Course details for
web page coding at the highest standard

This course is meant for HTML coders

I already know HTML, is this course for me?

Yes! In fact, at least some basic knowledge of HTML is required to participate in this course.

See, to create a basic web page using HTML and CSS is easy. But to code cutting edge websites efficiently, that is often very hard and it requires skill and knowledge of concepts such as HTML5, progressive enhancement, semantic coding, validation, accessibility and Search Engine Optimization (SEO). In this course, we're not teaching HTML, but we're teaching development and coding practises that can bring your skill set to a completely different level.

What do I learn in the course Web Page Coding at the Highest Standard?

You will extend your basic knowledge of HTML and CSS with, among others, the following concepts:

  • Semantic coding
  • Progressive enhancement
  • Accessibility
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Web page coding best practices
  • Responsive design

We believe that after this course, you will be convinced that you never really know how to properly code a web page at all before!

Is this course for me?

Are you a graduated or non-graduated fresher? Do you have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS? And most of all, do you have a burning desire to become a real good web developer? Is your English quite good? Yes, then this course is for you! If you already know some JavaScript and/or jQuery, we consider that a bonus!

Your personal information

Please enter your email address, we need to contact you!


Step 2: What you have done?

We realize that you apply to the NDD Academy because you want to learn something new. But to make sure we put you in the right group, please tell us a little about what you already know.

Here's a hint: we do not select the superhero who rates his or her own skills the highest, but we think very highly of people who can realistically assess their own strengths and challenges.

Your education and skills



Your CV

It is completely optional (really!), but if you like you can upload your complete CV here.

You can upload a file of up to 4 mb

Some optional question

Q. Where you find references for trouble shooting?


Step 3: What can you do?

At NDD, we know about design and technology. As you undoubtedly know, a good designer needs to have a wicked good technique while a good technologist must always be creative. So please, tell us a bit about your current skills. Though we probably made this point before: being overly confident does not help you to get selected, but being honest and realistic does!

Technologies and software programs

How well versed are you with the following technologies, whether through education, work or self study?

One star mean that you more or less know what a technology is used for, but you never actually used it. With two or three stars you have dabbled in it for a bit, perhaps in school. Four stars mean you have a solid working experience. Five stars? You should be the one teaching the course!



Soft skills

Rate the following skills from one star ("What is that?") to five stars ("So what? I am simply the best!").

Hard skills

Rate the following special skills, anywhere from one star ("What is that?") to five stars ("So what? I am simply the best!").

If there is any software program or technology that you feel especially confident about, but that wasn't in the list? We'd hate to see you frustrated, so we created this box just so you call us about it! (optional)


Last step: Motivation

Almost there... didn't we tell you it would take a while?

Yes this last page is far and away the most important! We like to know what your plans are for the future, and why you'd like to join NDD Academy. Don't think you know what we like to hear. Trust us, you don't! So best thing to do is just to tell it like it is.

Your motivation

In the left column below, you see 10 possible motivations to join the NDD Academy. The order is random. Select the motivations that apply to you, and drag and drop these to the column on the right. Place them in the correct order, with your more important motivation on top. Take this question very seriously - we certainly do!
