Question from llk
I would be using a work laptop for the course with several security blocks and I would have to get permission to download anything, is there a way I can find out what programs would need to be downloaded so I can see if I can do it before I pay for the class?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! For this workshop, the instructors either use Sublime Text or VS Code so it will be best for you to see if you can download both programs.

I was very disappointed in the class. It should have been called Web Design 101 not Programming for Non-Programmers. What was presented did not match the description of the course nor my expectations. I left at the first break.
