Will I learn to code?
No. Coding skills aren’t necessary to build technical intuition. If you are really interested, I recommend going on FreeCodeCamp.org or Code.org to get high-quality instruction for free.
What is the learning experience like?
My style is a mix of hand-holding and tough love. Expect a lot of real-world practice and being put on the spot sometimes — it’s more fun this way anyway… at least for me (*evil laugh*). If you’re looking for something to “binge” instead, you can read my book.
I follow the principle of “i+1” — the rigor will be just out of your comfort zone, but not overwhelming.
I’m in the <insert name> industry. Will you be able to understand my business?
Shouldn’t make a difference, but we’ll know for sure during the interview.
What prior knowledge do I need?
It’s helpful to be business-savvy, but not necessary. Come as you are.
How will I access the course?
It will be on Google Classroom. I will release the learning material (lectures, quizzes, assignments) on the class homepage periodically. We will also schedule live video sessions each week. You won’t need to download any software for the program.
*If your company has a dedicated LMS and they won’t let you use anything else, I can consider using that.
Can I get a discount?
It’s a fair price and it includes direct access to me, so unfortunately I won’t give discounts. In any case, you can access my book, my >4000 word essays, my video lectures, and my podcasts for free.
Can I get training/workshops for my whole team?
Use the same link above to schedule a meeting. 🙂
Which is your favourite animal?
The honey badger.
