Who this is for:

This course is for beginner-intermediate level programmers. It is for people who want to get results without going through hours of explanation and background.

Who this is not for:

Since our target audience is beginner-intermediate programmers, we will only demonstrate the fundamentals while limiting background explanation. It isn’t great for advanced programmers who may want more detailed explanations.

This weekend, you will be:

  1. Building a user-login
  2. Building a messaging system
  3. Building a tweet/retweet system
  4. Building a “follow” system

These tools can be re-applied to build a: chat room, booking-system, private login, or any back end system. The skills are transferable to many different types of projects.
