Udemy is one of the largest and well known online platforms for learning just about anything - from coding to business courses, it’s all there. There could be an opportunity here to build an suite of courses for Xojo - from beginner courses, to the more advanced and obscure topics. I realize that Xojo has a number of videos on YouTube…we discussed this in the final session at XDC, but that’s not the same as having a comprehensive, methodically laid out training course on Udemy.
Look how many courses are on Udemy that relate to Visual Studio - 2,233 at the moment: link text
For Xojo? Just ONE: link text
Bob Keeney has an excellent video training series that you can take advantage of now, and this is the model that would work well on Udemy, Coursera, or almost any other online learning platform. Perhaps Bob can bring his existing training videos over to Udemy. link text
Xojo’s web site is quite attractive and grabs your attention. However, your initial excitement might become diminished after you look for Xojo in the various online learning platforms that are out there. There are of course the YouTube videos that we know about, but some of them are older and there’s not enough energy and excitement in the presentation of those topics.
I am incredibly excited about building solutions in Xojo, especially after attending XDC, but I believe there needs to be a lot more out there in terms of online training resources for people who are initially exposed to Xojo.
