Developer Roadmap to Excellence and Building Your Own Thing
In the 2020 StackOverflow survey, approx. 75% of the respondents stated that they learn a new
technology at least every few months or once a year. This data
substantiates how rapidly tech innovation is happening and how often the
developers have to upskill to avoid becoming dinosaurs.
How do we cope up with such constant changes in technology? How often do
you experience FOMO when you hear your peers discussing a shiny new
tech? Do your eyes widen in disbelief when you read on that frequented
coding website of yours, “The framework XYZ (you invested a lot of time & effort learning) is
now deprecated, and why you should use this new framework instead?“.
Is there a technology that I can learn or a domain that I can be in to
stay future-proof? Also, does the recent rise in the popularity of no
code, low code in the application development universe going to cut down
coding jobs? Are these platforms the future of application development?
Is this the end of developers? Or is there a way to thrive despite these
rapid developments in tech?
In this course, I share with you the roadmap and techniques that I
follow to keep my sanity in this ever-changing world of software
development and stay relevant at the same time without killing myself.
I share a perspective that enables me to develop an immunity against the
temptation to learn these shiny new libraries, frameworks, programming
languages, domains as they pop up. These never-ending debates on the
web, like “Java is dead. SQL is dead. Contributing to OS projects on
GitHub is the only way to stand out as a programmer. No code is the
future of application development.” do not affect my peace of mind.
This course will enlighten you on what companies look for in a dev
resume? What makes them pick up that phone and give you a call for the
interview? I also discuss the questions that I get asked the most on
LinkedIn “If a developer can switch their domain after n years of
experience? If yes, how? My job doesn’t involve much development work;
what do I do?”
Moreover, if you are looking to go down that entrepreneurship road
aiming for financial freedom, I discuss the latest development trends
and opportunities for devs in the space, giving you deep insights into
how you can start with your own thing.
This crisp guide is helpful for experienced software developers as well
as those freshly looking to plunge into the application development
domain. In this course, you’ll find actionable advice and critical
points that will enable you to make informed career decisions and
accelerate your career at MACH speed.

You’ll have 5 years of access to the course content. Please read the
FAQs below before making the purchase.
Why is this Course Text-based?
My courses are intentionally text-based. The text format of the course
enables you to learn faster than the videos. Learning through reading is
way faster than sitting through hours of videos. It is easy to take
notes—no pausing the videos to take notes or screenshots of diagrams.
You can always go back to specific topics immediately when you need
Also, my courses are frequently updated. New information is continually
added. It is easy for me to update the text-based content as opposed to
re-recording a video every time a tiny update needs to be made. Imagine
that. It would be killing.
How Long Do I Have Access to the Course Content?
You will have up to five years of access to the course content from the date of
Why Aren’t You Offering Lifetime Access?
I would be happy to but cannot primarily due to two reasons:
1. I have significant recurring monthly expenses in the form of platform
fees, hosting charges, marketing, international tax compliance and other
maintenance costs. Offering lifetime access would significantly spike
the price of the courses. In order to keep the content affordable, I had
to time restrict access to the platform.
2. The content of my courses is continually updated besides the new
content that is added. The application development domain continues to
evolve and as it evolves the courses get updated accordingly. With my
courses, you’ll stay on top of the latest developments in the domain.
And, as you might have figured this demands continual time investment 🙂
