Me: what the fucking fuck did you just fucking say you little fuck? Ill have you know i have written at least 4 lines of code, commented once and have a stackoverlfow reputation of -7. I have completed every beginner level udemy course on applied brainfuck mathematics and have worked as a distributed data analyst with excel 03. You are nothing to me, every piece of code i write runs on exactly 3 billion devices and i have an unsuccessful facebook meme page. Bitch.6

I came to my sister's husband, programmer, and asked him for a book to learn how to program. He gave me a giant tome (probably to scare me out) and I read it page by page doing all the tasks. For me it was like a magic, I couldn't believe that I can write something in the notepad and then see computer do stuff because I told it to do so.5
Unsubscribed from Udemy newsletter after receiving too many emails -----> received an email to inform me that I unsubscribed.
Buying courses in Udemy (or similar), is like paying for a gym membership.
Sure there are some who actually use it. But the vast majority is like: "Now that I paid for this, I'm sure I'll get around to using it..."11
What an I doing with my life? What's the meaning of all the efforts? What if I'll make a perfect own project?..
Oh, great, IDE is finally booted on!4
Shortest friendship story-
I randomly posted on a group- "Hey can someone lend me Udemy Account if you have bought The Web Developer Bootcamp by Colt Steele, I am a student and really wish to do the course"
Next minute, I got a pm- "Give me your e-mail id pal, I will gift you the course"
This man in his 50s was so generous. We talked about tech, country and exchanged social handles.
By the way the course is really worth it.10
The best job denial letter I've ever seen was sent to my husband and said:
- We already have too many people named Eugen in our company.3
I've found sites like Udemy/Khanacademy/Codecademy/Brilliant/Edx to be very useful — possibly more useful than expensive education.
But they still need:
1. Better correction/update mechanisms. Human teachers make mistakes and material gets outdated, and while online teachers are rectified faster than classroom teachers, the procedure is still not optimal. Knowledge should be a bit more like a verified wiki.
2. Some have great interactive coding environments, some have great videos, some have awesome texts, some have helpful communities. None has it all. In the end, I don't want to learn a new language by writing code in my browser. It could all be integrated/synced to the point where IDEs have plugins which are synced to online videos, with tests and exercises built in, up to a social network where you could send snippets for review and add reviews to other people's code.
3. Accreditation. Some platforms offer this against payment, but I think those platforms often feel very old school (pun intended), with fixed schedules, marks and enrollments. Self paced is a must.
4. Depth is important. Current online courses are often a bit introductory. We need more advanced courses about algorithms, theoretical computer science, code design, relational algebra, category theory, etc. I get that it's about supply/demand, but we will eventually need to have those topics covered.
I do believe that for CS, full online education will eventually win from the classroom — it's still in its infancy, but has more potential to grow into correct, modern education.10
God damn it udemy, you have courses on the fundamentals of ass wiping but I can't find a good quality c++ from scratch course

Built my first little app and put it on my phone 👶 it's not much and comes mainly from a udemy course, but hey it's a step.9
Was watching Linux videos on YT (got bored) when a 🤬 Udemy (you know what, I’m blocking them right now) ad popped up and it was on how to learn... LINUX!!! This is a total scam!!!! 🤬🤬20
Somebody asked on how to get started on Full Stack web application development.
This is how I got started.
Client side Web Application Development:
• Start with basic HTML, CSS and JS, JSON. For quick learning, see W3Schools for these topic or YouTube it.
• Get a local web server. "200 OK!" webserver chrome extension is a good start. (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...)
• Learn Chrome Dev Tools to debug the pages. YouTube it.
• Get a good IDE. I am very happy with VSCode. You can use it for very serious WebApps.
• Install node.js. Learn NPM package manager. Learn basic node commands.
• Learn complexity of JS file referencing, JS modules in browser. Just learn, don't use it yet, to understand the benefits of code bundlers.
• Learn Webpack code bundler.
• Learn how to make you simple site much faster and using in Mobile using "Progressive Web Apps".
• Now learn to make modular UIs. I love React. Focus on getting the UI code modulear. Create Single Page sites. (You are not there yet to create a Web App) “Create-React-App” started kit is a good starting point.
• Learn to create multi-page site using React-router.
• Learn application state management using Redux.
• Learn to create application decision engine using Redux-Saga.
Practice and master each stage.
Along above, learn git / GitHub (to learn from others code), find good web resources like Medium / Smashing magazine, good YouTube channels etc. I subscribed to some popular Udemy courses too.
Server side Web development:
:) First learn client side Web Application development. Server side learning is another story.3
at the game jam afterparty everyone where trying to speak with my husband, instead of me. I saw human version of blue screens when was asked to list my project team and I didn't mention him.
- A-a-and what did Rik do?
- Oh, he didn't participate, he's a journalist and my +1 here. 😅3
To all udemy instructors that give instructions on configuring a GUI IDE for Linux, Mac and Windows but also give the option and instructions on CLI tool options on respective operating systems.... Thank you... Just... Thank you...2

Imagine if you will, a fictional world outside our own.
In this world, the requirement for getting a drivers licenses is 4 years of research into quantum mechanics.
- Was it interesting? Yeah.
- Did I learn it because I had to? Yup.
- Will I use the harmonic oscillation calculations of a particle when driving my car. Fuck no!
- Did it cost me an ungodly amount of money? It sure did!
- Will some dumb people still say it was useful because it is the minimum (fictional) barrier to entry for driving a car. You bet your sweet ass they will!!!
