Master statistics & machine learning: intuition, math, code

Statistics and probability control your life. I don’t just mean What YouTube’s algorithm recommends you to watch next, and I don’t just mean the chance of meeting your future significant other in class or at a bar. Human behavior, single-cell organisms, Earthquakes, the stock market, whether it will snow in the first week of December, and countless other phenomena are probabilistic and statistical. Even the very nature of the most fundamental deep structure of the universe is governed by probability and statistics.

You need to understand statistics.

Nearly all areas of human civilization are incorporating code and numerical computations. This means that many jobs and areas of study are based on applications of statistical and machine-learning techniques in programming languages like Python and MATLAB. This is often called ‘data science’ and is an increasingly important topic. Statistics and machine learning are also fundamental to artificial intelligence (AI) and business intelligence.

If you want to make yourself a future-proof employee, employer, data scientist, or researcher in any technical field — ranging from data scientist to engineering to research scientist to deep learning modeler — you’ll need to know statistics and machine-learning. And you’ll need to know how to implement concepts like probability theory and confidence intervals, k-means clustering and PCA, Spearman correlation and logistic regression, in computer languages like Python or MATLAB.

There are six reasons why you should take this course:

  • This course covers everything you need to understand the fundamentals of statistics, machine learning, and data science, from bar plots to ANOVAs, regression to k-means, t-test to non-parametric permutation testing.
  • After completing this course, you will be able to understand a wide range of statistical and machine-learning analyses, even specific advanced methods that aren’t taught here. That’s because you will learn the foundations upon which advanced methods are build.
  • This course balances mathematical rigor with intuitive explanations, and hands-on explorations in code.
  • Enrolling in the course gives you access to the Q&A, in which I actively participate every day.
  • I’ve been studying, developing, and teaching statistics for 20 years, and I’m, like, really great at math.

What you need to know before taking this course:

  • High-school level maths. This is an applications-oriented course, so I don’t go into a lot of detail about proofs, derivations, or calculus.
  • Basic coding skills in Python or MATLAB. This is necessary only if you want to follow along with the code. You can successfully complete this course without writing a single line of code! But participating in the coding exercises will help you learn the material. The MATLAB code relies on the Statistics and Machine Learning toolbox (you can use Octave if you don’t have MATLAB or the statistics toolbox). Python code is written in Jupyter notebooks.
  • I recommend taking my free course called “Statistics literacy for non-statisticians“. It’s 90 minutes long and will give you a bird’s-eye-view of the main topics in statistics that I go into much much much more detail about here in this course. Note that the free short course is not required for this course, but complements this course nicely. And you can get through the whole thing in less than an hour if you watch if on 1.5x speed!
  • You do not need any previous experience with statistics, machine learning, deep learning, or data science. That’s why you’re here!

Is this course up to date?

Yes, I maintain all of my courses regularly. I add new lectures to keep the course “alive,” and I add new lectures (or sometimes re-film existing lectures) to explain maths concepts better if students find a topic confusing or if I made a mistake in the lecture (rare, but it happens!).

You can check the “Last updated” text at the top of this page to see when I last worked on improving this course!

What if you have questions about the material?

This course has a Q&A (question and answer) section where you can post your questions about the course material (about the maths, statistics, coding, or machine learning aspects). I try to answer all questions within a day. You can also see all other questions and answers, which really improves how much you can learn! And you can contribute to the Q&A by posting to ongoing discussions.

And, you can also post your code for feedback or just to show off — I love it when students actually write better code than mine! (Ahem, doesn’t happen so often.)

What should you do now?

First of all, congrats on reading this far; that means you are seriously interested in learning statistics and machine learning. Watch the preview videos, check out the reviews, and, when you’re ready, invest in your brain by learning from this course!

Python for Statistical Analysis

Welcome to Python for Statistical Analysis!

This course is designed to position you for success by diving into the real-world of statistics and data science.

