    On the brink of the 21st century, computer architecture and software skills have become essential. With widespread and growing access to the internet and its untold powers, harnessing the ‘untold’ seems the necessary next step. Three decades ago had you wanted to learn about the on-goings of a computer, you would have had to make your way to the library for hours on end to understand the basics. Today, many alternative exist for those looking to learn about the cogs that make the silicon era tick. Udemy is a front-runner for the cause.

    Udemy’s initiative

    Udemy is intended for those trying to pursue a hobby professionally, through the aid of professionals. Founded in 2007 by Turkish entrepreneurs Gagan Bayani, Eren Bali and Oktay Caglar and blowing up eventually in 2010, Udemy provides the most pristine solutions to our modern problems by providing world renowned professionals to create courses and make it available at large. With a selection of over a 100,000 courses and a third of them being in computers and related topics, Udemy’s online courses make information and skills of a professional available at the palm of your hands.

    Courses may take a few hours but the workload at which their content can be undertaken varies greatly. Coupled with the density of the information needed to take in, it is wise to give it time. A phrase as old as time had spouted – practice makes perfect, and that is certainly the case here. It’s likely to keep you busy for a few months if you are as adept as you think to be. Most courses are cheaper than an academic textbook for the semester. In addition, they are always curated by the best. The best in the business, that is: Revered professionals from highly sought after institutions and private corporations.

    Only the most well-known freelancers, those with the shiny certificates or bulging pockets put aside 5-30 hours of their time to indulge you. Let’s take you in on their secrets and their greatest achievements. Ready when you are, laid back in the living room or in your bed, all at your fingertips; any screen and lifetime access are perks that don’t hurt either.