It was about as useful as any made up requirement, make-work, self-funding, circle-jerking, waste or time and money to feed the pockets of people who are too scared to do actual work so they teach, can be.
I paid all that money to be taught technology that was old when my mother was in school.
In the first year out of school, with only a $300 subscription to PluralSight some uDemy courses and hard work, I learned 100X as much as everything they put in front of me in school.
School has its place.
Children who don't understand the importance of learning and need their hand help.
Adult children (some of which on on their 3rd or 4th degree) who also need their hand held.
People too afraid to enter the real world.
I would do it again because it is the minimum requirement of entry, but thats nothing more than a bullshit make-work project.
Play their game as long as you need to. Keep your own game in mind. Don't drink the koolaid, just fake a sip. Then when the time is right, play by your own rules.
I need to build this, but fuck php.
Chose ruby on rails.

Took another course on Lynda.
Now I love ruby.2

I really truly want to run my own dev blog, but every time I write an article, I feel that it's too dumb and useless because I already know the thing I wrote. I know it's absurd, yet I can't fight my own anxiety about it.2
Followed lectures from Udemy, build a burger 🍔 with div again!
The entire course build burger multiple times with 400+ videos... 🤦♂️
Is it really a thing? No matter what frontend framework you pick, you got build a burger with it 🤤8
I dive in head first.
Some existing program annoys me, so I get this itch to write a selfhosted Spotify in Go, or a conky with 3D graphics in Rust.
I check the homepage of the language, download the tools, check which IDE is great for it.
Then I just start writing code, following the error corrections thrown by the IDE, doing web searches for all errors. Then when I run into a wall, I might check the reference docs or a udemy course.
Often I don't finish the project, because time is limited and I still have 4 million other things to do and learn, but at least I've learned a new language/tech.
Con: For tech which uses unique paradigms like Rust's memory management or Go's Goroutines, it can be frustrating to bash away at a problem using old assumptions.
Pro: By having a real demand for a product with requirements instead of a hello world or todo app, it's much easier to stay motivated, and you learn beyond what courses would teach you.5
So, I have this free 90 day trial code for intelliJ IDEA Ultimate I got for enrolling in this udemy course. And, I don't need it anymore because I can use my student email to get access to jetbrains software, ie intelliJ ultimate. So, if you want to try out inteliJ ultimate for 3 months, let me know and I can give you the code... somehow. I'm not sure yet. Maybe Google Hangouts?10
Never though much of MOOC like Udemy and coursera. Boy was i wrong. I never learned cool new subjects like docker, cubernetes and reactjs that fast:)! It even gives me more oppertunities for a new job! Never Give up learning new tech guys :)1
Dear Udemy course instructors... If you're going to release a skeleton project, please make sure it actually fucking works...
Sincerely, someone who has had to rebuild a skeleton project 10 fucking times :-D
I need a folder for unsorted unfinished programs to sort them out of sorted unfinished programs. Also, I have an "old" folder inside of "old" folder. On both computers.3
Bought an online lecture on NodeJS from Udemy for a hefty price. It only outlines basics and does not even demonstrate a CRUD operation.
I mean c'mon!! what a bunch of cunts!7
Fucking hate my job 😡
I joined as nodejs dev at a mnc 3months ago involved in banking software in which i dont have any domain knowledge.. first 10 days I was told to go through fucking udemy nodejs and graphql tutorial (wtf) which i already have experience with before joining.. after that my reporting manager gives me task to resolve fields and gave me shitty jira story link to read.. that shit story link had no explanation about the fields and what the database it is, then she says to use some shitty sdk which is built internally by shiity devloper which had no documentation and have to follow other module which was again written by that sr. Dev... They hav fucked up the graphql and nodejs and entire stack and also till date no one has ever given any explanation about the domain and the fields and database schema.. this manager refuses to share knowledge about the domain now how the fuck i resolve the graphql schema which was again written by non technical b.a.. all they have used is latest technology in a shitty way with no standards to to follow .. no dataloading no caching no batching.. use shitty sdk which does not give access to dbconn and fucking tightly coupling expressjs which when i start consumes crazy 400Mb of memory .. these fucking seniors devs + the fucking b.a having 12+. Yrs exp each have fucked the entire codebase... Each day killing my passion for app development.. fuckkk ... Dunno what to do now7

Don't get what the fuck I just said? Udemy offers countless courses on python based buzzwords. Be the first out of 13 people to sell your soul and private information, and you'll get the first three minutes of the course free!"3
Summer is about to start.
I want to learn more over the break. I think I found the best way for me to learn. Apps. I use sololearn and Enki.
I know I'm cheap, but I dont have the money to spare on udemy.
Has anyone found any better apps though?21
Hit udemy, Google for any new technologies, attend large conferences, and simply spend 30 mins to an hour each day coding in anything new - and of interest.
I have to keep up with the young people, to keep my job/career alive, heh.1
Bad: i got told that i need to stop playing overwatch @ work
Good: so they gave me a bunch of udemy courses2
Fuck Udemy adverty. "You should learn this online machine learning course, it's taught by an 'expert' instructor, you'll learn algorithms in pythaan and 'arr, make robust models, add value to your business." Fuck off with your buzzword mumbo jumbo and just be straight with people, don't treat them like idiots.11
I can't stop the urge to buy Udemy courses. Help!! If I don't stop, I go broke cause I'm still aiming for a job.10
*Dont you want to become a professional python dev?“ Take this course on udemy.
