I’m Shane!

I start building poker websites out of my dorm room. I soon realized many local companies were struggling to build their online presence and websites, and I created 1stlabs to help build websites for small businesses. Since then, I’ve launched helpified and several other projects.

I’m Shruti!

I’ve built a successful million dollar ecommerce lifestyle business finding trending products and arbitraging them across markets. As a med school dropout, I’m self taught in web development, business, and basic programming. Too cheap to hire a programmer, I’ve built every site for every business and project I’ve worked on, and I know how hard learning how to build sites can be. I love helping others build and create awesome things, and I can’t wait to see the awesome things you build when you learn how to build a website!

Why learn web Development?

Free yourself from developers

Stop being so reliant on developers every time you need a quick fix or change to your website. Not only is it slower to have to ask your developer to change something for you, but developers are expensive. Save your money and time with our free course.

Build and Create

Interested in building websites but don’t have the money to pay a professional web developer and don’t want to use a cheap, tacky, generic free website builder? We’ll teach you how to make beautiful, professional looking, unique sites customized for your preferences. Using the same tools as some of the biggest websites on the net, you’ll soon be able to quickly put up your own website.

Quickly prototype new ideas

The most frustrating part about being a non-technical entrepreneur, internet marketer, or employee is not being able to rapidly test out new ideas. You’ll learn how to quickly build and advertise websites so that you can test your ideas and figure out what works before putting your money into it.
