Web Development 101
If you're dying to learn how to make a website but don't know where to start, this is the class for you. We've designed a curriculum where you'll work closely with other students to learn what the Internet is, how it works and how you can get your ideas out there. We take a project-based approach, so our goal is that by the end of the class, you'll have made some like-minded friends and built a live website. No programming experience required!
At least 6 weekly meetings, Friday 1 - 2:30 p.m. or Thursday 8 - 9:30 p.m. starting 9/19/2013.Class applications are now closed.

Rafi KhanCo-Director YC'15Rafi hopped on the code game back in junior year of high school, going on to work on the Crisis Map at Google this summer and serve as Tech Director of GAKKO. Now he dwells at a curious intersection of app development, design frenzy and algorithmic implementation—you can check out his projects here. A connoisseur of fine wit, Rafi spends him time dancing with Yale Jashan Bhangra, crafting puns and just walking around, checkin' stuff out.
Zack Reneau-WedeenCo-Director, YC'14Zack has several years experience in web development, most recently through his roles at Google and Brewster. Besides things technological, he enjoys playing soccer, the beach, PG-rated movies starring Martin Lawrence, and the theory of evolution. Favorite keyboard-side snack: hot tea and a stalk of raw rhubarb; most overheard phrase: "I suppose..."; biggest pet peeve: american cheese.
Caroline LesterScaling, Big-data, Pivots, Agility, YC'14Caroline is all about the ladies. Specifically, ladies in entrepreneurship. At just six years old, she began innovating, problem-solving, and noticing when niche markets should be explored (her lemonade stand outside the entrance to the Ryder Cup made tens of dollars). Since then, she's branched out of the service industry and into both research - for the Sloan School and The Arthur Rock Center for Entrepreneurship at Harvard Business School - and starting her own non-profit project. Interests include Law and Order SVU, the sustainable food movement, and skiing.
Max PommierDesign, Brand, YC'14Max has been tinkering with design for awhile now, in its various graphic, brand, layout, print, web, theatrical, production, intelligent, and non-intelligent shapes. He is rather fond of long nights on Photoshop, misusing idioms, and eating banana peppers for breakfast.
Bay GrossCo-founder, Adviser, YC '13Bay, a former co-director of HackYale, has been developing web applications for over three years, most recently through his role as a (former) co-founder at Amicus and product management intern at Google. He enjoys the internet, backpacking, and a well-placed oxford comma. When pressed to choose a profile picture, he elected for one that made it look like he could sail. He cannot.
Will GaybrickAdvisor, Co-founder emeritus, YLS '12Since transitioning from The Blackstone Group to the world of technology startups three years ago, Will has been an engineer at several companies including Hunch, Jumo, and Milewise. Currently, he is an investor and engineer at Thrive Capital, a NYC based venture capital and private equity firm. Will enjoys piano, math, and combing his hair.
Miles GrimshawOutreach, Growth, YC'13Miles, also a former co-director, isn't a coder (yet), but he has been hustlin' and learning about the tech game ever since he interned at Matrix Partners, an early stage VC firm in Boston. He is an avid TEDster and curator of last year's inaugural TEDxYale. He enjoys traveling, new adventures, and spending time with his siblings. He's always eager to meet awesome people, so if you're awesome, please drop him a line: miles at hackyale dot com.
