Web Programming Comic on Kickstarter

By Maryann Yin Comment

Writer Nate Cooper hopes to raise $2,500 for a 120-page book entitled Website Bootcamp Adventure Comics.

This instructional comic book aims to teach web programming concepts such as HTML, CSS and WordPress Basics in a fun way. The funds will be used to pay artist Kim Gee for the book’s artwork. Above, we’ve embedded a video about the project–what do you think?

Here’s more about the project: “The comic is based upon a manuscript Nate spent writing over several months and has been added to over the course of several weeks teaching real people just like you how to build a website. The ideas contained herein are mostly conceptual with a lot of references to external sources in order to learn more. It’s a kind of tips and tricks version of website building that covers a broad range of topics from HTML to SEO to CMS. By putting it in comic form we hope to make it easier to digest for the causal reader/beginner.”
