  • “Indispensable for diving into new territories. Noble helps make sense of web development for someone who is coming into it fresh. Better than starting with online courses or books.”

    Valerie Clementi

    Learned to develop websites

  • “The class is very informative and a great way to introduce yourself to what Web Development really is. The instructor's extensive experience allows you to ask questions that go beyond what is covered in the book, making it a truly valuable class.”

    Thomas Egan

  • “I signed up for the Web Development Certificate. This was the first class of many and it was great! They covered many topics and Victoria, my teacher, did an excellent job explaining everything. I had zero experience going into the class and I came out of it knowing a lot. I highly recommend Noble Desktop.”

    Steve Fox

    Became a web developer by completing the Web Development Certificate

  • “Noble has always been my "go to" for Adobe training. After taking most of the classes in the Web Development program, I'm convinced that Noble should be everyone's first choice for these, too. It's amazing how easy it is to take what you learn in class and immediately apply it to your own projects.”

    MaryRose Devine

  • “As a long-time refugee of print design, I took the plunge and invested in my career by taking the web certificate. I feel like it really paid off. I felt empowered and possessed the tools to design and build modern, responsive web sites. The aspect I most appreciated was learning up-to-date best practices for executing modern web designs. Noble’s original step-by-step books are second to none: easy to follow and handy references to fall back on while working on a project. The instructors bring their own valuable real-world experience and are eager to help and share their knowledge.”

    Dylan Rogers

    Learned comprehensive HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and more in the web certificate program

  • “I have completed 2 certificate programs. A 90-hour front-end web design certificate that included classes in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and jQuery, HTML email, Photoshop for web, and mobile and responsive web design. The second certificate built onto the first, and added a 30-hour back-end web development program which included PHP, MySQL, and WordPress. I learned tons, and the teachers were excellent. The course books are such a valuable tool to use with my projects. I was able to code a WordPress theme from scratch, and was even asked to speak at this past summer’s Wordcamp NYC. The instructors know their stuff, and really make learning fun. Nothing is rushed, and they take time to answer all questions. These courses were a very worthwhile investment—would recommend to anyone.”

    Gail Kearney

    Completed the Web Design and Development Certificates

  • “The instructors are top notch; very approachable and they know their stuff. Their class format is see and do; they explain an exercise step by step then have you complete it and are there to help you if you get stuck. I found the hands-on approach very effective. The exercises are modular and build on previous ones and every time you complete one you've made something happen that you didn't know how to do 30 minutes ago. That's a great feeling and helps keep you engaged in what you're learning. Piece by piece you're building practical skills that you can apply immediately.”

    Jonathon Powell

    Gained front-end web design & development skills in the web certificate

Learn Through Real-world Projects

“Overall, I’m always amazed at the talent of your instructors and comprehensiveness of your course materials. I thoroughly enjoy the theory/academic material, but mostly I'm impressed by your emphasis on translating these tools to real-world, practical applications.”
Benjamine Heath, Web Developer

Custom Workbook Included with Every Class

“Wonderful introduction for beginners and includes a very handy exercise book with explicit, do-it-yourself steps (thankfully the opposite of guidebooks written by robotic, removed pros).”
Ali Gross, Workman Publishing

Web development training workbooks included with every class

Learn Web Development Fundamentals

“After coming to this class not knowing anything about HTML or CSS, I am amazed at how much I am taking away. The exercises in the coursebook take users through each step with such good explanation that learning this new language was made easy. I now want to take every class Noble Desktop has!”
Julie Berger, Editor
