appendTo – the best way to learn web development for your startup

If you’re involved in a startup, you’re likely working crazy-long hours trying to build your product, acquire customers, and get traction.  The last thing you want to do is spend time learning new web technologies.

Well, I’ve got some good news for ya, appendTo can help you learn the hottest new web development languages in a short amount of time.  This way your startup can focus on what its true purpose is.  And of course, by learning these new technologies, you’ll have all the skills you need to write future-proof code that will scale along with your startup.

appendTo has courses that are suited for everyone from a beginner coder to an advanced code monkey.  They offer a variety of public virtual and on-site courses that suit all skill levels.

Specifically, they specialize in providing training for:

  • AngularJS
  • Backbone.Js

  • Git
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • React
  • Responsive Web Design
  • Sass
  • Less

(If you’re not familiar with some of these, trust me when I say that they’re some of the hottest new web technologies out there!)

Now in case you’re wondering,

“Who are these appendTo guys and why should I trust them with my training?”

They have some pretty impressive street cred.  Their client list includes, Lenovo, Zumba, Celebrity Cruises, Pearson, Purdue Pharma and Blackberry.  Those are some major companies!

Now maybe you’re a startup founder that doesn’t have a technical background.  Maybe you specialize in management or finance.  You’ve probably asked yourself if there’s any reason for you to learn to code, since you have developers for that stuff.

Well, luckily you’re not alone.  This topic is discussed in great detail here.  I personally think that it’s becoming more and more important for everyone involved in online-based startups to know at least basic HTML and CSS, maybe even some SQL.  Similarly, Venture capitalist Fred Wilson believes that if you aren’t technical, you should get technical.

Not only can appendTo provide a wide variety of training courses, they also offer consulting services:

  • Code Reviews – they can help you discover and fix bugs in your code.  Their extensive knowledge of software architecture, scalability, reliability and portability can be used to make huge improvements to your code.