  1. Learn through real-world examples: Instead of sitting through hours of theoretical content and struggling to connect it to real-world problems, we’ll focus entirely upon applied statistics. Taking theory and immediately applying it through Python onto common problems to give you the knowledge and skills you need to excel.
  2. Presentation-focused outcomes: Crunching the numbers is easy, and quickly becoming the domain of computers and not people. The skills people have are interpreting and visualising outcomes and so we focus heavily on this, integrating visual output and graphical exploration in our workflows. Plus, extra bonus content on great ways to spice up visuals for reports, articles and presentations, so that you can stand out from the crowd.
  3. Modern tools and workflows: This isn’t school, where we want to spend hours grinding through problems by hand for reinforcement learning. No, we’ll solve our problems using state-of-the-art techniques and code libraries, utilising features from the very latest software releases to make us as productive and efficient as possible. Don’t reinvent the wheel when the industry has moved to rockets.

Gatsby V3 Tutorial and Projects Course

Description

Gatsby is a React-based, GraphQL powered static site generator. It combines together the best parts of React, webpack, react-router, GraphQL, and other front end tools to provide excellent developer experience. Gatsby is far more than typical static site generator though. You can think of it more like a modern front-end  framework.

It uses powerful pre-configuration to build a website that uses only static files for incredibly fast page loads, service workers, code splitting, server side rendering, smart image loading, asset optimization, and data prefetching.

The course will consist of two parts. In the first part, the tutorial part  we will cover Gatsby basics, and in the second part, projects part, we will build interesting projects using Gatsby.

All project intro videos are available for preview.

With the new Gatsby 3.0, create blazing fast web experiences that integrate your favorite services and content. Build e-commerce sites, landing pages, blogs and more in minutes.

Go from idea to production in literal minutes with a 10x developer experience. Gatsby is built on popular, proven tech like React and GraphQL, has loads of tutorials and starter templates, and over 2500 plugins that can help integrate all of your favorite web services.

Gatsby loads only critical 1 parts of the page, exactly when the visitor needs it, and not a second sooner. Once loaded, Gatsby prefetches resources 2 for other pages so that clicking on the site feels buttery smooth and responsive. Everything is statically generated at runtime – so your site loads as fast as possible.

Who this course is for:

  • Everyone Interested in Building Blazingly Fast Static Websites With Gatsby

Taught by: 

Andrei is the instructor of the highest rated Web Development courses on Udemy as well as one of the fastest growing. His graduates have moved on to work for some of the biggest tech companies around the world like Apple, Google, JP Morgan, IBM, etc… He has been working as a senior software developer in Silicon Valley and Toronto for many years, and is now taking all that he has learned, to teach programming skills and to help you discover the amazing career opportunities that being a developer allows in life.

Having been a self taught programmer, he understands that there is an overwhelming number of online courses, tutorials and books that are overly verbose and inadequate at teaching proper skills. Most people feel paralyzed and don’t know where to start when learning a complex subject matter, or even worse, most people don’t have $20,000 to spend on a coding bootcamp. Programming skills should be affordable and open to all. An education material should teach real life skills that are current and they should not waste a student’s valuable time.   Having learned important lessons from working for Fortune 500 companies, tech startups, to even founding his own business, he is now dedicating 100% of his time to teaching others valuable software development skills in order to take control of their life and work in an exciting industry with infinite possibilities.

Andrei promises you that there are no other courses out there as comprehensive and as well explained. He believes that in order to learn anything of value, you need to start with the foundation and develop the roots of the tree. Only from there will you be able to learn concepts and specific skills(leaves) that connect to the foundation. Learning becomes exponential when structured in this way.

Taking his experience in educational psychology and coding, Andrei’s courses will take you on an understanding of complex subjects that you never thought would be possible.

