I still remember the first time I tried to learn programming. I was a University accounting student with a passion for everything ICT and I had finally decided to learn Java. After consulting the classifieds I ended up in some rundown downtown college where they promised me I would be a Java ninja in 3 months.
Long story short I parted with the equivalent of $400 – it’s really difficult to say the exact amount for Zimbabwe has had so many currencies since then. In about 5 minutes I discovered that my lecturer knew diddly squat about Java. It took him 3 days to install the Java SDK and set up the Path environment and 4 more days to create a working Hello World Program. I never bothered to return for the second week.
If only Udemy had been around those days. The website is perfect for those who want to acquire specific skills on a dime. The site is replete with all manner of short courses from photography to Ruby programming. Want to learn the Go programming language, no problem, you want to brush up your Photoshop or After Effects skills the site has you covered.
Udemy is running a $14.99 promotion on all courses
Normally instructors get to charge whatever amount they want and courses can be expensive in Zimbabwean terms but still a bargain considering the $400 amount I paid for nothing. Besides most of these courses are created by people with experience and knowledge in their various fields which is more than I can say for my stupid would be Java tutor.
Currently Udemy is running a $14.99 month long promotion. To take advantage of this you have to subscribe via any one of our links within this article including clicking here. If you visit the site directly you will not be able to get the discount. If you visit Udemy via any of the links all course prices will change to $14.99
