"My favorite thing about being involved with HackCville was learning something new and challenging. Whenever I start coding on my personal site, its so addicting! Its been really nice to have that feeling of truly wanting to learn. This experience has been so different from the norm that I'm very involved with the process."
- Chapman Monroe, Wireframe Program Graduate

Learn the modern web designer's toolkit

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

Design, build, and launch your own personal website

You'll use the skills you learn to design, build, and launch your own personal website by the end of the program. You'll also learn how to start using your new skills to freelance and make websites for other people.

"I really enjoyed the actual skill I learned the most which has introduced me to something new I never would have learned otherwise. Seeing a bunch of random code and letters turn into an actual website is really cool, and a skill I now possess. By the end of the program I will have a personal site and will have worked on designing sites for some other cool challenges."
- Eric Weltz, Wireframe Program Graduate
"HackCville provides an awesome community of talented and passionate peers and a welcoming clubhouse in which to do work or hang out. Overall, it's an awesome community filled with bright people who like to get shit done, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for exactly that."
- Anna Kuno, HackCville Member