Who this course is for:

  • Developers who want to be considered in the top 10% of JavaScript programmers
  • Bootcamp or online tutorial graduates that want to go beyond the basics
  • Junior JavaScript Developers
  • Junior Web Developers
  • Programmers who don’t want to waste time on basics and want to dive deep

JavaScript – The Complete Guide 2021 (Beginner + Advanced)

  • NO prior JavaScript knowledge is required
  • Basic web development knowledge is recommended
  • Basic understanding of HTML and CSS helps but is NOT required

Description

JavaScript is THE most important programming language you need to learn as a web developer – and with this course, you make sure that you will not miss a single thing you have to know as a JavaScript developer!

This is the most comprehensive and modern course you can find on JavaScript – it’s based on all my JavaScript knowledge AND teaching experience. It’s both a complete guide, starting with the core basics of the language, as well as an extensive reference of the JavaScript language and environment, ensuring that both newcomers as well as experienced JavaScript developers get a lot out of this course!

It’s a huge course because it’s packed with important knowledge and helpful content. From the core basics, over advanced concepts and JavaScript specialties, all the way up to expert topics like performance optimization and testing – this course has it all. My goal was to create your go-to resource for the JavaScript language, which you can not just use for learning it but also as a resource you can come back to and look up important topics.

The course is based on my experience as a long-term JavaScript developer as well as a teacher with more than 1,000,000 students on Udemy as well as on my YouTube channel Academind. It’s packed with examples, demos, projects, assignments, quizzes and of course videos – all with the goal of giving you the best possible way of learning JavaScript.

What’s in the course?

This course is obviously packed with content – I therefore strongly recommend that you check out the full course curriculum to get a clear idea of all the topics covered in the course. In general, here’s what you’ll find in the course:

  • Modern JavaScript from the start: The JavaScript syntax changed over time – in this course, you’ll learn the latest syntax from the start (you’ll also learn about the old one though, so that you can work in ANY JS project)
  • ALL the Basics: Variables, constants, functions, how scripts are loaded etc
  • Arrays & Objects: We’ll explore these very important data structures in great detail
  • Control Structures: Understand how to run code conditionally and in loops
  • A look behind the Scenes: How JavaScript engines work behind the scenes and what that means for us
  • Deep dives into Core Concepts: ALL the special things about JavaScript function, different syntaxes
  • Working with the DOM: How to manipulate web pages dynamically via JavaScript (including deep dives and different use-cases)
  • Events in JavaScript: Learn how to listen to a broad variety of events (e.g. drag & drop) and execute appropriate code
  • Classes & Object-oriented Programming: Learn how to work with classes, prototypes, the “this” keyword, constructor functions and much more
  • Asynchronous and Synchronous Programming: We’ll explore callbacks, promises, async/ await and other important tools and language features to execute code correctly
  • Http Requests: Learn how to send Http requests via JavaScript
  • Tooling, Optimizations & Browser Support: Code splitting, producing small code and ensuring that scripts work in all browsers  – this matters and hence is covered in great detail
  • Libraries & Frameworks: Learn about libraries like Axios or frameworks like React.js – why they matter and how to use them
  • Node.js: Whilst focusing on the browser-side for the majority of the course (because the syntax is the same), we’ll also have a dedicated section on Node.js to learn all about that JS host environment
  • Security & Performance Optimizations: Of course security matters, so does performance – no surprise that both is covered in the course!
  • Automated Testing: Testing manually is hard work and can be unreliable – in this course you’ll also get an introduction into automated testing

What are the course prerequisites?

  • NO JavaScript knowledge is required – you’ll learn it from scratch!
  • You also need NO programming experience other than basic web development knowledge (e.g. how the web works)
  • Basic HTML and CSS knowledge is recommended but not a must-have

Who this course is for:

  • Beginner web development students who have no or only little JavaScript experience
  • Also developers who know the basics about JavaScript and want to deepen their knowledge
  • Advanced JavaScript developers who want to learn more about the nitty-gritty details and dive into advanced concepts
  • Everyone interested in learning JavaScript and all about how it works

Creating 3D environments in Blender

Creating 3D environments in Blender

After four years, the creating 3D environments course, is now finally here for Blender 2.81. Thousands of students participated in the first version of this course and there were a lot of requests for a follow-up course. Prepare for a new chapter in the world of 3D environments!

