What People are Saying About Our Programs

It was a very enjoyable experience and I learned skills that I feel will be very helpful to me when I go into the work world.  This was not just another assignment that was given in class but one that will be something I can add to my resume.

I think this was a great experience.  Learning how to design and develop a website is a great skill to have.  The experience of working with a real client was a great learning experience because it was more than an academic project.  It was a real life experience.  

Max Nova

I thought this was a great opportunity because I've been trying to find a site to make a personal page.  Now, I also have the ability to design a professional page which gives me extra skills for my job application process.  I hope I can continue to work with Variable Action.

Thanks to Zesty.  I learned a lot-- both to create a website and to meet the needs of a client.  This will help me a lot in the future.  Thank you for your help!

Having used other web editors like Webs I really appreciate Zesty's ability to not only fill in templates but to also customize the templates themselves.  I would recommend Zesty to other web designers who are just starting out like myself.  

Grayson Graham
Zesty Incubator Student

At first I was worried about this project because I have no website experience.  I was surprised how easy and user-friendly the Zesty program was.  Each time I added or updated a page I was learning more and more about how to manage a website.  Overall, this project was one of the best things I did all semester.
