- Web Development for Business Owners
September 9, 2017 - September 16, 2017
1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs are visionaries. But sometimes, it’s difficult to translate that vision into words that web developers and designers can understand.
You try to communicate your ideas but you get different results every time. You’re wasting precious time and resources when you need to revise your project again and again. It’s frustrating! Not just for you but for the developers as well.
Know the feeling? Then this workshop is for you.
Tech4NonTech is a 2-part series:
- Web Development for Business Owners (Sept. 9): A non-technical person’s intro to the world of web development and web design.
- Engaging with Developers for Web Projects (Sept. 16): A non-technical person’s guide to working best with developers
The first part will equip participants with a basic knowledge of Web Development and Web Design so they understand the different pieces they need to assemble their vision.
The second part will equip participants with a basic knowledge of Software Project methodologies so they can work well with the developers who will be executing their vision.
This workshop series is for non-technical business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs, and aspiring start-up owners who wish to better communicate their vision and design idea to web designers and developers.
On both workshops, there will be a panel Q & A session with speakers EJ Arboleda and Jay Fajardo.