The profession continues

For centuries, making environments has been something that many artists do to impress other people. Since the advent of computer graphics there is a new wave of designers studying this lovely profession. This course reveals some fundamental lessons from the old painting masters. Use the course to get the max out Blender and learn to create high quality 3D environments.

Starting from scratch

The complexity of many scenes is often holding people back from creating environmental scenes in 3D. Most designers drop-out halfway and are then facing their unfinished work because it takes a lot of time and work to create scenes with architecture and nature. I faced this many times, but because I was so inspired by medieval architecture, I took the time to learn how to create 3D environments in a way in which I could express myself. During this process I struggled hard and made many unnecessary choices that slowed down my progression. The power of this course is that it shows you exactly what you need to design 3D environments and which details you might want to avoid or postpone in order to make the most out of your own progression.

The road to perfection

We all want to create beautiful scenes, but making these scenes can be a big challenge. This course is not only a technical education, it also covers topics like focus, inspiration and organization. I believe that a well-organized focused designer, with the right inspiration, will be able to make every 3D dream come to life. This course is well documented and guides you through the process of creating 3D scenes in Blender 2.81.

From ruin to castle

This course will guide you through the new Blender 2.81 interface. Together we make our first steps in Blender. Slowly we start building objects and after one chapter you will be able to make a small dice scene. This warming-up is needed to get used to the workflow and make you comfortable with Blender and the things that will come. Shortly after that, we will jump into the node editor. We will start mixing textures, just like the old painting masters, to get decent looking results. We will apply the material on a ruin and build the first environment scene. Then we will start building a farmhouse in a medieval style. We will use the workbench for modeling, Eevee for the texture work and Cycles to render the scenes to get the max out of it. After finishing the farmhouse, we merge the building with a nature environment. We will create the trees with the sapling add-on, so you will not need any external plugins. There is a full chapter about creating nature assets and in the final castle scene we will merge everything together to make a wonderful environmental scene. All content and textures come from Texture/HDRI Haven and are included in the course.

About me

My name is Rob Tuytel and I have been a environment designer for the past 13 years. I have a huge passion for the Dutch 17th century and mainly focus on medieval architecture. I run the platform Texture Haven together with Greg Zahl who also runs HDRI Haven. I recently completed my latest project Batavia 1627, a Realtime VR project for a Dutch museum. I love to study old environment paintings and use these as an inspiration for my work. You might know me from the Tears of Steel open Blender movie or from my previous environment course for Blender 2.79

What Students say:

“I appreciate the manner in which each project is presented, an example of an end result to which we need to build the relevant to reach the same output. It is a building block approach that works very well for me to comprehend the compartmentalisation of each component and the visualisation of the complete ‘picture’. Each component is then carefully unpacked through a process of visually understanding each characteristic and applying the ‘code’ to create the same. Marvelous.” Celia M Gaylard

The Complete Electronics Course 2021: Analog Hardware Design

Have you ever wondered why understanding electronics is difficult? Is it because electronics is really that difficult? Or is it because teachers’ explanations are difficult to understand and they use outdated teaching methods? Whatever is the case, Hardware Academy is here to provide high-quality courses that will cover 2 years of educational courses that you could get by attending a BSc in Electrical Engineering. We will start from the fundamentals and as we progress, we will try to understand more and more complicated circuits (which you will find out later that there are not even that complicated !).

Each chapter will have multiple exercises (questions with multiple answers) that you will have to complete (like a test) so that we know if you have paid attention or not and if you succeed,  you can proceed further with the courses.

The simulator that we will use is available for free for everyone and based on multiple reviews, the simulator that we are going to use is the best tool if you want to understand how circuits work! (and it’s so much fun to use it ! )

We can guarantee that you will understand each course since we tried hard to explain in the most coherent way (also in the simplest way but at the same time reaching more complex topics)  using one of the best software to simulate the circuits which will be an eye-opener for you.

