And I’d love to have you there!
I really enjoy teaching people. That’s why I decided to start Full-Stack Fundamentals, a place where I can record screencasts and create courses and lessons surrounding various technical (and non-technical) web development skills.
Scratching My Own Itch
Often times, I’ll see someone on the internet write a cool tutorial or explain a concept. And if I’ve had some experience with that topic, I’ll think, “Gosh, I wish I had an outlet to talk about my experiences and help others learn.”
Of course, I have this blog. Which I rarely update. But back in January 2017, I released a five-part video series about Laravel and Vue. It’s been viewed over 100,000 times. It seems I struck a chord!
So I’m going to go all in. I’m inspired by Laracasts, Wes Bos, GoRails, Front-end Masters, and Vue Mastery. Are there already places that do this kind of thing? Absolutely. But there are a lot of people in the world, and I hope to reach those people who might give a damn about me talking about stuff I know.
Educational and Community Partners
I’d love for this to not be “yet another tutorial website.” So I’ve made it a goal to create example exercises and apps during my screencasts which not only teach the skills effectively, but also encourage students to build things that help out their communities. For example, building an app for a food bank, or an inventory system for a non-profit.
I’m also in talks to partner with the local school district and offer training for students and teachers who are at the very early stages of learning web development. This is exciting to me!
