3 Day Workshop Schedule

madsWe will not be breaking down the schedule into specific time slots for coffee breaks, but instead only focus on the topics that will be covered on the specific days. Light snacks will be available each morning along with some hot and cold beverages, a lunch break between 1 - 2 pm, with beverages in the afternoon practical session.

As mentioned before, your preparation for this Web Workshop will start at least 5 days before starting DAY 1. Each delegate will be required to have a specific website project that they need to complete during the Web Workshop. You will be provided with a development website on which you will be able to do your practical work. Once completed and ready, you will be assisted in transferring the website created during the Web Workshop to a live domain.
