It’s me – Arthur and this is ground zero. The beginning of an exhilarating journey, which I hope will bring value and in the best case scenario – inspiration.
What am I on about?
Quite simply – I want to create enough content, to bring anyone and I mean anyone from 0 knowledge in programming, to becoming employable. Given that you have the interest and the willingness to allow me to guide you through the journey of tackling the most sought after profession of our time.
Why am I doing this?
Because just like you, I started off somewhere without anyone I knew that could guide me through the beginning, which in all honesty is the hardest part (just like in everything). I have to admit that at the time when I started, I had quite a lot of experience with computers and the internet in general. I had practically no clue about programming though.
What content can you expect?
I went out to search and research on what is what, where to start, which path to take, which language and so on, and so on. This is what I will serve to you on a silver platter, in laymans terms and hopefully in a format, that you will find comfortable to learn from. As of today, I am starting to produce the series in which we will tackle (but not limited to) the topics below:
- What is programming?
- Popular myth destruction.
- The basics.
- Your first webpage!
- Your first beautiful webpage!
- Your portfolio webpage!
- Free learning materials.
- Video tutorials.
- Sources where to learn more from.
- How do professionals do it?
So as you see, theory intertwined with practical projects. If you want to learn from dry theory and tons of terminology that doesn’t make any sense, you will not find that format here. I will attempt to break down the concepts into actually consumable material and refrain from fancy-pansy vocabulary as much as possible.
Wait – you said “for free”, what is in it for you?
I went from 0 to employable by self-learning everything. From material available online for free. Quite honestly, becoming employable in this industry is what saved my life in a way. That’s why I have personal attachment to the subject. That is exactly why I will go the extra mile and offer all of it for free, because it’s how I received it and it is how I will pay back to the community.
I believe everyone regardless of their origin, financial situation, life situation or whatever else, should have the possibility to learn programming nowadays. This is the future and it is coming fast. I wish to provide value and a chance for anyone, who maybe has only the willingness to learn should have the chance to learn. (back when I started, 29$ for a course was unaffordable for me)
So where will this content be located?
Right here, on my website. It will definitely change alot during the next months, but everything will be front and center, so you cannot miss it. Bookmark my page and/or subscribe to my newsletter to be notified of the latest news.
The internet helped me when I most needed it, now it’s time to return the favor.
