Do you want to become a software developer? Or a better one?

I'll soon be starting an online training course for absolute beginners who want to learn computer programming so as to start a career in software development. This will also be beneficial for those who already studied software engineering or BTech or such but do not understand concepts well, and need expert hands-on help. It will also help already working software engineers understand coding better and do their job better.

To receive an email when the course is launched, please sign up for the mailing list.

Art thou in misery, brother? Then I pray
Be comforted. Thy grief shall pass away.
Art thou elated? Ah, be not too gay;
Temper thy joy, this, too, shall pass away.
Art thou in danger? Still let reason sway,
And cling to hope: this, too, shall pass away.
Tempted art thou? In all thine anguish lay
One truth to heart: this, too, shall pass away.
Do rays of loftier glory round thee play?
King-like art thou? This, too, shall pass away!
Wherever thou art, wherever thy footsteps stray,
Heed these wise words: This too shall pass away!

Paul Hamilton Hayne

Feeling down and low? No problem, it will pass away soon. Feeling great? Great! But it too will pass away soon.

Glad or sad, dwell not too much over your condition, for it is only for a few moments. It will pass away any minute now.
