It was not easy and I for sure went through a lot of challenges along the way.
Here is how I did it! 👇
⚡ The Topic
I chose Svelte as the main focus because I had such a blast working with it on my last contract.
The team I worked with also picked it up very quickly because of its intuitive design principles.
⚡ The Timeline
I challenged myself to complete the course from start to finish in 5 weeks.
I barely made it but on the Friday of the last week, I submitted the course!
Setting a deadline for sure helped motivate me to continually work and plan out the course.
⚡ The Tools
Davinci Resolve for editing - Although the learning curve was a bit steep I got into a rhythm
Blue Yeti for recording - Been using it for our podcast so I know what it can do
Canva for slide creation - I've created thumbnails and Twitter headers with it before
I also had Matt help me edit the audio!
It should be the same audio quality that you're used to on the HTML All The Things Podcast! 🎙️ 🔥
⚡ The Struggles
Several recordings lost to computer crashes and muted microphones.
- Video card driver caused my computer to crash twice during recording 😭
- Stupidly had a muted microphone for 2 more recordings 😅
Little to no experience with editing made for some serious frustrations. Couldn't even cut video at first. 🤣
Confidence was tough to maintain. Who am I to be teaching anyone? Had to reassure myself a few times and power through.
⚡ The Course
The course was created. So what will you learn?
- How to build a simple web application using Svelte
We'll be creating a simple web that has a form for input, and displays inputted posts in a column.
It will have navigation and state management to manage data between components.
The project is more just a vessel to teach the core concepts.
The course also comes with 9 assignments. Each assignment will build on their corresponding lesson and force you to apply the knowledge you gained from coding alone with me.
I highly suggest doing the assignments as that will be what solidifies your skills!
I've got a link that will give you the course for the lowest amount I could set on Udemy.
Feel free to reach out with any questions while taking the course!
