A free 3-day intensive workshop for students who want to work in the web industry.


Our next flagship event will take place in Harrogate, UK on 27th – 29th January 2016, and applications are now open.

We cover skills and principles which are key to becoming a web professional – things like CSS-preprocessing, version control, and responsive design. A full schedule will be released soon.

Teachers and Professionals

Teachers and academics who want to know more about what we’re up to and how we can help your students are encouraged to get in touch.

We’re also keen to speak to web professionals and companies who are willing to support our future events through sponsorship or other ways – drop us an email if you interested in getting involved.

Previous years

Work in the Web runs in January of each year; 2015 was the second event we have run, and it was a huge success. Here’s a few things people have said about us in previous years:

Last day of @workintheweb. It’s been inspiring. As an educator, I wish more companies put as much effort into education as this. Yay, @mixd!
