A Few Student Testimonials

If you are looking to get into web design or web development and are looking for a course, look no further. I took the We Rock DM web development cohort, and couldn’t have left with more experience. Daniel and Tricia, the instructors, are the real deal. They will walk you down every step of how to design and build a web site from the ground up and how to make it live. The same amount of knowledge as a web development bootcamp in a major university at a fraction of the cost and the best instructors you could ask for.

Amin Siman

I’ve taken two courses taught by Daniel and Tricia and can’t speak highly enough about them. I have been absolutely blown away by their expertise! These two make web design and development fun, interactive, and exciting! Their friendly dispositions and small class sizes make learning the material easy and ensure that each student gets the support needed to succeed. They walk through individual student questions within the class so everyone benefits and can refer questions in the class recordings later if needed. They’ve successfully cultivated a learning environment in which no one feels silly for asking questions or asking for help. Bits of the course also included learning actual CSS coding to supplement the WordPress functionality, which was super cool! They provide many additional resources to assist with understanding and practicing concepts and leave students with an e-book recapping the skills and tools leveraged for future reference. In just a few weeks they’ve empowered me to build incredible, functional, and beautiful websites. I would recommend their courses to ANYONE who wants to learn more about WordPress web development or needs help building a website of their own!
