The workshop at a glance


Spend a weekend with Meeum and you have real, marketable skills by the time you leave.


You’ll be amazed by what you’ll learn with us in just a few days, and where you can go with this. Not only do we cover HTML and CSS in depth, we also delve into JavaScript, SEO, version control (git) and accessibility among other things.


This class is aimed at beginners who have no experience with coding.


Perfect for Small Business owners, School Teachers, hobbyists, bloggers, artists, designers and anyone curious about the wide and wonderful world of building websites.


By the end of the workshop, you’ll have the skills and know-how to be able to edit Front End code within a huge array of Content Management Systems, including WordPress, Shopify, Squarespace and others.


We are passionate about teaching the foundations of coding, teaching it well and giving you the confidence to take it where you want.


We don’t make things complicated when they can be easily understood. This is a world, a skill-set and an opportunity that is open to everyone.


We’re ready to get you started, we’re serious about how a little bit of code knowledge can go a long way.


Anyone can do this.
