Microcourses

Assess. Build. Coach. Deliver.

Over the years people have come to us wanting to learn how to do different things. So we decided to start making courses.

Below are the courses we offer on udemy — and we’re constantly coming up with new ideas to share.

 

Soup to Nuts: Starting Up a Podcast

Podcasting’s the best kept secret to getting your name/brand/message/thoughts out in the world, and everything I’ve learned about it, I learned The Hard Way(tm)

Since July 2019, when I started my first show (and now am up to FOUR) I’ve learned a ton. I’ve also learned that much of what I’d been doing was… not the most efficient. It was stressful, and I kept feeling like I was falling way behind on something that I should have been passionate and excited about.

But now? Now I’m pretty efficient at not just hosting and publishing shows, but even creating new ones. The passion’s back. The fun is back. It’s down to a science. Now I’m sharing everything I know, with you!

Because of the pandemic, podcasting is set to be one of the topmost ways people consume content. And that’s great, because instead of being a medium that requires their eyeballs and hands, they can be busy doing other things while they’re listening. And that means they listen for longer. A LOT longer.

If you’ve been thinking, “I should start a podcast,” or, “I wonder what other ways I can get content out to the world?” I want to help you get a podcast started. And with more than an hour’s worth of content, you’ll learn everything I know.

The way I do that is walk through individual things that you’ll need to think about as you develop your show. Even if it’s just a spark of an idea right now, I’d like to help fan that spark into a fire that gets you excited to share whatever it is that you’re excited about, to a large audience.

If you’re ready, give the free preview a listen and see if this course is right for you.

Breaking Into Software Test Automation

This course is the result of dozens of people asking, “How do I get started learning test automation?” Years ago we would’ve pointed them toward huge sites with tons to read. It ended up scaring people off.

I changed my strategy by suggesting that they write up a small project. Something that they can finish relatively quickly, but will teach them the basics of automation.

The project? A messaging bot for LinkedIn.

This course actually digs deeper and shows you the building blocks of what goes into creating this messaging bot. But the end result is totally up to you. Once you know the basics, you can build-a-bot all on your own and add it to your portfolio and your knowledge base.

Everybody who’s written this messaging bot has had a lot of fun. Now it’s your turn!
