About this course
Who is this for?
Founder/Hacker is a launchpad for "non-technical" employees who want to become owners.
Just a few years into my career as a freelance marketer, I had already worked with over 25 startups. Yet, I still didn't know anything about coding besides <a href=""> tags.
One day, a frustrated colleague told me "You don't know s*** about technology." And he was right.
A week later I dropped everything I was doing, flew to Thailand, and began teaching myself to code. A few months after that I started fomo.com as the "technical co-founder," and my life has changed completely ever since.
If you've tried and given up on platforms like Codecademy, Udemy courses or Team Treehouse, you might think you're not smart enough to learn to code. This is false. Unfortunately, traditional programming schools present material in a boring, life-sucking fashion. We endure it for a few minutes, then quit again until next year.
Founder/Hacker is the antidote to courses that train you to be a "good employee." I will teach you to be an owner. And we'll get there together, so you can build the money-making software ideas you've been kicking around your head for far too long.
What you'll learn
Ruby is a beautiful, expressive backend language that powers websites like GitHub, Airbnb, Shopify, and Hulu.
Zero-to-one training on APIs and webhooks so you can make and parse requests with HTTP or open source libraries.
Build command line interface (CLI) tools and executables that automate your work and interact with 3rd party services.
Code alongside me for 17 hours. I assume you know nothing, and we build from there.
Reinforce what you've learned through quizzes, real world use cases, and refactoring projects.
Every lecture is packed with notes and examples to bolster your understanding of each concept.
