Tomas is a great entrepreneur & designer. I've been reading his blog Despreneur for years now and it's filled with great insights. He also co-wrote the Mobile Design Book (http://mobiledesignbook.com/) which has helped me tremendously as a non-technical, non-designer. Highly recommend this course - it's filled with lots of in-depth content and resources. Thanks Tomas!

Little question: What's the expected level of the reader? Let's say I'm the typical full-stack engineer, I know enough HTML/CSS to get around building a website that doesn't look too terrible with Bootstrap, when I see that the first lesson is "What is HTML & CSS", I'm just wondering if this is addressing pure beginners ? Also a tiny note: It would be lovely to know how long each step of the course can take - an hour? 3 ? 6? It might be pretty important for a 9 to 5-er doing that at night. But overall, that looks lovely and I'll get into the course asap!

@albandum hi Alban, great feedback. This little course is targeting total beginners so you might​ not learn much if you've been in the web design industry. However, I'd like to hear your honest feedback if you decide to take the course.

@alfred_lua thanks Alfred! I really wanted to help other people to get started in web design and an idea of a simple course to show the essentials was the winner.

It's such a great thing to see this course coming to reality! Tomas has been a big inspiration for me to be part of the tech world & learn to constantly evolve my skills in the different areas. I'm looking forward to a course from him on remote working & creating global network!