DONT YOU WANT TO SHUT UP AND SHOW ME AT LEAST ADS THAT ARENT PISSING ME OFF THAT MUCH? I learn where else because these tutorials are the biggest bs on the planet.3
They say a rant a day is good for you.
So I’m just going to leave this here for anyone looking at trying somethingn new.

So my boss came to me yesterday and asked me if I could do some penetration / security testing for a web application our company made.
Though I have some really basic knock edge of the subject (E.g SQLInjection) I was wondering if you know any good website / udemy course or whatever that can get me started.
I don't mind if there will be a certificate at the end but it is not necessary.
At first I tried doing Codecademy, but I realised that it is shit. Started watching YouTube videos, but then found this guy on Udemy.
Later ended up watching SFM TF2 videos. And repeat.3
Hey guys, I've hit a major snag in my dev life.
My backend/frontend Java project has hit a wall as the material I was using from Udemy on advanced Java programming was boiling down to copy and paste programming without the learning. That doesn't really work for someone with 2 years programming experience but only a good 2 months of Java knowledge. I need to learn not just follow along what's written on a screen. Thankfully I learned to give in about 2 weeks in so I didn't waste a ton of time on it.
Would books be a better option? I self taught C++ mainly from books and preferred that over videos, but when I did C# videos were mostly better than books.
And...I guess I'll open the floodgates to recommendations for other stacks. I like Java and I'd like to keep using it but I know you don't want to get married to a way of doing things. My end goal is to make an E-commerce website that I can show off in interviews about a year from now.
Please be kind, I'm feeling a bit like crap right now. :(10
A few months ago I got recommended a Flutter and Dart course on Udemy, thought yeah fuck it lets get it, fast forward to 5 minutes ago...
"Ok I'm bored, feel like coding and doing something different, lets do some of this course..."
*Opens udemy, clicks on course*
"Hm, must have changed the thumbnail..."
*Clicks first lecture and is greeted with "Hello friends!"*
Yep, got the wrong fucking course didn't I ;-;
Here hoping Udemy may offer a refund seeing as I hadn't started the course till now... Fuck1
So my friend that wanted to start learning how to code started with some basic JS and he just decided after a little research to learn some C++, started out with free tutorials but I recommended a C++ Udemy course that was recommended to me from one of you guys, he said he was enjoying it so I was pretty happy...
At about midnight last night he tells me he is thinking about switching to Linux after using Windows his entire life... I have done gods work my friends...
I'm thinking about trialling him with standard Ubuntu 18.04 and maybe Elementary OS 5.0, anyone else got some recommendations for a new Linux user's first distro?9
I'm hoarding free courses on Udemy which I probably won't even watch. I even enrolled in stuff not related to dev, things like meditation and etc...1
Goals for 2018
Finish all my udemy courses I purchased back in 2016 and never watched

I'm asking a few questions to all the game developers here.
1. How'd you learn to make games (books, YouTube series, udemy, sold your soul to Satan, etc) ?
2. When and how did you realize that Game Dev is what you want to do?
So, yesterday I made a post asking for a recommendation on what to give my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day (He is a programmer and starting to learn how to develop video games) I gave him a Wacom, two online courses for Unity in Udemy, and, a portable coffee maker (since he previously complaint about the coffee in his office) What do you guys think? 😎5
WTF! The folder in which I put all the projects from my Angular courses in Udemy takes 4GB of my disk space! This is insulting and unacceptable!
This is why I have only 5GB free on my SSD.
@dfox Please don't convert the transparent colors to black color!16
I've also started a Meetup group for students and self learners like myself.
Any advice for me? Anyone want to mentor?
I'm really enjoying this learning process. And am positive I've found a career that I will actually love. I want19
Dear udemy, please chill. I am glad you found me, but I am not looking for a every-single-youtube-video type of relationship.5
Udemy is full of crap.
I got some course that had been "discounted" from $200 (I already mentioned it is an ugly trick) and it was over in like 20 minutes. The fuck?!
All the info they gave was either common sense or something you could find on the first paragraph of the Wikipedia article on the given topic (it was a soft skills course, not a technical one).
Maybe there are some gems out there, but I'm not sure I would risk it again.
Udemy feels like the Booking.com of courses in terms of deceitful UX, but it's not nearly as useful.
Maybe you guys have found something good there that you could say is a bargain? If so, please let me know.10
I am making my first dashboard/summary page without a tutorial! Once I learn D3 via a Udemy course, this will be 93% done!
I just want want to see what you guys think?
Some text is removed as I shared it on FB and the business I am making it for is following me and they have NO idea that I am doing it for them.5
Hey folks, I just saw this list of 90 currently free Udemy video courses that normally cost up to 200€ per course.. just wanted to share them with you, as there are many developer and business courses :-)
Have fun fellow devs!4
Just started an android O development course on Udemy and decided to use my Arch installation (surprisingly Linux was the easiest one to set up) even though the course said Mac or windows only..
But holy fuck does android studio fly on Linux, it's so fast compared to being run on the same machine under windows...4
Hi guys some advice would be appreciated.
I’m new here but have followed for a long time. I enjoy coding in my spare time, particularly web development but I am looking to make it my career.
Currently I work in mental health as a social worker, but ultimately the stress of the job and life in general has led to me being detained in a psychiatric hospital. So I’ve decided I need change.
I want to start a career I want to be in and that is as a developer. In terms of education, I started a degree in maths/cs a long time ago but stopped due to life events at the time. All the rest of my qualifications are around social work.
