The Event


You will be learning how to take advantage of some very user-friendly tools for designing website graphics and layouts. No matter how little experience you have, I assure you that this is MUCH easier than you ever imagined.

Do you have a sneaky feeling that tech has made web-design super easy? You're Right!

Websites are now easier than ever to build and maintain. I can teach you by building your website with you. Stop being hoodwinked with geek speaking techies and take control of your online presence. No matter how technophobic... or "pre-tech"... or clueless you may feel... I am patient, and understanding... and I use plain English. You will go home informed and empowered. You'll learn how to take charge of your website text content and graphics using very simple tools.

Your workshop will include 1 year of free hosting and 15mins of free online/telephone support per month, thereafter AppCity support is charged at R500/hour. Limited to 2 people per workshop. (Both people must be from or representing the same business venture).

I'm excited to see your face light up at the end of the day with the knowledge and power you need to control your online presence.
