Prototype
Learn to make apps without writing any code
Meets Mondays, 4:30 - 6:30 pm, only for 4 weeks
No application required - just sign up!
You can build much more than you think without knowing anything about code.
Over the last several years, hundreds of free (or cheap) online "no-code" tools have launched, enabling anyone who knows how to copy and paste or drag and drop to create web and mobile apps. This means that for many ideas, you don't need to know anything about how to code to create fully-functional websites and apps.

No-code tools can be connected together to recreate apps like Uber or Airbnb without writing any code at all. We'll teach you how.
Learn how to make your ideas come to life.
This summer, HackCville launched two new initiatives entirely with no-code tools:

1) savethecorner.com, our initiative to help our Corner business neighbors survive COVID-19
2) clubsatuva.com, an entirely online activities fair for all undergrad CIOs at UVA

Both of these ideas were discussed one day and built the next. You'll learn how to take your ideas and launch them quickly and easily, too.
Prototype has no application and is half as long as our other skills courses.
Most of our Skills Courses last 10-weeks. They're perfect if you know you want to dive into a particular skill and get up that skill's learning curve fast.

We recommend Prototype if you're not sure where to start. It's only $35 and 4 weeks long, so it's a perfect way to get started at HackCville to get a taste of what you can learn to build with modern tools and tech.

Fees & Accessibility
Course Fee: $35
Prototype is just $35 for 4, 2-hour workshops. (That's only ~$4/hour.) We've dropped the price for Fall 2020 to ensure our courses remain accessible to all in these challenging times, and to reflect that we know online courses aren't the same as being in-person.

We are committed to making our courses accessible to all. We reduce or eliminate the program fee to all students who need it, no questions asked. Our aim is to enable everyone who wants to learn and join the HackCville community.

We think you'll love HackCville, but if you decide you need to drop, you may request a refund within 10 days of your course's first workshop meeting time. You'll receive a full refund, less a $10 operations fee. Beyond this date, no refunds will be given.
Meeting Times
All of our courses meet once a week for 2 hours. Prototype starts the fourth week of UVA classes (September 13) and continues weekly for 4 sessions. Courses expect a 4-6 hour/week commitment.

Outside of the 2 hours in your workshop meeting time, you can expect to meet with your instructor weekly for labs (at flexible times) and to spend some time working with your classmates on projects.

We know how to do online teaching right.
Our Skills Courses will be all-online for the foreseeable future to protect the health of our students and instructors. Teaching online is not new for us - we know how to make online courses fun, engaging, and interactive. (We know you can't just film a traditional lecture and hope for the best.) We've modified our curriculum and drastically changed our instructor training to ensure every student has an awesome experience.
