  • Hey, what's up?

  • John Sonmez here from SimpleProgrammer.com.

  • So today, I want to talk about a problem, a serious problem

  • that most often developers have--

  • that I've struggled with myself--

  • which is basically being overwhelmed by technology

  • and feeling like you just can't learn things quickly enough.

  • This is a huge problem.

  • Like I said, most developers that I talk

  • to mention this in some way.

  • They talk about how technology is changing so fast, how

  • there's so many new JavaScript frameworks out there,

  • how they are trying to learn a programming language,

  • and learn a framework, and there are so many things

  • that they have to learn in their career--

  • especially if you're a new developer,

  • or you're trying to get into software development,

  • and you can't get that first job,

  • and you just have so many things that are overwhelming you,

  • and it feels like it's going to take so long for you to be

  • able to absorb and gain the knowledge

  • that you need to succeed in the field.

  • And, you know, the other thing about this

  • is that having the ability to be able to learn quickly,

  • having the ability to be able to absorb information

  • and to systematically get that information into your head

  • and to become proficient is a huge, huge advantage

  • in this field.

  • The software developers that can learn quickly,

  • that can assimilate information, they

  • end up rising to the top of their field.

  • They end up making a lot more money.

  • They can basically be on the bleeding edge

  • if they need to, because they can learn a framework,

  • they can use learn a new technology

  • and use that right away.

  • So this is a huge, huge problem.

  • And I do have a solution for it.

  • And I want to talk to you about that solution for it today.

  • Because some of you have been following my channel

  • for a while.

  • Some of you are brand new to the channel.

  • You've never seen this.

  • You're just interested in how to you to learn something quickly.

  • So I want to tell you about this product

  • that I put together specifically for that.

  • And it's one of those things that, like I said,

  • it's so important and so critical.

  • This was one of the very first things that--

  • when I started creating products for Simple Programmer--

  • that I created, because I thought

  • it was so, so important.

  • And it was something that hurt me so much in my career

  • when I didn't know how to learn quickly.

  • So let me tell you what my story is, like

  • how I developed this program and the results that I got.

  • So I had always been the person who bought books

  • from the bookstore.

  • I bought a lot of programming books,

  • and I would read through those books cover to cover.

  • And it was a waste of time.

  • I spent a lot of my time, a lot of my money.

  • And I didn't really absorb a lot from it.

  • I didn't understand what was going on.

  • And, you know, I did gain some knowledge, but not nearly

  • what I wanted to.

  • And I felt like it was just not fast enough.

  • It was just taking too long.

  • And plus, who wants to read a damn boring book

  • all the time, right?

  • So what I ended up doing, or what end up happening to me

  • was I started creating courses for a company called

  • Pluralsight.

  • And you can check out-- actually,

  • I've created 55 courses for Pluralsight

  • on a variety of all kinds of different topics,

  • all different programming languages.

  • And I did this over about a two and a half year period.

  • So we're talking two to three hour courses.

  • So basically, my feet were held to the fire.

  • I wanted to become the most prolific author on Pluralsight.

  • Site And in order to do that, I needed

  • to keep on pumping out courses.

  • But the only problem was that I very quickly reached

  • the end of my knowledge.

  • Even with 15 years development experience, I still--

  • I didn't know every technology, every framework, right?

  • And plus, they wanted to do courses

  • on brand new programming languages like Go,

  • and Dart, and Objective C at the time.

  • Well, I guess it wasn't new at the time,

  • but not too many people were well-versed in it that could

  • teach courses--

  • way back then at the time when I first created that course.

  • But I had to learn all this stuff--

  • right-- to be able to teach it.

  • And I had to learn it quickly.

  • So basically, in order to keep up with my routine,

  • I had to be able to learn entire programming

  • languages, entire frameworks, in less than a

  • week and then be able to be so competent at it

  • that I could teach them.

  • I'm teaching those programming languages

  • and a lot of different frameworks and technologies.

  • And I'm teaching them to a level that

  • will help someone else to be proficient at it.

  • But how did I do that?

  • How did I master that stuff?

  • How did I learn so quickly?

  • Like I said, well, my feet were held to the fire,

  • so I had to figure out systems.

  • I had to figure out ways of doing this.

  • So I spent a lot of time trying to figure out,

  • trying to absorb information quickly.

  • And really, because I was in such a bind, because I

  • had got in over my head, I had to figure out

  • how I was going to do this, OK?

  • So what I ended up doing was I ended up developing a system.

  • I ended up figuring out that I couldn't just

  • read books cover to cover.

  • I couldn't just watch entire tutorials.

