Day#30: Udemy – kick start a new skill

Last day for this project #ship30for30 Atomic Essays, I’d like to dedicate it to a Udemy course and Udemy platform itself that got me into web development. It has brought me to the world that I never imagined myself in because I always believed that I’m more into arts than anything technical. Little did I know, web development is an art, too. Even though it’s a complex art, it is scalable, adaptable, and shareable across platforms. Plenty of room for creativity and the possibility is endless.

The course I have taken isThe Complete 2021 Web Development Bootcamp”

Let me first start with Udemy platform. 

Udemy is an online platform that offers a wide range of online courses, even wider than LinkedIn Learning, which I wrote about yesterday. It covers areas like development, business, finance and accounting, design, lifestyle, photography, health and fitness, music, etc.

Features of Udemy courses are similar to LinkedIn Learning. It lets you add a note at any minute mark, ask the instructor questions, review the course, and have access to any resource available within the course. Most courses are available at an affordable price and as far as I know, Udemy often has sales.

Now continue with The Complete 2021 Web Development Bootcamp course that I take.

I’d highly recommend this course to anybody who’s new to the field, especially if you want to explore the world of frontend development. This is a long course of over 50 hours, aiming to give you a comprehensive guide from beginner to advanced. What I like so much is that Dr. Angela, the instructor updated the course regularly regarding the changes of technology. This helps students learn the up-to-date lessons at all times or can always check the instructor’s announcements about what has been added to the course. 

The style of teaching is comprehensible. Dr. Angela sometimes adds a bit of interesting history behind a topic. There are plenty of projects throughout the course where you can add into your portfolio or customize them to suit other needs. Each project trains you to apply the concept you learn to build something concrete. 

If you are curious about changing your career or building a new skill, taking an online course is one of the best ways to get your feet wet. You’ll gradually know if you like it or not before devoting time into it fully. 

Browse the courses on Udemy. Give it a try and go from there. I’m thankful to Udemy and Dr. Angela to this day.

This is day#30 post and a part of my commitment to spend 30 minutes a day for 30 days straight to write about software development tools that I love. My goal is to build my daily writing habit and connect to more people. This project is inspired by @dickiebush ’s “Ship 30 for 30” Atomic Essays.