Are there any self made developers out there who have any advice for me? I’m looking at doing a bootcamp but dunno if that will help at all.
Any help or advice would be really welcome. Cheers guys :)25
So I finished 6-month long frontend studies and the school proposed internship in one of the best local coding companies. I got their test, basically to write 'API-based internet app with any of JS frameworks'.
Me: 'Hooray!!!'. Couple of days later, app delivered. Made with jQuery (because this is the only js framework the fucking coding school taught me). Very long, very personal cover letter sent along with it.
They: ' We are sorry, but we will not consider anything written with jQuery'.
Me: 'OK'. Learning ReactJS alone by myself for two weeks, 8-10 hours daily. Another two weeks - another project delivered. News agregator, fetching from 3 APIs and merging news based on publication time. News categories, news search - all the bells and whistles. Made 100% myself - not some clone from Udemy workshop or youtube.
They: 'Sorry, your project isn't good enough'.
Me (silently): Fuck you too, stupid HR manager. If you aren't able to see the motivation and dedication in a person, shove a dildo up your ass.5
I think some of my co-workers see me as real life human version of Google search engine.
Hope they would understand that just because I'm little bit more up to date in tech knowledge and an accidental Google nerd doesn't make me a know it all..
But i understand their tendency to trust my recommendation over their googling skills
They want me to find
1- best freelancing website
2- best platform or service for someone who wants to do online teaching
Results that I'm aware of:
1- freelancer, guru, upwork
2- YouTube, udemy, Pluralsight, skillshare, thinkific
Any other recommendations?2
Hey guys, does someone knows if Twitter colludes with other websites and/or services to collect data, because I thought that privacy-wise, Twitter wasn’t as bad as Facebook as I just use Twitter to follow youtubers and Donald Trump(to keep up with his craziness) and never post anything. But I just got a Python Machine Learning ad just. And it’s spooky because I’m currently (trying to be) learning Deep Learning and Google knows it (🤬🤬 you udemy ads) but Twitter!!?? Do they have a way to link my account??6
Too low level for too long. As a web developer I’ve carried hardly any knowledge of data structures with me that I wouldn’t have been able to easily pick up the first year on the job. In microservices we don’t refer to anything as multicast gossiping nodes. I’ll never write a doubly linked list. The CS path and the actual field don’t align well. Was not able to carry much with me or apply it. I will say the SQL class was useful but it’s nothing I couldn’t have downloaded off udemy4
I am a CS student. I can do core programming(like solving a basic problems) stuff pretty well but, I can't seem to understand UI design.
I was learning web development.
Learnt the basics of HTML, CSS then thought "let's make a simple website".
Couldn't design a single thing.
I mean i know the concepts how to implement forms tables navs etc stuff. But main problem is I can't think of good design.
Am I just not made for web dev or what?
How to be a web dev? I am following Angela Yu's udemy course, should i try freecodecamp?37
Evening: I have no idea how to do it, 4 hours of programming are just wasted.
Morning: Oh, I changed couple lines in yesterday code and everything is perfect now.
In the lady period i'm beginning be doubty about my choice to be a programmer. Coding always gave me the feel of create something with my hands, and i like that feel, but in these days i'm thinking that i don't have the right requirements that makes a programmer. I lack in perceverance, if i'm stuck in learning something, after a while (the whole day for example) i quit, and suddendly i feel the passion that i have for programming fades away. I taked some courses on Udemy in the last months and i've enjoyed every of them, but when i'm alone, without a teacher that tells me what to do, in that moment problems start, it's a mess. Maybe it's for these reasons that so far i haven't take job (a serious one), because i fear the failure, i'm afraid that i did the wrong choice. I need some advices right now ...7
So udemy just changed their logo... I'm not sure if I'm a fan of it...
In all honesty, does changing a logo really change anything that much? I mean why change a logo?
Resolution for April : I should get started with the Udemy courses I have already paid for.
*** goes to Udemy site, sees new courses for $10 **
Ok, I guess I'll buy these two courses - they seem to be highly rated, i can always catch up on studies later. 🎓1
Its an exciting day to continue my Web dev w/ Golang on udemy by Todd McLeod after my two days break.4
I will major in AI. No, I will major in Big data, wait, I want to major in cloud too. I think I should first complete the courses I enrolled on cloud academy or the tens of courses in enrolled on Udemy on all the domains possible first! So many technologies, so many dreams!
Best professors I've ever had were the ones on free youtube tutorials and udemy classes. Often they seem to legitimately care more than actual professors.
Online instructors I've learned tons from:
The Net Ninja (don't know the name)
Udemy, Skillshare, Coursera, Pluralsight, and FreeCodeCamp are all kinda garbage.
Has anyone tried Team Treehouse?
I have a strong feeling that Udacity is the best thing that I've ever discovered in my learning life.
Can you share other online courses I haven't mentioned? Thanks.12
Udemy courses are a fucking trap.
Bought one course on MERN stack by a youtuber I like, 10 minutes later I have 2019 filled with everything from web development to machine learning with sprinkles of flutter and react native in their as well
Side note - their 'sales' tactic is extremely slimy practice5
Udemy got call out for stealing YouTuber's contents again. Last time was Tory, the guy in charge Australia Microsoft security. (Guess they picked the wrong target)
This time is Chris, who makes some awesome free YouTube Python tutorials.