  • Instead, I had to come up with a learning plan.

  • I had to come up with a process, a system

  • that I could use time and time again

  • in order to accelerate my learning,

  • to be able to absorb more information,

  • to really deepen my understanding

  • and be able to quickly move on to the next topic

  • and even know it well enough that I could teach it.

  • So that's what I did-- was I developed that system.

  • And I was flying, right?

  • In one year, I ended up doing over 30 Pluralsight courses.

  • That was my most prolific year.

  • And I ended up actually taking the last month or last two

  • months of the year off, because I

  • reached my goal ahead of time.

  • So I know that this system works, because, believe me,

  • I've used it, OK?

  • And not only that, but I have hundreds of--

  • actually, thousands of developers at this time--

  • that have bought my course on "10 Steps to Learn Anything

  • Quickly," which we can put up here.

  • That's what I'm telling you about today.

  • And I I'm a big believer in it, because, like I said,

  • I've gotten the results.

  • We've got tons of developers that

  • have gotten results from it.

  • So I wanted to do a video just to tell you about this.

  • I know that some of you have been watching

  • that channel for a while.

  • Some of you haven't heard about this course.

  • Some of you have heard about it if I've talked

  • about it in other videos.

  • But I wanted to do a dedicated video just to talk about this,

  • because I think it's such an important thing.

  • And I want to tell you a little bit about the course.

  • So the course, basically, is a fairly short course.

  • It's not it's not a huge investment of time.

  • I didn't want to make it a huge investment of time.

  • It's a video of course.

  • It has a workbook, an interactive workbook,

  • where you can go through and actually go through

  • and practice that process.

  • Because you've got to go through this process,

  • this 10-step process multiple times.

  • I have a filled out version of the workbook

  • that you can see how I went through the process.

  • And in the video of course, I show you

  • exactly how I'm applying this.

  • And I actually learn how to dual pixel art,

  • you know, something that's kind of weird and abstract.

  • I also include a bunch of bonus information,

  • a couple of different videos.

  • I've got a specific video where I

  • talk about how to learn a programming language

  • and how to learn a programming language fast.

  • And I go through the process that I

  • would follow to do that--

  • so pretty much everything that you

  • need to know to be able to learn anything quickly.

  • Like I said, thousands of developers at this point

  • have used the course, have been able to get huge results.

  • I get emails every day from developers

  • that say that now they can learn quickly

  • and how they wasted so much time--

  • right?

  • This was me.

  • I hope that I can save you from this, which was basically

  • spending so much time reading books cover to cover.

  • So I'll tell you what--

  • here's the deal.

  • You can check out the course here, OK?

  • And if you have any interest in this, I'm telling you,

  • this will help you as a software developer.

  • This is why I'm going to push this course so

  • hard is because I really honestly believe

  • that this will help you.

  • If you develop these set of skills.

  • It's fairly simple of framework, but you've

  • got to see it in action.

  • And I'll tell you this-- this is how sure I am.

  • I give you a 100% money back guarantee, right?

  • If any reason, for up to a year, you feel like this course is

  • not helping you, it's not worth it,

  • whatever reason that you have-- right--

  • you know, I'm trusting you.

  • I'm trusting that you're not going to take advantage of me

  • and just buy the course and ask for a refund.

  • But whatever reason, if you feel like the course is not for you

  • and it's not helping you, 100% money back guarantee.

  • We don't get a lot of people that

  • ever ask for refunds on this course

  • simply because it really does help.

  • I mean, it really is useful.

  • Like I said, I used this myself to do 55 Pluralsight courses

  • in like a two and a half year period

  • to learn entire programming languages,

  • frameworks, and be able to teach them.

  • This is going to be life-changing for you

  • if you're a developer and you've struggled with learning things.

  • And this is just the best method that I've ever found

  • to be able to learn quickly.

  • So I still use the method today.

  • There's still a lot of things that I have to learn,

  • and I learn them quickly.

  • And I hope that you find it useful.

  • Again, check it out.

  • Let me know what you think about the course

  • after you take the course.

  • Like I said, thousands of developers

  • have already taken the course.

  • And 100% money back guarantee, so there's really no risk.

  • You might as well try it out.

  • And I wouldn't push it so hard if I didn't really

  • believe in it so much, but I feel

  • like everyone needs to have this knowledge

  • and to be able to go through that course.

  • And like I said, it's not something I can just

  • distribute on YouTube.

  • You know, obviously, there's some depth to it.

  • And there's a workbook and a lot of different components to it.

  • But go check it out if you haven't already.

  • All right, hopefully you find that useful.

  • I'll talk to you next time.

  • Take care.
