Web.Comp is a web competition for school students. We’ll teach you how to build a website as we go along, rather than expecting you to be an expert already.
Web.Comp 2020 will run for 5 weeks, starting from October 26th 2020. Each week, we'll release interactive notes with the information you'll need to complete the week's web design challenges. The last week will be a web design tournament where you can submit your own design and vote on everyone else's!
Web.Comp teaches you HTML/CSS and JS, the powerful building blocks needed to build a website from scratch. Learning to write HTML/CSS and JS by hand gives you full control over the look and interactivity of your site, so you can implement your web designs exactly as you imagined them!
You'll learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and how the internet works. We'll also teach you how to apply design principles to transform design briefs into digital creations. Recommended for students with little or no HTML/CSS experience.View more
Looking for a fast-paced introduction to web design? This stream includes a refresher of the Beginners material and expands to cover some more advanced topics. Recommended for students who have already completed one of our HTML/CSS courses or competitions.View more
Check out student designs submitted to past Web.Comp Design Tournaments. Students with no previous coding experience were given the HTML for "The Plant Warehouse" (a fictional plant sale) in Beginners, and "gBay" (a fictional online marketplace) in Intermediate, which they styled using the web design skills they'd learned in the previous four weeks!
Our problem-based learning approach matches each new concept with a problem so you learn by doing!
