This course is lead by instructor Imtiaz Ahmad, a Senior Software Engineer by trade and enthusiastic trainer @ Job Ready Programmer. I stress his credentials because the truth is anyone can teach programming, I could spin up a course right now on Udemy by doing nothing but copying a book that I like, trimming it down and reading the lines. That is not a course, that would be a dictation, and frankly a waste of my time.
What I look for in a course is an instructor whose been out in the flames for a while, gotten burnt, learned his lesson and can now teach me things to look out for. I think the best teachers do this almost instinctively, they’re wisest words seem to come as offhand remarks, quick references, or unintentional tangents peppered throughout the course. These moments where you tear away the veil of student – teacher – computer screen, and you see yourself applying the course in real life. That’s where I get my money’s worth, that is the gold nugget that short of having an apprenticeship I won’t get anywhere else. Imtiaz brings this real life knowledge to you in this course, showing you how you might see things written in the real world, variations in the use of SQL, and how you should write it to best utilize Oracle 12G.
