New Online Courses – Coming Soon

Header Image

You might have noticed that I haven’t been committing as much code recently. It’s because I’ve been working on 3 new online Codename One courses. One of my main goals with the bootcamp was to improve my video skills and modernize course materials. I’m well on my way with both and created pretty exhaustive materials so far.

Since these courses require a lot of work it’s hard to provide a set date for their release but I hope I’ll be able to publish at least the first two soon…​ Currently the plan is to release an introductory course, an advanced course & a professional app building course.

I’m not sure if the availability announcement of these courses will be mixed with the 3.7 release announcement which we will launch by the end of June but that might be something we’ll mash together to produce the maximum effect.

On to 3.7

Version 3.7 will launch by the end of the month, I have high hopes that we’ll have a new GUI builder overhaul for that release although this is still under heavy development so it’s touch and go.

There are some things I was hoping for such as on-device-debugging which we just don’t have time to finalize for 3.7. We do have a proof of concept showing this running but it also demonstrates rather succinctly why this is a challenging feature.

    can’t wait for the new videos. Will this be a course on Udemy?

  • Shai Almog says:

    We’re using teachable which has some advantages over Udemy. I used it in the bootcamp and generally liked it although it has its pain points. We might publish to Udemy too in the future although currently I’m inclined against that as it’s a lot of work to maintain both.

  • Michael Lindvall says:

    awesome. I’ve never heard of teachable. I’m going to create an account so I can watch the videos when they become available.

    Dear Shai, very nice to have these three courses by end of june. It will make CN1 development much easier.

    I hope that the new courses will be on Youtube 🙂
    I’m a new Codename One developer, in my opinion the new GUI Builder is still unusable: thanks for your efforts to make it better 🙂

  • Shai Almog says:

    Youtube isn’t built for that as we can’t attach additional materials, determine/track sequence and update lessons. We’ll use teachable which I used in the bootcamp and is pretty much the standard here.

  • Francesco Galgani says:

    Ok, I get it.
    I’m watching a lot of your teaching videos on Youtube about Codename One. I need subtitles, so I use the automatic ones provided by Youtube: they are not perfect, but good and very useful for me. Could you try to enable a similar functionality on the platform in which you will publish the new courses, please?

  • Shai Almog says:

    I don’t think most platforms have that. Some of the newer videos I’m making include slides and a transcript of my talk so you can read the text as well. Some of the things I did earlier don’t include that.
