Hey there student!

This course is made to quickly show you how to develop a simple Discord bot. This course is designed to get you to launch a Discord bot within the same day of enrollment. Very very basic bot to show you the proof of concept about Discord bots.

Why are Discord bots useful? Discord bots can do a lot for you, such as gathering advanced API data from ex Blizzard websites displaying character information in World of Warcraft. Or down to a simple feature that welcomes a new user to the Discord server. Or keeping track of when a user edits or deletes a message.

Why trust me?

I've been developing different kinds of software including a lot of web development during my timespan as a developer. Creating complex functions with tons of security is my favorite. Creating outstanding code is my focus. I'm teaching you nodejs in this course which is the fastest language to use when it comes to Discord bots. I have 4 years of experience in programming and I've used different languages to build different type of software applications. When my first Discord bot course was released, I received a lot of positive feedback. Now I'm creating a short and sweet course for those who wants to develop a basic Discord bot.

Hi, my name is Erik Petersson and I'm a certified .NET developer from Sweden. I have a burning passion for software development, game development, web development and building other cool applications with hardware and software combined. I also work with UI, UX, Design.

I remember my first 2 years programming I was struggling big time. Over the years I've excelled in programming at a very fast rate becoming an all-around strong web developer and programmer.

I'm creating courses that not only teaches you a new skill, I'm also focusing on teaching you how to learn. With my understanding how I struggled my first 2 years I will teach you the right way. So that you can learn fast and effective.

I have 4+ years of experience with developing web applications. I spent my first years with .net, I've used nodejs/express/mongodb for over 2 years now. I've built a lot of website applications and I'm building stunning websites. To add to my web development experience, I have a good base knowledge for SEO, testing applications, UX driven web development for better conversion, RESTful, CRUD, focused on developing real world applications rather than practise-applications.

I do also have experience in JavaScript game development on a 2d canvas. Basically browser games. I build cool projects with Arduino, both hardware and software.

I work for myself in terms of software development. I am a business owner and I know what is important in many different areas. I know the importance of a cutting edge website.

My goal is to teach on Udemy and do well with my business outside of Udemy. Since I love software development I will base my courses around real world applications so that you are creating projects that are actually used in the real world.

I explore as much as I can so I can deliver top quality courses.