I will learn java, c#, python and swift in udemy in 6months... purchase the courses, started , only did hello world for each course, never came back3
After your boss side tracks your udemy course to learn something else and then going back to that course after a month like "wait what the hell is this alien language"
Really loving all these Udemy sales and humble book bundles, a lot of is for programming and some of them are actually really good!
It's a good time to be a Dev!

Why the fuck are you showing me ads for udemy on a video from MITOpenCourseware ?!?.
Youtube has fallen4
Hey devRant people !
How are you ?
I’ve a question, do you know a website like FrontendMaster, CloudAcademy or LinuxAcademy but ... for backend stuff ?
EdX, Udemy and all are very good but I would like to find a platform specialized in this topic.3
Okay, I try not to swear even when I am frustrated and I’ve had it up to my neck with a certain issue; it’s my personal ideal, and I have my reasons - I also have my ways of venting anger.
I searched for bootstrap on Google just once. Since then, I’ve just been using the actual website to get where I need to. Now, at the beginning of every YouTube video I watch, I get a Udemy ad asking me to enroll into the Bootstrap class. I use Adblock (I know it doesn’t protect me from all their ad scripts) but seriously, can they please tone down on the aggressive ads.
It’s so infuriating. If I have clicked the ad link to be redirected to Udemy, perhaps your AdSense should understand that I don’t want to learn Bootstrap from Udemy. If I see one more f$&@?!#g Udemy web development ad... I might just make it my mission to become a l337 h4x0r and wreck Google. Hehe
Now that that’s out, thanks for reading.7
Finished my first PC build! Feels good to actually finish a new years resolution lol now I just need to finish my sass framework and get through that udemy python course2
Just realised I had been gifted a tonne of Udemy courses covering Unity 2D and 3D, Unreal Engine, android studio etc...
Well... Know what I'll be doing over a few weeks!2
I'm currently in France and after watching my first YouTube video here, I learnt to import lessons: 1. You can't escape from the udemy ads 2. The French seem to pronounce python (as in the language, obviously) like a French word...22
I'm learning Kotlin through a Udemy course and the course instructor has such an awful accent that it's often difficult to even understand what he's saying. When he says "string" it sounds like he's saying "sit ring." 😧1
I guess all of you know udemy.
Can anyone tell me whether HR actually gives any shit about "I finished an udemy class"-certificates?
I like udemy. To get into a new language or something like that it's pretty cool (if you are ok with paying for things you can find on google, too). But somehow i don't trust their certificates. Do they make you look like a fool if you put them in your cv? Or is it a prove of "see how engaged I am"?5
I gave a very small overview of the flutter sdk a whiiiile ago and I have been thinking about going back to it. Currently considering between 2 courses on udemy that are at a discount price. I love the idea of dart as a language and prefer declarative ui building over xml shittyness. I was an Android/ios development for 2 years and hated every minute of it, but really love the idea of building mobile apps.
What are your thoughts and considerations on this? Should I jump right in or just leave it asside? What are your success stories with flutter and what did you use to learn the framework besides the docs? How easy are things like state management and persistent storage with flutter compared to android and ios?
I will eventually make my own decission by building sample projects, but hearing from the community would be great.5
Udemy is having a sale. Offering lots of courses for 10$ only. Thought it'd be okay to share with fellow developers eager to learn new stuff.7
Wow, just have to share a story:
That's exactly what amazes me about programming... You can learn the basic skills in no time and create working things!
I <3 Programming1
Any good places to start? Right now I got a free starter course for it on Udemy and have been messing around on Sololearn and FreeCodeCamp. I'm looking for decent introductory points/books/tutorials that could help me get a better introduction of the language.8
I expect you to have data before advertising data analytics courses to me Udemy ... You don't even have my %lastname% for god's sake3
I get a free year of web hosting from this web developer course I'm taking on Udemy, so I started setting that up and bought my own domain name from GoDaddy with a promo code. But before I can transfer that domain name to the site I'll be using for hosting I have to wait 2 months.6
!rant, but not sure if it's a question either.
I've kind of run into a wall when it comes to programming lately. I'm following this course on Udemy for Python, but the next section (that I need to do to be able to continue) uses (outdated) bokeh stuff, and I don't know enough to be able to figure out how to get the same output without much hair-tearing and frustration.
To clarify, the videos uses bokeh.charts, but then there's a note added that says to use bkcharts, which is still outdated, so it doesn't help at all. I did contact the course tutor about it, and he is aware of it but he's got a lot of stuff going on, so I don't know when he'll have time to fix it. In the meantime, I'm stuck and severely lacking in the intellectual stimulation that is programming. :(
I -have- been trying to work on independent projects, but my problem is mostly that I just don't seem to be a frontend kinda guy, so I end up with only halfway-finished stuff. Does any poor soul here have advice on where to look, or (less likely) even have time to explain some stuff?2
I planned to make some tutorial videos on NMAP, Metasploit or similar tools.
Which platform should I prefer? YouTube or udemy?
Note: I am not planning for monetize9
I was having second thoughts of buying another course from Udemy. Good thing I didn't. I've learned so much more from experience than I ever will with a beginner course.
I'm going through my Udemy courses for the hell of it and see if I might even learn some things, started a course I knew would start of way too basic but Jesus Christ, 7 lectures for doing basic player movement and animation... Strap in boys, it's going to be a long ride
So does React Fiber mean all my Udemy courses i was 'getting to' are now useless? Either way, Redux should still be relevant6
Bored at the office. Company is done for. I'm spending my last days here, doing nothing, waiting for my new position to start. There's only that much you can read on devRant, and SO MUCH MORE you could do writing code. But I just can't decide what to do and as a result sit here doing nothing. Help me out please! Answer with the most points will be the thing I'll start with on Monday, while today I think I'll just crack open a cold one.
