Every time I begin learning to code I get sidetracked with some other flashy course or fad?
I started learning to code recently but quickly lost focus and clarity in how to progress.
I want to learn to code in 2019 and change careers, but there are so many options out there. Which course or path do I take to ensure success?
I've recommitted now 5 times to the #100DaysOfCode challenge, and each time failed, just to start over again. I feel like I'm not making any progress here
If these sound familiar then you are in the right place, my friend!
But it's time now to get serious...
It's time YOU Learn to Code and Land that Job in 2019!
Let me let you in on a little secret...
All coding courses teach you the same things!!
You can take HTML with me or with anyone else...we'll teach you the same things
You can take CSS with me or with anyone else...we'll all teach you the same things
What is the ONE DIFFERENTIAL in all of it?
Total success with my course can be achieved by your dedication to it. I have provided you wth the blueprint, the accountability, and the clarity...
Can you commit to completing it?
Are you determined to once and for all learn to code and land that job?Then secure your spot today!
Not at all!
In fact, the statistics on Bootcamps are not looking good.
Last year we saw the closing of two major bootcamps: Dev Bootcamp and The Iron Yard.
Bootcamps, as nice as an idea as they were, have proven less successful in preparing aspiring coders for real-life job scenarios as had hoped.
Companies are catching onto the fact that these graduates are still unprepared.
- A surface level accountability
- Generalized curriculums
- Lack of Real-life preparation
- A rush through foundational thinking
- Lack of confidence and ability upon completion
- ..and more
The learn to code blueprint is a 6-month, step-by-step, week-by-week course that will take you from the foundations of programming, to being a confident programmer ready to land that dev job.
The difference makers are:
The curriculum is hand-picked from around the web, customized, fluff-free, and created with a progress-driven mindset.
In addition to the core curriculum, the course is full of instructional videos, professional tips, and productivity hacks from the instructor to not only help you digest the material, but to apply these lessons practically in your career.
Students will be invited to join a private Slack group and will be enouraged to seek help from, and interact with, other students in the group and with the course instructor for the sake of accountability and community.
Students will receive all project material from a mock web agency and will perform real-life, customized tasks/builds, that build confidence. No "follow along with me" projects.
Students will be able to select a speciality in month 4 based on their goals and what languages/frameworks are relevant in their area or desired area.
Who am I?
Hi I'm Travis
I'm a freelance web developer, blogger and digital strategist over at Travis Media.
A little over two years ago I, myself, entered a bootcamp and within three months left it to never return.
Because it was too generic, very impersonal. The curriculum included things not relevant for me in my city or immediate situation.
So while I left the bootcamp, I didn't stop learning.
I started taking jobs, doing work for agencies, building things I had never attempted before. I've built a thriving blog, coached a number of budding coders, authored several books, and taught several coding courses out in cyberspace.
And since that time I came to realize many tactics that would have helped me immensely along the way....that would have given me more confidence, more skill, and would have helped me progress faster as a newbie web developer
And I'm packing it all in this one course. So YOU can learn faster, more efficiently, and land that job in 2019!
My passion is not only coding itself, but helping others learn and succeed in their desired careers. I want to help YOU learn to code and land that job.
1. You are unknowingly stuck in the cyclical "loop of learning"
You have a ton of courses bought and you keep jumping around to different ones based on the distractive recommendations of others. Having no goal, you are constantly learning, but getting nowhere.
2. You are not give enough attention to the foundations
3. You are "following along" with too many tutorials, and not building anything yourself.
The majority of coding tutorials have the instructor lead you in the projects. Sure you end up with some nice projects, but can you explain or recreate them to potential employers?
4. You are learning the newest fad and not the specific language(s) to land the job.
Wes Bos makes React look fun. Data science is in demand. But this doesn't mean you should pursue them. If you do, then you will always be chasing rabbit trails. You need clarity on the best specialty to pursue in your target area. But only after nailing down the fundamentals.
5. You keep "committing" to challenges that you will probably fail to complete.
I love the #100DaysOfCode challenge, but it's only a means to a goal, not the goal itself. If you only made it 50 days, give yourself a high five for coding 50 days in a row!...not beat yourself up for not making it 100. After you do, stop re-committing and move on with your bigger goals.

- You may enroll at any time during the open enrollments (usually once or twice a month, so join the notification list, if not open, to be alerted), but the class will only become active for you the day before your start date, which will be the Monday after you enroll. So be on the lookout on Sunday for instructions on how to activate the course.
- Please start preparing for the course a few days before your start date so that you can hit the ground running when it opens up.
What are the pre-requisites or requirements for this course?
None. This course starts with the foundations. If you are well-advanced in coding already, this course may not be for you.
What if I have questions or need help along the way?
I encourage interaction with the Facebook community as there you will find students taking the course alongside you. I will also be active there to help you out. But if that isn't enough you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be glad to help you out.
Do you teach all the courses?
I do not. I have created the projects and I do a good number of videos here and there throughout the course with tutorials, tips, walkthroughs, etc., but most of the core curriculum is hand-picked (by myself) from around the internet.
Can you ensure that I will get a job upon completing this course?
No. I have laid out the blueprint and if you diligently work through it, you will be well-equipped to land a job. But ultimately, you will have to put in the work to find success. I'm simply removing the barriers for you to do that.
Will I have to purchase any other courses throughout the course
Very little. The first three months are covered, no charge. The specialization month (month 4), depending on what you specialize in, you may have to purchase a course for that speciality. Month 5, no charge. Month 6 will have some optional courses to take that will require a one-month Lynda.com subscription.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the length of the course and other digital concerns, I offer only a two-week, no-hassle, no-questions-asked, refund.