Computer Vision: Face Recognition Quick Starter in Python

Hi There!

welcome to my new course ‘Face Recognition with Deep Learning using Python’. This is the second course from my Computer Vision series.

Face Detection and Face Recognition is the most used applications of Computer Vision. Using these techniques, the computer will be able to extract one or more faces in an image or video and then compare it with the existing data to identify the people in that image.

Face Detection and Face Recognition is widely used by governments and organizations for surveillance and policing. We are also making use of it daily in many applications like face unlocking of cell phones etc.

This course will be a quick starter for people who wants to dive deep into face recognition using Python without having to deal with all the complexities and mathematics associated with typical Deep Learning process.

We will be using a python library called face-recognition which uses simple classes and methods to get the face recognition implemented with ease. We are also using OpenCV, Dlib and Pillow for python as supporting libraries.

Let’s now see the list of interesting topics that are included in this course.

At first we will have an introductory theory session about Face Detection and Face Recognition technology.

After that, we are ready to proceed with preparing our computer for python coding by downloading and installing the anaconda package. Then we will install the rest of dependencies and libraries that we require including the dlib, face-recognition, opencv etc and will try a small program to see if everything is installed fine.

Most of you may not be coming from a python based programming background. The next few sessions and examples will help you get the basic python programming skill to proceed with the sessions included in this course. The topics include Python assignment, flow-control, functions and data structures.

Then we will have an introduction to the basics and working of face detectors which will detect human faces from a given media. We will try the python code to detect the faces from a given image and will extract the faces as separate images.

Then we will go ahead with face detection from a video. We will be streaming the real-time live video from the computer’s webcam and will try to detect faces from it. We will draw rectangle around each face detected in the live video.

In the next session, we will customize the face detection program to blur the detected faces dynamically from the webcam video stream.

After that we will try facial expression recognition using pre-trained deep learning model and will identify the facial emotions from the real-time webcam video as well as static images

And then we will try Age and Gender Prediction using pre-trained deep learning model and will identify the  Age and Gender from the real-time webcam video as well as static images

After face detection, we will have an introduction to the basics and working of face recognition which will identify the faces already detected.

In the next session, We will try the python code to identify the names of people and their the faces from a given image and will draw a rectangle around the face with their names on it.

Then, like as we did in face detection we will go ahead with face recognition from a video. We will be streaming the real-time live video from the computer’s webcam and will try to identify and name the faces in it. We will draw rectangle around each face detected and beneath that their names in the live video.

Most times during coding, along with the face matching decision, we may need to know how much matching the face is. For that we will get a parameter called face distance which is the magnitude of matching of two faces. We will later convert this face distance value to face matching percentage using simple mathematics.

In the coming two sessions, we will learn how to tweak the face landmark points used for face detection. We will draw line joining these face land mark points so that we can visualize the points in the face which the computer is used for evaluation.

Taking the landmark points customization to the next level, we will use the landmark points to create a custom face make-up for the face image.

That’s all about the topics which are currently included in this quick course. The code, images and libraries used in this course has been uploaded and shared in a folder. I will include the link to download them in the last session or the resource section of this course. You are free to use the code in your projects with no questions asked.

Also after completing this course, you will be provided with a course completion certificate which will add value to your portfolio.

So that’s all for now, see you soon in the class room. Happy learning and have a great time.

Elasticsearch 7 and the Elastic Stack: In Depth and Hands On

New for 2020! We’ve teamed up with Coralogix to co-produce the most comprehensive Elastic Stack course we’ve seen. Elasticsearch 7 is a powerful tool not only for powering search on big websites, but also for analyzing big data sets in a matter of milliseconds! It’s an increasingly popular technology, and a valuable skill to have in today’s job market. This course covers it all, from installation to operations, with over 100 lectures including 11 hours of video.

