MaGIC Academy: Learn to Code in a Day


As Steve Jobs famously put it “I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer because it teaches you how to think.”

As the internet has become an important aspect of our daily lives, web development has also become one of the most in demand skills. Furthermore, 90% of all future jobs will require digital competencies, and coding is one of the most essential skill to have.

Good news is coding is not only for computer programmers and it is not all about designing or developing web applications. Learning to code not only helps people interact better with technology but helps CEOs or business owners to become much better managers of their tech - teams by understanding the technical architecture.

Key Learnings

  1. Basic web
  3. Java script and bootstrapping

Target Audience

  1. Beginners who want to get started in and know more about web development.
  2. People who work in the designing/marketing field and are looking to hand-code their concepts.
  3. Startups/Business owners who want to have a better understanding and view the technology aspect of their business, that will eventually create better partnerships between marketers and developers that will drive faster, more agile, and better quality product development.