My initial variants:
1. Learn Electron by playing with Electron React+Redux basic boilerplate, in order to make a simple personal blogging app.
2. Complete some of the 20 courses that I bought on Udemy 6 months ago.
3. Write the back-end logic for my Raspberry PI controlled systems at home (to control it remotely I'll make a hosted API that RPI will access to get input for it to decide what to do).
4. Solve problem 51 on projecteuler.net with an algorithm that runs less than 20 seconds.
Other suggestions are welcome.1
I feel like internet is becoming shit. At first if we googled about something, we can have proper knowledge about it. But now because some bloggers need web traffic, they post even false information about something. Second, If we want to learn something we have to pay for everything we want to know. Ofcourse still some people still teach for free, but most of the time google shows us Udemy, Coursera like that. What happened to gain knowledge through internet?1
When you spent 2-3 years in college to become a developer but there are apps like sololearn and udemy 😂😂😂😂😑😐
P.S. not me but damn ik it hurts4
It's been a while since I started my first python course on Udemy.
I feel the urge to rant because as I'm leaning more and more and getting increasingly more interested in the subject, the instructor's tone is getting sloppier and sloppier and the quality of the videos is increasingly worse. Really, the videos are so blurred that I cannot read what the guy writes, so I have to turn the captions on hoping that he says out loud everything he types.
Anything from Udemy with instructors who don't speak CLEARLY, and instructors who fail to provide solid code explanations (ex: they just type some shit and expect us to understand what it's doing, and they move onto the next topic).
Add instructors who pretty much copy a tutorial verbatim - they just go through someone else's tutorial (without referencing the authors' work) and claim it as their own.
I'm sure I have more to add, but I'll stop here. :P3
I'm most excited about Smart Contracts & Distributed Applications.
In early January I started learning Solidity thinking it would be super difficult but was pleasantly surprised when I'd completed my first DApp in a couple days. Two months on and I've finished 3 major projects and launched my own Udemy course.
I'm not a big follower of Crypto Currencies at all and haven't become financially invested in anything really. I just love the way development works on a blockchain; it is quite interesting and It feels really fresh solving problems using code that will become immutable.
Just finished my udemy course about mobile development with xamarin. I can't wait to start prototyping moreover Adobe XD is now available for free. What a timing ! I only hope my exams won't take too much of my time ^^7
I studied computer game development at a university that had pretty low standards. It was perfect for a slacker like me. I enjoyed it. Maybe it was implied that you'd have to study on your own and that completing the courses wasn't enough to make you a competent developer, but maybe I'm a bit slow or something because that never occurred to me until after we were finished.
I was taught enough programming and database stuff to land me an entry position job at a consulting firm before I was able to complete my thesis. Technically I dropped out, I guess, since I don't have a diploma.
I built a portfolio consisting of different projects/essays I'd completed/wrote for different courses. That, together with my charm and boyish good lucks made me get the job.
Anyways, even though I learned more practical stuff my first year on the job than I did my 3 years of uni it was a very good experience. It helped me understand what I was interested in so that I could pursue that later and some of the people I got to know would help my career later.
I mean, if education wasn't free (except living expenses, books, etc) I'd might say that I had been better off just taking a year of egghead/udemy/Indian Guy On YouTube classes to learn what I needed to land myself a job. But I'd need to know which courses to take so I'd probably find a group of courses that someone else put together. I guess it would be nice to take those classes with other people so that you can work together, learn from each other, and make some friends and connections as well. Oh, that sounds kinda like uni ¯\_(ツ)_/¯2
As an Angular developer, i am thinking switching to React, major companies and websites are using it
Facebook,Twitter Instagram,Dropbox,Aws,New outlook,mongodb cloud, Amazon drive,Udemy, ....
Gcloud, not many more
Is the switch advisable?7
Me: Ok lets focus on my games dev kit, just got the hang of UI using GML and things are going well...
Also me: Oh look, Udemy have some decent courses goig for $18 AUD... Guess im learning Xamarin and more of unity!1
I can't read a documentation 'til the end. I, on the first few parts, would be like: "Oh this documentation is so good. Why would someone need a tutorial for this?" And then suddenly: "What the fck is this sht? I don't understand life anymore." So I end up buying a course on Udemy cause all the other YouTube tutorials are rubbish.
There is a deal on udemy for black Friday, all courses are 9.99€ in case anyone cares, I know it's really popular among devs.
I got one for unreal engine and one for python machine learning - they are well taught so far.5
Paid for a private school in my country (France) cause public isn't so great.
After 3 years, realize that it was more bullshit than school so continue to paid until the last year to get diploma.
At the end, I was on Udemy to buy lessons and learn. Was way much cheaper than my school but since it's hard here without diploma, I had to finish scholarship...2
Just acquired a udemy course and got kinda disappointed when the man reads a part of a URL which involves a # sing and reads it as "hash-tag"...
Wtf. I hope it's worth the money6
React professionals do you organize components with arrow functions? I hope not... the guy on udemy is doing a whole project using arrow functions instead of classes 😱1
I'm crying... I am finishing this udemy course "complete web developer bla bla bla" and the last project is doing clone of twitter and I'm at 3/6 and you are supposed to be following the instructor in this case but the code oh my god... if , else , else if statements EVERYWHERE it's so ugly and confusing I just put something in the wrong order and now I can't even register4
Hello council of elders.. or should I say "console"? Heh? Heh? I've been up for a long time sorry.