We’ll cover setting up search indices on an Elasticsearch 7 cluster (if you need Elasticsearch 5 or 6 – we have other courses on that), and querying that data in many different ways. Fuzzy searches, partial matches, search-as-you-type, pagination, sorting – you name it. And it’s not just theory, every lesson has hands-on examples where you’ll practice each skill using a virtual machine running Elasticsearch on your own PC.

We’ll explore what’s new in Elasticsearch 7 – including index lifecycle management, the deprecation of types and type mappings, and a hands-on activity with Elasticsearch SQL. We’ve also added much more depth on managing security with the Elastic Stack, and how backpressure works with Beats.

We cover, in depth, the often-overlooked problem of importing data into an Elasticsearch index. Whether it’s via raw RESTful queries, scripts using Elasticsearch API’s, or integration with other “big data” systems like Spark and Kafka – you’ll see many ways to get Elasticsearch started from large, existing data sets at scale. We’ll also stream data into Elasticsearch using Logstash and Filebeat – commonly referred to as the “ELK Stack” (Elasticsearch / Logstash / Kibana) or the “Elastic Stack“.

Elasticsearch isn’t just for search anymore – it has powerful aggregation capabilities for structured data. We’ll bucket and analyze data using Elasticsearch, and visualize it using the Elastic Stack’s web UI, Kibana and Kibana Lens.

You’ll learn how to manage operations on your Elastic Stack, using X-Pack to monitor your cluster’s health, and how to perform operational tasks like scaling up your cluster, and doing rolling restarts. We’ll also spin up Elasticsearch clusters in the cloud using Amazon Elasticsearch Service and the Elastic Cloud.

Elasticsearch is positioning itself to be a much faster alternative to Hadoop, Spark, and Flink for many common data analysis requirements. It’s an important tool to understand, and it’s easy to use! Dive in with me and I’ll show you what it’s all about.

Flutter & Dart – The Complete Guide [2021 Edition]

  • Basic programming language will help but is not a must-have
  • You can use either Windows, macOS or Linux for Android app development – iOS apps can only be built on macOS though
  • NO prior iOS or Android development experience is required
  • NO prior Flutter or Dart experience is required – this course starts at zero!

Description

The entire course was completely re-recorded and updated – it’s totally up-to-date with the latest version of Flutter!

With the latest update, I also added Push Notifications and Image Upload!

Join the most comprehensive & bestselling Flutter course and learn how to build amazing iOS and Android apps!

You don’t need to learn Android/ Java and iOS/ Swift to build real native mobile apps!

Flutter – a framework developed by Google – allows you to learn one language (Dart) and build beautiful native mobile apps in no time. Flutter is a SDK providing the tooling to compile Dart code into native code and it also gives you a rich set of pre-built and pre-styled UI elements (so called widgets) which you can use to compose your user interfaces.

Flutter is extremely trending and gets used for major Google apps like their Adwords app – it’s now marked as “ready for production”, hence now is the time to jump in and learn it!

This course will teach Flutter & Dart from scratch, NO prior knowledge of either of the two is required! And you certainly don’t need any Android or iOS development experience since the whole idea behind Flutter is to only learn one language.

You’ll learn Flutter not only in theory but we’ll build a complete, realistic app throughout this course. This app will feature both all the core basics as well as advanced features like using Google Maps, the device camera, adding animations and more!

With Flutter, you’ll be able to write code only once and ship your apps both to the Apple AppStore and Google Play.

Use Google’s Material Design to build beautiful, yet fully customizable, apps in no time with almost zero effort. You can use the rich widget suite Flutter provides to add common UI elements like buttons, switches, forms, toolbars, lists and more – or you simply build your own widgets – Flutter makes that a breeze, too.

