What People are Saying About Our Programs

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!

Lali Verges Canadell

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.

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.

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

Great experience. Very helpful assistance, and extremely fun project.  I enjoyed looking at web design from a marketing standpoint.  I feel like this is a good experience for future endeavors.  

Michael Kennedy

Working with Zesty gave me the opportunity to work in the developing of a website for a real life client, which increased my knowledge of the different steps that are needed to do a website, but above everything else gave me the opportunity to listen to the client and apply her view to my work.  Thank you Zesty for this opportunity.  

Gabriela Bojorquez
Zesty Incubator Student

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.
