I don't have time for a new course. Is this for me?

When will I receive the courses?

You'll get access to 8 audio courses, each about 1-2 hours long that are broken down into lessons of under 10 mins each, accessible via our web app. Mobile app coming soon.

This is for people who are curious about different technical topics. Instead of deep diving into the code, we’ll dig into the concepts behind tech topics you’ve always been curious about and explore how things actually work. 

Our courses are designed for beginners and assume no prior knowledge.

Once you sign up, we'll email you a login to a web app. That app will have all the courses available, along with the transcripts and any supplemental material. It'll also track your progress so you can see how far you got and where to pick up from. Mobile app coming soon.

We're currently building out the courses and you'll get them as soon as they're produced. New courses will be released every two weeks.

We're starting with machine learning, but soon, our audio courses will cover topics including:

• networking
• cloud computing
• devops
• security
• neural networks
• browsers
• processors
• edge computing
• containers
• cryptocurrency
• web monetization

• cloud infrastructure
• hardware

These courses focus on the concepts behind the code, so there will be no coding involved. You'll get to learn screen-free.

Yes! These audio courses are designed to be consumed on the go. They're beautifully produced and easy to digest. Listen and learn while you do your chores or go for a walk.

What people are saying about our first course:

60-day money-back guarantee.

"I highly recommend this course for anyone even slightly curious about Machine Learning. 

Saron has a gift of cutting through the fog and making even the most complex topics really easy to understand. The relatable examples really drive the concepts home and help you cement the knowledge. The tone, the pace, the music - everything about this course makes learning fun! 

It felt more like binging a great Netflix show than taking a course. Don't give it a second thought; this course is for YOU!"

Angie Jones
@techgirl1908

"The course is informative, structured, and serious but engaging enough to keep up when walking or doing chores.

Saron doesn't shy away from industry terms and going deep into the subject, while preserving the accessibility of content for 'outsiders' like myself."

Lia Kapanadze
@likunamatata

“The most simplified intro to machine learning. I would highly recommend giving this a try, especially if the subject is intimidating to you. Saron does a great job of explaining everything.”

Mariam Mohamd
@MariamV_96

"The course breaks down complex topics into easy to digest audio bites and utilizes great storytelling that guides you along your journey to understanding fundamental concepts in ML."

"Saron knocks down barriers to knowledge with her clear voice, thoughtful analogies, and her intolerance for gatekeeping.

She keeps us - and holds us! - in that ideal place of intellectual growth in order to maximize our understanding of a topic. She's a friend and teacher who never condescends. Rather than a dry lecture, Saron is your professor, study buddy, and friend, guiding you through the exciting world of machine learning."