Here’s what’s included in the course:

  • Detailed setup instructions for both macOS and Windows
  • A thorough introduction to Flutter, Dart and the concept behind widgets
  • An overview of the built-in widgets and how you may add your own ones
  • Debugging tipps & tricks
  • Page navigation with tabs, side drawers and stack-based navigation
  • State management solutions
  • Handling and validating user input
  • Connecting your Flutter app to backend servers by sending Http requests
  • User authentication
  • Adding Google Maps
  • Using native device features like the camera
  • Adding beautiful animations & page transitions
  • How to publish your app to the app stores
  • And more!

This course is for you if …

  • You’re interested in building real native mobile apps for the two most popular mobile platforms – iOS and Android
  • You want to explore the full set of features Flutter offers
  • Don’t want to spend hours learning two completely different languages

Course prerequisites:

  • Basic programming language knowledge will help a lot but is not a hard requirement
  • You DON’T need to know Flutter or Dart
  • You DON’T need to know iOS (Swift/ObjectiveC) or Android (Java)

Who this course is for:

  • Beginner and experienced developers who are interested in diving into mobile app development using one language for both platforms
  • Experienced iOS or Android developers who want to build cross-platform (iOS + Android) apps with one single programming language

The Advanced Xamarin Developer Masterclass

If you have some existing Xamarin development experience (perhaps completing or done at least done some of Eduardo’s (the courses instructor) Complete Xamarin Course, or another Xamarin course then this course is for you.

If you looking to take your existing Xamarin skills and learn more about the advanced features of Xamarin then this course can help.

Xamarin developers are well paid, and programmers with advanced skills (such as the ones you will learn in this course) are even more valuable to companies and tend to get paid more.

By the end of the course, you will become a Xamarin expert, using the most powerful features of the platform to create entirely native apps.

Along the way, you will learn how to leverage native functionality and even native Java and Objective-C code in your Xamarin Forms apps.

You’ll find out how to continuously deploy new versions of your app to your users .

And learn how to use version control for better deployment to other developers, testers, and the App Stores.

The key skills you will learn and master in this course include:-

1. Dependency Services

2. Custom Renderers

3. Using Java Libraries

4. Using Objective-C Libraries

5. App Center

6. Azure Bot Service for Chatbot

7. Behaviours and Effects

8. Azure Functions

9. Push Notifications

10. CSS Styling for Xamarin

What is Xamarin?

Xamarin is a Microsoft owned company, that allows developers, using a C#-shared codebase, to write native Android, iOS (and even Windows and MacOS) apps with native user interfaces and to share code.

This means you can create an application once, and deploy it to both Android and iOS, both which run natively on the platform.  One codebase, two platforms.

Learning to create apps with Xamarin makes you more valuable to your employer or clients as a result.

Is this course for you?

If you’ve never used Xamarin before, and/or do not know C# then this is NOT the course for you.  In that case we would suggest you purchase Eduardo’s Complete Xamarin course first, complete that and come back then to this advanced course.

But if you are familiar with C# and XAML and have some exposure to Xamarin then this course is aimed at you.

Why this course and not other Xamarin courses?

Eduardo already has one of the most comprehensive and popular Xamarin courses on Udemy.  Plus he has extensive experience with Xamarin and is also Xamarin certified.

Here is what just one student had to say about his other Xamarin course.

“I have just finished up to section 4 and loving every single bit about this course because the way Mr Eduardo explains is just amazing, because I have done a lot of other programming related courses where the instructor just displays a bunch of pre written code with alot of talk, and talk, and talk. However, the way Eduardo explains and takes his time to convey the message, simply love him” – Zeshan Hossein Ghayoomi.

By taking this course it means you are learning from someone who has all the professional training, skills, and experience needed to teach you how to become proficient in Xamarin the right way, as fast as possible.

If you are ready to get that first paid programming job, or to move up to a more senior programming position, then this course is for you!

What about if you have questions?

As if this course wasn’t complete enough, you have Eduardo on hand to answer any questions you have in the Q&A section of the course.

This means you’ll never find yourself stuck on one lesson for days on end. With his hand-holding guidance, you’ll progress smoothly through this course without any major roadblocks.

There’s no risk either!
