“I recently completed The New York Code & Design Academy’s 16-week Intro to Web Design & Development course, and I have nothing but fantastic things to say about the experience. From the first class, it was apparent that the faculty genuinely cared about the students’ personal growth and development; they were passionate about the course materials and fully invested in our success. If you’re interested in learning the fundamental building blocks of the web from some of the best and brightest in the industry, I highly encourage you to enroll in this course.”

“NYCDA has personable and knowledgeable instructors and the class creates a strong foundation for designing and building websites. I highly recommend it.”
TJ Palladino, 16-Week Evening Student
“I am now able to code and design web pages with ease, while easily able to edit off the top of my head. The class left me with more than a basic understanding of HTML/CSS. Along with Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, and Dreamweaver, it enabled me to become comfortable with programs I was scared to use. Learning back end development (Ruby/Rails) provided a greater understanding of the interaction between what the user sees on a web page or application and the content that is required for it to function properly. Coming from a computer programming background, learning Ruby became second nature to me as I was able to grasp the language quickly. From layout, conception, to final product, the instructors were more than willing to take their time in answering questions. Feedback was provided every step of the way. I feel that with all that I have learned, I can easily and quickly develop web pages and programs with little hesitation.”