Anyway. I've started learning framework stuff. Angular right now. Been long overdue tbh. And I found a free course on udemy and followed it. It's cool and everything but I gotta ask...
Why can't I just use vanilla js and everything from scratch? I'm not sure if its the course I'm using (I'd appreciate more resources. Thanks) but I feel like it's a lot of effort. Is there something I'm missing or haven't learned yet?
It might sound stupid please let me know why it's better to use that than regular methods. Apparently it's meant to make stuff easier but I feel like it's just a lot linking files and making various things in different places.
Also. Other stupid question which might just be cause of the course but like... Is it mostly just for manipulating json??
Thanks. More questions to come soon!!4
I started my coding journey with JAVA ! I l grasped the basic concepts like LOOPS TYPECASTING ARRAYS etc. pretty well but failed to cope up with stacks , queues . So I switched to python and completed the Python Bootcamp from Udemy and now I am pretty confident in python . So should I try to learn Java again ?3
Pluralsight or lynda or udemy or udacity or treehouse or tutsplus or edx or coursera or codeacademy or codeschool or video2brain
Which one is the best for JS related courses?
Currently I use pluralsight, udemy and udacity
So much to learn so little time :|5
unfortunately i had to learn the hard way how to pick online courses ( yes, i am not very smart), udemy has disappointed me.6
Pluralsight is so infuriating. First of all my trial lapsed (classiccc move) so I figured I would use it.
They’re content is so outdated.. it’s driving me mad. The past 3 courses have been 2+ years out of date.. and I get it, it’s a lot of work to maintain a course but could you not at least provide links or new annotations?
And I’m not talking a couple of package version updates where things change. This guy is using Bower which to my knowledge is pretty much deprecated and references yarn. Which completely breaks the course.
My thing is, why are you charging $30/month (i think), if I have to jump through these hoops to learn??? I was doing a great job of that on my own via google and YouTube.
The one Udemy course I bought is constantly being updated with notes and annotations and boy do I appreciate that. They’re marketing and cookies are toxic but at least the content is reliable.3
How do you get to learn something new? By doing tutorials on YT, Udemy? Going directly to the documentation of the tool/language..etc ? Reading books ? And to practice what you've learned what do you do? Do you build something that you've previously done in another language or look for ideas or how is it? Does anybody know about a "list" of "programs" that can be developed to practice a language knowledge? Thanks :P3
Okay guys, after sleeping it over I decided that I didn't need to dump my entire stack of Java/mySQL and instead just slow the hell down on my development time. I'm going from Udemy to a book to help me be a better dev and this is a night and day difference as my book breaks every bit apart and explains it in a lot more depth than having a video walk me through it. What I wouldn't do without Amazon's Kindle service I tell ya...:)
Today I'm starting the project over, but this time breaking it down and going at better pace. Thanks for all the advice guys. :)
...I'm going to need a lot of Jack Daniels for this project aren't I?5
Looking for an online Bootcamp to learn front end development and eventually full-stack. I was looking at a combo of Free coding camp and Udemy Complete web developer Bootcamp. Any suggestions?1
I've been programming for quite a while. I know Java and C#, but I decided to pick up another language, C++, so enrolled in a class at my college. My professor is GOD AWFUL. 4 weeks in and WE DIDNT EVEN TOUCH THE #$@&% KEYBOARD. You'd think that we would at least learn inputs or outputs, right? Instead we've been busting ass learning how to format our homework. What a waste of time.
On that note, if there are any good C++ classes on Udemy, and if you've had a good experience I would love your advice since theres many choices to choose from. I'm gonna learn this one way or another, and it seems the latter looks more useful than that person I'm obligated to call "professor".7
started out with react.....its been a fucking week hopping from documentation to youtube to udemy, edx, pluralsight, blogs and what not..... All hit me at once: babel, webpack, ecmascript, fuckin hell.... Cant even set up my machine on my own without any boilerplate to just start working with a fucking framework ..... Uughhh!! Finally found a setup guide on scotch.io.... Followed the steps using yarn(as thats what the tutorial creater used). Worked flawlessly. Tried to imitate using npm, doesn't work.... Why? Fucking piece of crap framework... Steep learning curve..... Cool logo tho.2
Develop an Advanced Course on Udemy on the Qt Framework I've been working in for nearly 2 years non-stop now.
Programming anxiety is when one of the similar methods could be 1% better in performance and you're stunned by such a tough choice, which one to use/test first.
Any of you ranters wanted to get into electronics but never really had the right guidance?
Well check out humble DIY Electronics Books and help out charity at the same time :) https://humblebundle.com/books/...?
Got plenty of these bundles, and whilst one or two books might not be great. For the price you pay you are getting a shit ton of knowledge - better than any Udemy course you'll ever buy for the same price :D
I need some advice.
Previously I have done Android development course on Udemy and now I took Android Nanodegree program from Udacity. I was wondering if Android development is a good career option, or should I learn something additional to it? If so, what?
I'm a B.E under graduate from India.4
But, I'm REALLY not looking forward to Gradle wasting my time--it took two minutes to even start up the IDE for the initial project.
Ah well, nothing's perfect3
Looking for "real reviews" of Udemy courses.
Who here have taken a Udemy course?
Which course did you take?
What was your opinion of it, in terms of overall quality, material coverage, interactivity (the coursework), and so forth?
