.

Graduates walk away with practical skills, a small portfolio of work, and support from HackCville’s wide network of alumni and company partners to help them find internships, full-time, or freelance work. Each student will complete their own personal website as their final project.

There are two Wireframe sections for Spring 2017, both starting the week of February 5:


  1. Wireframe CS: for those with at least an introductory knowledge of computer science (UVA CS1110 or equivalent). Wireframe CS meets Wednesdays 5-7pm and Sundays 3-5pm.
  2. Wireframe: for those with no computer science background. Wireframe meets Tuesdays 5-7pm and Sundays 3-5pm.

No experience in HTML, CSS, and Javascript is required or expected for either Wireframe CS or Wireframe.
