Course Description

Last updated: December 16th, 2015

Derek Sivers, founder of CDBaby, is a coding entrepreneur. He learned how to do it all from scratch and launched a multi-million dollar marketplace to help artists everywhere get their CDs sold.

This was 1998. Before most current web technologies and great frameworks like Django.

Sivers is an unusual coding entrepreneur because he never really considered himself a "programmer" or "entrepreneur" -- instead, Sivers saw there was something he wanted to do and figured out how to do it.

The word "Entrepreneur" is thrown around so much and has even spawned the word "Wantrapreneur" for those who talk but never take action.

It's time to throwaway the notion and labels. All we need is action.

This course, is the pinnacle of the Coding for Entrepreneurs series. We've learned so much from the 85k+ strong CFE community, that has help shaped this class into a improved version of the original.

Join us, while you learn to craft your own CDBaby for the modern day. Join us, to continue cultivating the mindset of "whatever needs to get done, I'll figure out to make it happen."

Cheers.

Justin

Instructor Biography

Justin Mitchel, Coding Entrepreneur & Teacher

It all started with an idea. I wanted freedom... badly. Freedom from work, freedom from boredom, and, most of all, the freedom to choose. This simple idea grew to define me; it made me become an entrepreneur.

As I strived to gain freedom, overtime I realized that with everything that you do you can either (1) convince someone, somehow, to do it with you or (2) figure out how to do it yourself.

Due to a lack of financial resources (and probably the ability to convince people to do high quality work for free), I decided to learn. Then learn some more. Then some more. My path of learning website design started a long time ago. And yes, it was out of need not desire. I believed I needed a website for a company that I started. So I learned how to do it. The company died, my skills lived on... and got better and better.

It took me a while after learning web design (html/css) to actually start learning programming (web application, storing "data", user logins, etc). I tinkered with Wordpress, believing it could be a "user" site, but I was mistaken. Sure there are/were hacks for that, but they were hacks/work-arounds and simply not-what-wordpress-was-indended-to-be. Wordpress is for blogs/content. Plain and simple.

I wanted more. I had a web application idea that I thought would change the way restaurants hire their service staff. I tested it with my basic html/css skills, had great initial results, and found a technical (programmer) cofounder as a result. He was awesome. We were featured on CNN. Things looked great.

Until... cash-flow was a no-flow. Business? I think not. More like an avid hobby. We had the idea for a business just no business. Naturally, my partner had to find a means of income so I was left with the idea on its own.

Remember how I said everything we do has 2 choices. Well I tried the convincing. Now it was time to try the learning. I opted to learn and haven't looked back since. I tried almost every language out there: PHP, Ruby on Rails, SQL, Objective C, C++, Java, Javascript. I was lost.

Then, I tried Python. I was hooked. It was so easy. So simple. So elegant.

Then, I tried Django. Even more hooked. Made from python & made for web applications. It powers Instagram & Pinterest (two of the hottest web apps right now?).

Then, I tried Bootstrap. Simple and easy front-end design (html & css) that is super easy to use, mobile-ready, and overall... incredible.

Python, Django, and Bootstrap are truly changing the way the world builds web applications. I believe it's because of the simplicity to learn, the sheer power behind them, and, most of all, the plethora of resources to aid anyone in building their web projects (from packages to tutorials to q&a sites).

I relaunched my original venture with my new found skills. That wasn't enough. It didn't compel me as it once had. I started imagining all the possibilities of all the ideas I've always wanted to implement. Now I could. Which one to start with? There were so many good ideas...

Then another idea, a new & fresh idea, started brewing. I started to believe in the power of learning these skills. What would it mean if other non-technical entrepreneurs could learn? What would it mean if ideas were executed quickly, revenue models proven, all prior to approaching the highly sought-after programmers? What would it mean if entrepreneurs became coders?

And so. Coding for Entrepreneurs was born.

Here are some bio highlights:

  • Adjunct Professor of Entrepreneurship at the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies in the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California
  • Bestselling instructor on Udemy
  • Funded creator on Kickstarter
  • Founder of Coding For Entrepreneurs
  • Cohost of Backer Radio