Did you feel you actually learned useful things at the conclusion of it?
Had you taken a similar course through a different service? Which service and how did it compare?
There are some $10 courses at Udemy I'm considering purchasing. But there are two $100/each courses I'm highly interested in. TMI: We are a single income, single parent household of 3 with Christmas nearing and all the childrens have birthdays this month. Spring Break was apparently a very busy time for the adults of our extended family. Hence, even the $10 is hard to part with.5
Is know this has been asked before but is it actually worth spending money for online training on platforms like udemy. Don‘t you already have large amount of resources on the internet?
What do they have that the free internet does not offer?3
I would purchase a udemy course and grind away. I still do this today. In my option one of the best resources to learn new programming languages.
Do you ever enrolled online dev courses on udemy or platforms like that?
What's your opinion about these courses?
I want to learn Angular, I bought a course on udemy but i don't know if they're useful or not9
I listen to podcast during commute to work. Read blog posts. Sometimes i bought courses, only If something i really want to learn and if get a good discount on udemy (10-15$).
Also keep track of conferences and watch the videos on youtube.
Any ServiceNow developers in this thing? Besides the training and learning plans on developer.servicenow.com and their API documentation, any other recommendations for resources (books, videos, courses)? I didn't find any at Lynda, and those I've found on YouTube are fairly poor quality. I like books more than videos in general although sometimes it's nice to hear someone talk through it. I found a course at Udemy, but I'm a bit leery of its quality. I have been toying around in a developers' instance and once I get a better feel of it, I plan to replicate an implementation of it that I already used as a technician, and improve upon it. The platform is way more massive than I already thought it would be.2
This semester I'm taking a class in my university about Cloud computing. You know, how to use the cloud better, when to use it, and we are using AWS in the class. That mother fucking class takes a lot of my time, I couldn't sleep for 2 nights in a row doing homework, and now EVERY TIME I go to YouTube to chill and see a video I GET A UDEMY AD TO LEARN AWS. WHY??3
Have you already met the code that you have no idea how to refactor?
In five years I met those twice and I'm still puzzled with one of them. (I don't mean just a spaghetti or too long code)
can you share some interesting and useful topics for a web developer(PHP), who want to become nodejs based full stack developer?
udemy courses link will be useful.2
Started my first experience with Udemy yesterday. The video seems to be buffering occasionally and switching to low quality frequently which makes it hard to read what's on the screen. I'm not happy about that the least bit. Is that normal for Udemy?
Also, I bought a course for €10 that was supposedly discounted from something like €200. I assume this is a marketing trick? Do all courses always have those kinds of "discounts"?9
So in Udemy, I am learning about OOP in Java, and the next lecture is a big challenge in making a program with all the knowledge I have learned. I understand each concept, its just its a lot to memorize, however, I get the jist of it (You've ever had that feeling?). Anyways, I started writing notes on what each concept basically was and I began with composition. Now honestly I love composition and I just learned it a while ago. It is actually the most confusing thing I have learned in Java so far, as a few months ago when I was practicing Java I didn't understand it at ALL and I stopped coding for like half a year after (I'm back bebe don't worry). So I make my notes on composition and I realize, dang, I understand this a lot more than I thought. I thought this because what I did was make a file in Eclipse (not a class, a file) and I just started writing code without auto-complete like I was a mad lad. I made classes, fields, and I FEEL like I made my point about composition with the notes I also jotted down. Anyways, this was a part story and part what do you guys think of my notes on Composition. I think they are good and actually kinda detailed. Anyways thanks for reading this!
Git starts merging changes to your private personal repository is scarier than seeing someone else in the mirror in the empty room
I want to design my own games and apps, I learned fundamentals through sololearn and Udemy but as someone said on a previous status, theres nothing like a college degree. Any suggestions on good schools?1
Super frustrating and demotivating to “forget everything and feel like a total idiot when I have to complete an assignment..4
Twitter now allows to add up to 4 images and format count them in symbols count. I have no idea what to do with such a great power.
I'm enjoying learning Elixir:
Feeling #empowered, sharing some elixir love...
Hi everyone am a CS student.
Along with C/C++ taught in colleges, Am learning C# side by side and getting used to it.
So am learning it from internet PSA. I already did one C# course on udemy. And also practices a lot about the language features.
As it's very big language am really confuse what should I know more about that language. I mean which C#.NET classes are important in industry and which not and other stuff too.
So am just wanting answer from a specifically a C# developer which works in industry and uses it everyday.2
What do you think about Udemy?
And if you took it, which courses did you find most useful - not only related to programming/development but in general?
Thank you in advance. :)4
I cannot get started with dot net core ! Tutorials are a walk in the park for windows and windows vs but for mac, everything’s grey and udemy/Lynda tutorials are all outdated.3
My recommendation for people who really want to learn Python as their main tool:
The serie 'Python 3: Deep dive (1,2,3)' is avaible on udemy and you will be taught about Python by a master of his kind. The teacher is also a mathematician, he really enjoys the beauty of python as a language and I have the feeling that he wants to inspire me to love the language, too.
In about 120 hours of learning material you will not learn about frameworks in order to earn quick money but the core features of the language and how things work behind the curtain.
Many courses of udemy may be trash but these are really treasures for uni students like me.
if (object != null)
object = null;
So udemy are currently doing sales
Can you guys recommend me some courses to buy? Of whatever subject you like (development, business, etc...)1
Not really a rant, more of a question really. Who here uses Udemy secretly without letting their friends know what you're learning?
